Plans have been revealed for a new residential development at 453-455 W Briar Place in Lake View East. Located east of N Broadway and near Lincoln Park, the new structure will replace two existing multi-story homes built in the early 1900s that together make up a 9,180-square-foot lot. Locally-based GVP Development is leading the proposal along with design firm SGW Architecture who aims to mimic the style of its surroundings.
Facade work continues on this year’s 10th tallest development at 1400 S Wabash Avenue in the South Loop. The mixed-use building has topped out and its facade continues to rise at the intersection with E 14th Street. The rear of the structure abuts up to the CTA Green Line tracks, continuing to create an urban canyon for the train tracks. Chicago-based CMK Companies, who also developed the nearby Imprint tower, is leading the project and Pappageorge Haymes is responsible for the design.
Foundation work is ready to give way to vertical construction for the mixed-use development at 225 N Elizabeth Street in Fulton Market District, where many of this year’s entries are. Located on the southeast corner with W Fulton Street, foundation work is currently well underway for the structure after it completed the removal of the previous empty surface lot on the site. Developers Sterling Bay and Colorado-based Ascentris have been leading the charge on the Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture-designed-structure.
Updated renderings have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 1016 W Jackson Boulevard in West Loop. Set to replace an existing office building just west of the intersection with S Morgan Street, news on the project broke late this October and just now had its first community meeting where the images were shown. Chicago-based Mavrek Development is behind the proposal with architecture firm BKV Group crafting its design, who also worked on the proposed structures at 525 S Wabash Avenue.
Capturing the 15th spot in this year’s countdown is the mixed-use development at 410 S Wabash Avenue in The Loop. Located on the southwest corner with E Van Buren Street, the structure will replace a vacant surface lot directly adjacent to the famed CTA tracks that give the neighborhood its name. North Carolina-based developer Lennar Multifamily Company which recently rebranded as Quarterra is behind the project along with architecture firm Antunovich Associates on its design.
