Steel beam installation is wrapping up for a three-story commercial building at 151 N Michigan Avenue in New Eastside. This mixed-use development will be a direct expansion of the Millennium Park Plaza apartment building located adjacently north. The 74-foot-tall structure, developed by BJB Partners, will activate a previously under-utilized corner at Michigan & Randolph that was a single-story restaurant venue.

The city has broken ground on a new business development center at 5500 W Madison Avenue in Austin. Located on the northeast corner with N Central Avenue just north of Columbus Park, the new center will redevelop the now vacant Emmet Elementary School. The Invest South/West project is being developed by the team made up of Austin Coming Together, Jane Addams Resource Corp, and Westside Health Authority who are working with Lamar Johnson Collaborative on its design.
The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 3831 W Chicago Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located east of the intersection with N Pulaski Road near Orr Park, the upcoming project will replace a combination of empty lots and one-story commercial structures owned by the city and developer. 548 Capital is behind the proposal being designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative, both of which have past experience with affordable housing and working with the city.
Structural work is well underway, with the elevator core reaching its full height at the new commercial development at 151 N Michigan Avenue in New Eastside.

The ground floor is set to include 5,300 square feet of retail space, divided into two or three commercial units based on demand.
