New construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building located at 1524 N Mohawk Street in Lincoln Park. The owner is listed as Roscore Builders LLC and plans indicate that there will be three total dwelling units. The parcel address is behind 1522 N Mohawk Street and the neighboring building and is addressed as 1526-1528 N Mohawk Street. Demolition permits were issued to 1522 N Mohawk Street earlier this month.
After six years of approvals and planning, construction is set to begin on the mixed-use Covent Hotel redevelopment this September. Planned by NHP Foundation, who had purchased the property in 2016, in partnership with Drummond Development, the project at 2653 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park will reuse the existing Covent Hotel building while adding a new seven-story edifice to the parking lot behind the existing building. Overseen by Weese Langley Weese Architects, the historic Covent Hotel is being renovated from 64 SRO units into 30 affordable studio apartments. The street-facing ground level will also provide 4,700 square feet of retail space along Clark Street.
Demolition has completed at 513 W Fullerton Avenue in Lincoln Park, the former site of the Cenacle Retreat & Conference Center. Originally developed in 1967, the property was occupied by multiple masonry structures rising seven stories high. While deemed architecturally significant with their modernist designs by Charles Pope, the structures received demolition approval from Commission on Chicago Landmarks anyway. Following the approval, a single wrecking permit was issued this past January. The former owners, The Cenacle Sisters, have long used the complex as a retreat to care for their aging nun population, and chose to sell the property to help fund care for their members.
Structural steel has reached its pinnacle for the frontmost section of “The Porter,” a five-story mixed-use building rising at 2411 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. Having replaced a privately-owned park at the three-way intersection of Lincoln Avenue, Halsted Street, and Fullerton Avenue, the scheme by Mike Breheny involves 3,700 square feet of retail, a 1,700 square-foot covered patio, and 36 for-rent apartments above.
Permits were issued on Monday to construct a new three-story residential building located at 2653 N Orchard Street in Lincoln Park. Owenbrin LLC has been listed as the permit owner. The scope of work includes three total units and a three-car garage with a roof deck. Demolition permits were issued for this property site last summer.
