Updated details have been revealed for the residential redevelopment of the former Immaculata High School at 640 W Irving Park Road in Uptown. Located just west of N DuSable Lake Shore Drive near the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, the existing buildings are currently operated by the American Islamic College (AIC) who will have to vacate the campus. Developers KGiles LLC and CA Ventures are working with local firm Perkins Eastman and Level Architecture on the design of the new mid-rise.
Structural work has begun to fill out the second floor of a new five-story development at 4600 N Kenmore Avenue in Uptown. Developed by Cedar St. Companies, this new edifice will accommodate 2,500 square feet of ground-level commercial space, alongside 62 rental apartment dwellings. Attached directly to the west will be a two-story former bank building undergoing renovation as part of the development. Upon completion, the new programming at this separate 1050 W Wilson Avenue address will be a relocated performing venue for Double Door Music. As for the under construction east parcel, that site was formerly home to a surface parking lot.
Since September’s update, structural work has risen by a floor for a new mid-rise building at 4600 N Kenmore Avenue in Uptown. The five-story building has been planned by Cedar St. Companies, whose planned programming will come with 2,500 square feet of ground-level retail and 62 rental units on the upper four floors. The development also encompasses a former bank building located adjacently west. This two-story masonry structure resides under the separate address of 1050 W Wilson Avenue, and will serve as a new performance venue for Double Door Music.
Coming in at 28th is the first renovation project in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end construction countdown, the 13-story former Bridgeview Bank Building, located at 4753 N Broadway in Uptown. Originally known as the Sheridan Bank and Trust Building, the classically-styled edifice was designed nearly 100 years ago by the Chicago-based Marshall and Fox. Four years after its initial completion in 1924, another four floors (and a mechanical penthouse) were added, bringing the final height to 151 feet.
Interior walls can now be seen rising above grade for 4600 N Kenmore Avenue, a five-story mixed-use building rising at the corner of Kenmore & Wilson in Uptown. The developer Cedar St. Companies has planned for 2,500 square feet of retail at the ground-level and 62 apartments on the upper floors. These units will range in size between studios and two-bedroom layouts, with select residences accommodated by private terrace space. Residents will have access to a top-level indoor lounge and connected outdoor terrace space.
