Initial building permits have been issued for the new wellness center at 2933 W Division Street in Humboldt Park. Located on the southwest corner with N Richmond Street, the project was proposed early last year and moved its way through the Plan Commission and City Council prior to securing the current foundation permits. Developer Humboldt Park Health will replace an empty lot and a single two-flat building with a new angular structure designed by local architecture firm JGMA.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 4000 W North Avenue in Humboldt Park. Dubbed Team Pioneros, the project will restore the existing Pioneer Bank building on the corner with N Pulaski Road and construct a new structure behind it. The colorful proposal is also a winner of the city’s Invest South/West initiative and is being led by Park Row Development as well as local architecture firm JGMA, who will eventually call the property home when the firm moves its current offices.
A proposal was submitted for review on Wednesday to the Chicago City Council to designate the historic Pioneer Arcade in Humboldt Park as a protected landmark. The three-story building is located at 1535-45 N Pulaski Road and was designed by Danish-born Chicago architect Jens Jensen. Pioneer Arcade was originally a recreation center and featured 20 bowling lanes, a billiard room with 35 tables, and retail spaces. The establishment acted as a social site for the neighborhood. The building has a distinctive Spanish Baroque Revival style and an ornate terra cotta facade.
A permit was issued on Thursday for a new two-story residential building at 1007 N Hamlin Avenue in Humboldt Park. The owner is listed as GT Alternatives LLC. The new construction plans for the project include two units, a basement level, a rear wooden deck, a detached two-vehicle garage, and one additional outdoor parking space. The project will be replacing a vacant lot.
Full permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 1203 N California Avenue in Humboldt Park. We previously reported on the project which is led by locally-based Hispanic Housing Development Corporation with Pappageorge Haymes Partners on design.
