Plans have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 250 W 22nd Place in Chinatown. Located just west of the intersection with S Wentworth Avenue, the project comes at a time when Chicago’s Chinatown seems to be growing and maintaining its identity compared to others nationally. The proposal will replace the existing two-story Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA) building and its adjacent lots with a new singular structure. The development team is made up of the CCBA and the Michaels Development Company who have tapped WJW Architects for the design.
Continuing its rapid ascension, structural work is now past the 400-foot mark for 1000M, a 74-story residential skyscraper in South Loop. At 788 feet in height, the project is being developed by JK Equities, Time Equities, and Oak Capitals. Pivoting from the 506 condominium units originally planned, the residences will now comprise 738 rental apartments.
Initial plans have been revealed for the residential development at 3925 N Clarendon Avenue in Lakeview. Revealed via Alderman Cappleman’s website, the proposal looks to replace a slim and long empty lot just south of the intersection with W Irving Park Road in between two existing residential structures. Local developer George Bahramis is working with Jonathan Splitt Architects on the 33-foot-wide design, leaving one additional similarly-sized parking lot left on the block to be redeveloped.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 4000 W North Avenue in Humboldt Park. Dubbed Team Pioneros, the project will restore the existing Pioneer Bank building on the corner with N Pulaski Road and construct a new structure behind it. The colorful proposal is also a winner of the city’s Invest South/West initiative and is being led by Park Row Development as well as local architecture firm JGMA, who will eventually call the property home when the firm moves its current offices.
Updated renderings and details have been revealed for the upcoming mixed-use skyscraper at 900 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market. Coming in at third place on last year’s countdown list, the nearly completed tower is located on N Peoria Street and has officially received a new name and will now be known as ‘The Row’, due to its proximity to restaurant row. Developer Related Midwest has been working on the structure designed by New York-based Morris Adjmi Architects who also worked on the nearby 917 Fulton Market YIMBY recently covered.
