Significant construction progress can be seen for Structured Development‘s Shops at Big Deahl masterplan, situated on an elbow-shaped property in Near North Side’s Clybourn Corridor area. This $250 million, four-building development is already a quarter complete, having completed three-story climbing gym called Movement Lincoln Park in 2021. With Power Construction as the general contractor, the remaining three buildings are now rising in tandem, and will serve as a new mixed-use hub for the primarily retail and residential neighborhood. As part of the developer’s plans for the site, there will also be a small urban park at the south end with greenery, terraces, and seating areas.

Structured Development has received its last remaining foundation permit for its Shops at Big Deahl masterplan. Under the address 1475 N Kingsbury Street, the greenlit 27-story tower will serve as the fourth and final addition to the $250 million scheme, occupying a three-acre parcel in Near North Side‘s Clybourn Avenue corridor.
This week, foundation permits were issued for an 18-story co-living development at 633 S LaSalle Street in South Loop‘s Printer’s Row District. The Collective, a London-based developer, is behind the 162,000-square-foot project, which will house 117 apartments with a total of 381 beds.
Exterior work is advancing closer to completion for a new eight-story building at 1140 W Erie Street in West Town. Known as Inspire West Town, this mixed-use development by Bond Companies is set to yield both ground-level commercial space and 113 rental units. There will be an affordable component to this project, with six of the on-site residences qualifying as affordable, and an additional 17 units subsidized off site. Planned layouts will fall between one- and three-bedrooms, offering attached private balconies for select units.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a residential development at 8535 W Higgins Road near O’Hare Airport. Bordered by W Higgins Road to the north and a Marriott Hotel to the south, the development will be a two-minute drive from the on ramp to I-90 and a 10-minute drive from O’hare. Developer GlenStar has been working with architect FitzGerald Associates to deliver 297 residential units in a multi-wing building.
