Demolition is now complete at 166 N Aberdeen Street in West Loop, clearing the way for a new 20-story mixed-use tower by MCZ Development. Standing 241 feet to its pinnacle, the building will house a collection of retail, dining, and offices on the lower floors, with 236 apartments housed above. The project serves as the second and taller phase of a two-part plan, with the first building at 171 N Aberdeen Street completed in 2018.
Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story masonry building located at 2038 W 18th Street in Lower West Side‘s Heart of Chicago. While it is unclear what the owner PKD Pilsen Enterprises plans to have replace the mixed-use structure, the site’s zoning designation of C1-2 Neighborhood Commercial District would allow for retail at ground level with apartments above. C1-2 also permits a floor area ratio of 2.2, by which any new construction could have the square footage up to 2.2 times that of the site itself.
Demolition permits have been issued for a single-story warehouse/office building and an accompanying single-story guard shack, located at 1241 W Division Street in West Town. Lying just across the river from Goose Island, the masonry and frame structures form part of a larger property that is zoned for PMD-2 (Planned Manufacturing District). The owner Peoples Gas has in turn constructed new business facilities on a separate section of this 15-acre plot.
Two separate demolition permits have been issued for 2235 W Roscoe Street in Roscoe Village, where owner Gino Battaglia is planning to remove a two-story masonry mixed-use building in the front, as well as a single-story masonry coach house in the rear.
Demolition is nearly complete for 800 W Lake Street, site of a new 21-story hotel in the Fulton Market area. In development by North Park Ventures, the building is set to accommodate 476 rooms as well as ground-floor retail.
