Core construction has nearly reached its full height for the seven-story mixed-use development at 949 W Dakin Street, located near the northeast corner of Lake View. The developer Draper and Kramer has planned 13,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, with 120 residential units above.
Construction permits have issued for a two-story mixed-use building at 1347 W 47th Street, located in the Back of The Yards neighborhood. The owner, filed under Maurizio Ursetta, is planning two commercial spaces on the ground floor, with two residential units above. Additional features will include an integrated four-car garage and a masonry trash enclosure. The property had previously been reclassified from an M1-2 zoning designation, allowing for industrial lots only to a C1-2 designation, allowing for retail with apartments above.
Onni Group‘s 41-story residential tower, known as The Grand, is wrapping up its remaining exterior touches at 369 W Grand Avenue in River North. At 449 feet tall, The Grand ranks 19th in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown for tallest new developments.
Exterior cladding is climbing the final floors of Onni Group‘s Old Town Park Phase Three, located at 228 W Hill Street in Near North Side. With a pinnacle of 447 feet, the mixed-use tower ranks as the 20th tallest recent development in Chicago.
Initial work has commenced for West Loop‘s 932 W Randolph Street, where L3 Capital is planning the renovation of an existing three-story masonry building, as well as a new three-story addition. YIMBY previously reported a zoning approval for the proposal, which included changing the property’s designation from C1-2 to DX-5. Programming will include retail space at ground level, with office space on the two floors above. The Commission on Chicago Landmarks also deemed that the project and its design would not have an adverse affect on the area’s historical context.
