The Chicago City Council has approved the full landmark designation for The Warehouse at 204-208 S Jefferson Street in West Loop Gate. Located near the intersection with W Adams Street, the small building recently received its final landmark recommendation from the Commission on Chicago Landmarks earlier this month after a multi-week battle supported by locals. With its full landmark status granted, the structure is now protected from demolition and will eventually receive a plaque outside.

The Chicago City Council has approved two mixed-use developments at 1235 N Ashland Avenue and 1301 N Ashland Avenue in Wicker Park. Located on two separate lots just north of the intersection with N Milwaukee Avenue and across the street from Wicker Park Commons, both of the proposals will replace five-existing buildings in total dating back to the late 1800s. Grand Properties Acquisitions, LLC is behind both with local firm Hanna Architects working on their design.
The Chicago City Council has approved the residential development at 330 W Chestnut Street in the Near North Side.

Now developers Draper & Kramer and BlitzLake Partners have received the last green light needed for the FitzGerald Associates-designed structure.

Now after receiving its approval from the Plan Commission and comments from the Committee on Design, developers Azur Holdings, and Golub & Company have cleared some of the last hurdles towards construction for the SCB-designed project.
