Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story frame residential building, located at 218 W 24th Street near the southeast corner of Chinatown. The owner, listed in the permit as Victor Kuo, plans to replace the current structure with a three-story residential building. The not-yet-issued construction permit shows that the building will contain three total units, as well as a basement and three on-grade parking spaces. Neither an architect nor renderings have yet been revealed.
Construction has begun on two residential buildings as part of the larger Southbridge development in the Near South Side near Chinatown. The six-story structures are addressed as 2310 S State Street and 2344 S State Street. The master-planned development will create over 900 affordable housing units to serve the southern side of Chicago, replacing the previous Harold Ickes Homes demolished in 2010. The site has frontage along State Street between W 23rd Street and W 24th Street. The nearest public transportation is the 29 CTA bus line running past the development on State Street with stops at 23rd and 24th Streets. Additionally, the Cermak-McCormick Place CTA station, serviced by the Green Line, is a five-minute walk away.
