Beginning our year-end countdown of Chicago’s tallest construction projects, a six-story building is rising at 4715 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. Co-developed by The Community Builders and The Boar Company, this mixed-use structure will replace a former parking lot, offering 4,995 square feet of ground-level retail and 65 affordable housing units.
Structural work is past the fourth floor at 1257 W Roosevelt Road in Little Italy, a project spearheaded by Related Midwest in collaboration with the Chicago Housing Authority. This six-story, mixed-use building is part of the larger Roosevelt Square Phase 3B development, which aims to introduce a variety of mixed-income housing options, retail spaces, and the new National Museum of Public Housing. Overall, Roosevelt Square will feature 2,441 housing units, encompassing both multifamily and single-family structures.
Plans have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 3305 W Division Street in Humboldt Park. Located on the southwest corner with N Spaulding Avenue, the new project will replace a two-story structure that most recently held a Spanish church with a small parking lot. The proposal is being led by LUCHA and Full Circle Communities, with local architecture firm DesignBridge working on its design.
Construction at 1257 W Roosevelt Road in Little Italy has now reached its fourth floor, with Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority overseeing the development. The six-story mixed-use structure is part of the broader Roosevelt Square Phase 3B project, which includes three other buildings. This project offers a combination of homes, shops, and the soon-to-open National Museum of Public Housing. Once finished, Roosevelt Square will have 2,441 housing units for both single and multi-family living.
The Chicago City Council has approved the affordable housing development at 2136 S Ashland Avenue in the Lower West Side. Sitting north of the intersection with W Cermak Road across the street from Benito Juarez High School, the proposal will replace a long-time vacant lot. ‘Casa Yucatan’ is being developed by The Resurrection Project with local-architecture firm DesignBridge providing the design.
