Permits have been issued for a renovation project at 1550 N Lake Shore Drive in Gold Coast. The project involves replacing both the shared and private rooftop decks of the 33-story, 200-unit residential building. These renovations are significant for enhancing the outdoor spaces of the building, offering residents improved amenities and recreational areas. The building is classified under Occupancy Type R-2 and Type 1A construction, with no changes planned for its occupancy or egress.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a new mixed-use building at 1043 N Rush Street in the Near North Side. Located just north of the intersection with E Oak Street, across the street from the wedge-shaped Mariano pocket park, the project replaces a similar existing structure holding the famed Carmine’s restaurant. Attempting to sell the property since 2015, developer L3 Properties recently bought it with plans to increase the overall active square footage on the site.
Updated plans were presented to the Committee on Design for a residential development at 12 W Maple Street in the Gold Coast neighborhood. Located just west of the intersection with N State Street and on the same block of the upcoming 1130 N State Street tower, the project looks to bring designer residences to the area. New developers Fern Hill, who is behind the upcoming Old Town redevelopment, and Calmwater Capital are working with architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative on the design of the updated tower.
At the intersection of State Parkway and Division Street, final touches can be seen for the 12-story mixed-use building known as Gild. Developed by Newcastle Limited, this Gold Coast addition at 1210 N State Parkway features 18,000 square feet of retail and 89 apartments.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a new retail building at 939 N Rush Street in the Gold Coast. Located near the intersection with E Oak Street, one of the premier retail corridors in the city, the proposal would replace an existing three-story structure built in 1957 that was most recently occupied by Italian fashion brand Brunello Cucinelli and has since moved next door. Developer JMB Realty LLC is working with local design firm Stephen Rankin & Associates on the new storefront.
