Initial plans have been revealed for the residential conversion of the existing commercial building at 153 W Ohio Street in River North. Located just west of the intersection with N LaSalle Street and across the street from the famed Ohio House Hotel, the project comes at a time where residential conversions are ramping up in the city including just down LaSalle Street. Local developer Senco Properties is leading the way with Chicago-based FitzGerald Associates working on the design.
The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use redevelopment of 2222 S Michigan Avenue in the Motor Row District. Located just south of the intersection with E Cermak Road, the development will renovate an existing slim building that runs the full-length of the block to S Wabash Avenue. The team behind the work is developer Hudson Michigan Avenue LLC who has tapped local design firm FitzGerald and RTM Engineering Consultants on the project which will be called Hudson Motor Row.
Updated plans have been revealed for the small mixed-use development at 1912 W Division Street in Wicker Park. Located west of the intersection with N Damen Avenue the proposed structure will replace an empty lot normally used as a parking lot by the surrounding businesses. Developer 1912 Division, who is a part of Elk Enterprises, is working with local architecture firm FitzGerald Associates on its design which was revealed earlier this year.
Number 13 in YIMBY’s year-end countdown is the 27-story mixed-use tower at 1475 N Kingsbury Street, part of Structured Development’s Shops at Big Deahl in Near North Side. At 299 feet in height, the high rise will house a combination of ground-level retail and a total of 327 apartment units.
Chicago’s 22nd tallest development in this year’s countdown is the 18-story 633 S LaSalle Street in Printers Row. Replacing a surface parking lot across the street from the rails of LaSalle Street station, the building will be located one block west from 2020’s 26th tallest entry, the Imprint apartment tower. Led by London-based developer The Collective, the co-living project was designed by local-firm Fitzgerald Associates along with Berkelhamer Architects and began excavation earlier this summer. As of now, the site is awaiting additional foundation work.
