A renovation permit has been granted for a residential building at 6055 S Peoria Street in Englewood. The project, owned by 6055 S. Peoria LLC, will involve the repair and renovation of an existing three-story, 12-unit structure.
A potential groundbreaking date has been announced for the upcoming Englewood Nature Trail in Englewood. Stretching roughly from S Damen Avenue in the west to S Halsted Street in the east, the potential trail will replace the long-abandoned Norfolk Southern Railway lines which the city purchased in 2014. Now the city itself along with Grow Greater Englewood have revealed their initial design studies by Gensler after receiving $6 million last year to kick off efforts.
Initial renderings have been revealed for the commercial development at 1158 W 59th Street in Englewood. Located on the intersection with S Racine Avenue just south of the future Englewood Nature Trail, the new project will rehab the existing multi-story building on the site which once housed neighborhood staple Leon’s Bar-B-Q. Now the Resident Association of Greater Englewood (RAGE) plans to bring back dining to the location with a new design by local firm QORF Studios.
The first renovation permit has been issued for the old Engine Company 84, Truck 51 firehouse at 6204 S Green Street in Englewood. The rehabilitation is the first phase of a 4.28-acre culinary hub and event center oriented around healthy living, led by developer Englewood Connect LLC and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
Initial construction permits have been approved for the first phase of the mixed-use Thrive Englewood development at 914 W 63rd Street in Englewood. Located on the corner with S Halsted Parkway near Kennedy-King College, the multi-phase project received City Council approval late last year and is now one step closer to breaking ground. Developer DL3 Realty has worked on similar projects nearby including the recently announced Washington Park National Bank building, and is working with Perkins + Will on Thrive’s design.
