The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development dubbed NOMA across multiple lots in West Town. Consisting of a mix of adaptive re-use and new construction, the multi-phase project is generally bound by W Ohio Street to the north, W Hubbard Street to the south, N Halsted to the west, and N Des Plaines Street to the east. The team at Shapack Partners, who developed various West Loop properties, is partnering with architecture firms Chicago-based Eckenhoff Saunders and New York-based ODA on its design.
Initial demolition permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 566 W Van Buren Street in West Loop Gate. Located on the northeast corner with S Jefferson Street, the new structure will replace a large surface parking lot along with two existing commercial buildings dating back to the 1890s. Led by co-developers Riverside Investment and Blue Star Properties, the project is being designed by Antunovich Associates who worked on the recently completed 609 W Randolph Street nearby in a similar industrial style.
Initial permits have been approved for the mixed-use development at 1203 N California Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located on the northeast corner with W Division Street, the upcoming structure received foundation permits and will replace a vacant lot across the street from the neighborhood’s namesake park. The team at the locally based Hispanic Housing Development Corporation are leading the project with Chicago-based Pappageorge Haymes Partners working on its design.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 1016 W Jackson Boulevard in the West Loop. Located just west of the intersection with S Morgan Street, the new project will replace an existing five-story office building and its parking lot that currently occupy the site. The team at Chicago-based Mavrek Development is leading the proposal with local firm BKV Group who also worked on 525 S Wabash Avenue being in charge of its design.
Cladding installation has started on a five-story residential structure located at 913 W School Street in Lake View. The Hageman Group plans to have a total of 22 apartments, which will include four studios, eight one-bedrooms, eight two-bedrooms, and two three-bedroom apartments. Nearly half of the residences will have outdoor access, in which four of the units will have balconies and another six will have terraces.
