The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 914 W 63rd Street in Englewood. Located on the northeast corner of the intersection with S Halsted Parkway, the proposal dubbed ‘Englewood Thrive’ will be replacing a large vacant lot just west of Englewood Connect which broke ground recently. Developer DL3 Realty is working with the local office of Perkins & Will on the design of the multi-phase project which hopes to foster growth and provide new housing in the changing area.
Initial construction permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 5159 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located on the southeastern corner with W Foster Avenue, the new structure will replace a currently vacant lot that up until recently held multiple one-story commercial buildings which were home to local stalwart Jimmy’s Pizza Cafe. Developer Grand Properties Acquisitions LLC is working with Chicago-based Hanna Architects, who designed a very similar proposal just up the street at 5214 N Lincoln Avenue.
The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for the mixed-use development at 301 E 43rd Street in Bronzeville.

Developers P3 Markets and The Habitat Company are working with local designers Moody Nolan and Landon Bone Baker on the new affordable structure.
As the sixth entry in our Dead by Design series, the Chicago Spire was a proposed 150-story “megatall” skyscraper that was to be located at the mouth of the Chicago River in Streeterville. At 2,000 feet in height, it would have been the tallest building in the United States and the third-tallest building in the world (soon to be fourth with the incoming completion of Merdeka 118 in Kuala Lumpur).
Steel has officially reached its full height for a six-story condominium building known as “Madison + Carpenter,” located at 6 N Carpenter Street in West Loop.
