Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 3831 W Chicago Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located on the corner with N Avers Avenue, the new construction will replace a series of city-owned empty lots and three empty one-story masonry clad industrial buildings the developer now owns. The project is being led by 548 Development, who has worked on various Invest South/West proposals, with local firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative working on its modern design.

Earlier this month, YIMBY reported on the Committee on Design’s review of 170 N Green Street, where CRG (of St. Louis-based Clayco) and Shapack Partners have planned a massive mixed-use development. The Fulton Market site was previously owned by Bridgford Foods, whose former packaging facility is currently undergoing full demolition. Clayco purchased the property for $60 million in 2020, prior to which Bridgford Foods had considered its own plans for a 17-story building to occupy the site.
Updated plans have been reviewed by the Committee on Design for the mixed-use development at 170 N Green Street in the West Loop. The project has received a few design updates with new details being presented to a committee packed with famed local designers. Developer Shapack Partners is no stranger to the area, having developed 167 N Green Street directly east of the site and is partnering with the Lamar Johnson Collaborative on the new multi-tower structure.
The City of Chicago and Mayor Lori Lightfoot have announced the winner of the latest Invest South/West RFP at 4300 W Roosevelt Road in North Lawndale. The currently empty site is roughly bounded by W Roosevelt Road to the south, S Kostner Avenue to the west, W 5th Avenue to the north, and S Kildare Avenue to the east. The winning proposal comes to us from developer partners 548 Developments and Related Midwest who are working with Lamar Johnson Collaborative, Ware Malcomb, and Site Design Group on the project’s design.
Updated details has been released for a mixed-use development at 170 N Green Street in the West Loop. Located just north of W Randolph Street, the multi-structure project will replace the old Bridgford Foods plant which was vacated in 2020 and is currently being demolished. The joint venture developers of St. Louis-based Clayco’s real estate division CRG and West Loop native Shapack Partners, have tapped the Chicago-based architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative on the new design.
