Initial permits have been approved for the mixed-use development at 1203 N California Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located on the northeast corner with W Division Street, the upcoming structure received foundation permits and will replace a vacant lot across the street from the neighborhood’s namesake park. The team at the locally based Hispanic Housing Development Corporation are leading the project with Chicago-based Pappageorge Haymes Partners working on its design.

A 95-foot-tall high rise is coming to West Town, with City Council approving plans this week for a new affordable housing development at 1203 N California Avenue. Led by Hispanic Housing Development Corporation, the nine-story building at the southeast corner of Humboldt Park will contain 2,500 square feet of retail topped by 64 affordable rental dwellings. The site, currently an empty lot, originally had plans submitted under the Illinois Housing Development Authority.
