Foundation work has commenced on a new five-story residential building at 438 W St. James Place in Lincoln Park. Developed by St. James Interest LLC, the project will house four condominium units, each with four bedrooms. Originally planned as a 10-story structure, the design was scaled back in response to community feedback and the limitations posed by the 33-foot-wide site.
Construction is set to commence on the first phase of the mixed-use development at 310 N Peoria Street in Fulton Market. Located on the corner with W Wayman Street, the two-phase proposal was initially approved in 2021 after its announcement the year prior. The project is being led by Fulton Market Hospitality and MRR 310 Peoria LLC, with Hirsch MPG working on its design.
Situated at 679 N Michigan Avenue on the Magnificent Mile, a retail redevelopment project is progressing with its facade work.

There will be a total 74 residential units and 3,900 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.
Facade work has wrapped up for 801 W Belmont Avenue, known as Lakeview Connection, in Lakeview East.
