Climbing into the 24th spot of Chicago YIMBY’s countdown is the mixed-use development at 630 S Wabash Avenue in the South Loop. Revealed in 2021, the tower replaces a vacant lot sandwiched between two low-rise buildings and is rising adjacent to 30 E Balbo Drive, which was completed a few years back on the nearby intersection. Development partners Melrose Ascension Capital and DAC Developments are working with local architects Antunovich Associates on its design, adding to the growing South Loop skyline.
Rising into the 26th place on our year-end countdown is the mixed-use development at 210 N Aberdeen Street in the West Loop. Located not too far from yesterday’s entry of Embry, the multi-mass project is near the intersection with W Fulton Street. The team at LG Development Group worked with local architecture firm NORR on its design with Power Construction executing on the plans.
Having now surpassed the 12th floor, the condo development dubbed “Embry” has claimed the 27th spot in our year-end construction countdown. This 15-story, 207-foot-tall residential project at 21 N May Street has been planned by Sulo Development and will contain 58 total residences. Floor plans range from two- to four-bedroom units, with floor space occupying between 1,828 and 5,187 square feet.
Coming in at a height of 195 feet, construction is nearing completion for 1044 W Van Buren Street in West Loop, marking the 28th spot in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown. The 18-story apartment building is being developed by Tandem and will house a total of 196 for-rent units.
A new construction permit has been issued for the first phase of a mixed-use development at 3437 W Flournoy Street in Homan Square. Dubbed the Homan Square Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) project, the three-site proposal is being built in multiple phases with the lots centering around S Homan Avenue just south of the highway. Hoping to tackle various housing issues, the locally-led Foundation for Homan Square is envisioning the project with popular design firm JGMA working on the buildings.
