An opening date has been announced for the next phase of the Salt Shed entertainment complex at 1357 N Elston Avenue in West Town. Located on the intersection with N Magnolia Avenue along the north branch of the Chicago River, the multi-building project partially opened earlier this year with its outdoor venue holding its first concert to much fanfare. Developers R2 Companies, Blue Star Properties, and Skydeck have been working with locally-based architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative on its design.
Initial details have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 11420 S Halsted Street in Morgan Park. Located on the easternmost end of the neighborhood on the intersection with W 115th Street, the multi-phase proposal aims to replace an abandoned ex-Jewel Osco store and its large adjacent parking lot. Dubbed Morgan Park Commons, the team at Far South Side Development Corporation is developing the project and working with local firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative who has recent experience in affordable housing and residential work.
The Chicago Community Development Commission has approved initial funding for the mixed-use development at 3831 W Chicago Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located just east of the intersection with N Pulaski Road, the new structure will replace an empty lot and three masonry industrial buildings that currently occupy the space. Led by 548 Development who is working on similar projects through the Invest South/West initiative, the proposal is being designed by local firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative with the community in mind.
The Chicago City Council has approved a new mixed-use medical facility at 4800 S Cottage Grove Avenue in Grand Boulevard. Located on the corner with E 48th Street, the new structure replaces a vacant lot and brings a much needed service to an area which has suffered from years of disinvestment in public health. The project is being developed by Northwestern Medicine with local firms Lamar Johnson Collaborative and Brook Architecture working on its design.
