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 22nd in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is the 16-story Fulton Labs at 400 N Aberdeen Street, located near the northern edge of West Loop’s Fulton Market District. At a height of 242 feet, the nearly completed life and health sciences office building is being developed by Trammell Crow Company in collaboration with Zoë Life Sciences. Having replaced a pair of one- and four-story masonry buildings, the modern new tower is the second installation of the Fulton Labs campus plan, which also includes the nearby 14-story 1375 W Fulton Street that was completed last year.
The City of Chicago and Mayor Lori Lightfoot have announced the 24 recipients of a nearly $1 billion investment in affordable housing, the largest in Chicago history. All together the selected developments will bring 2,428 residential units across 14 neighborhoods in collaboration with Chicago Department of Housing. The winning proposals come from a list of 51 applicants and consist of new construction, preservations, and rehabilitation work.
The recently topped-out 609 W Randolph Street takes the 23rd spot in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown. The 15-story, 211-foot-tall high-rise comes to us from developer Vista Property Group and is designed by Antunovich Associates in the growing West Loop Gate neighborhood. The development which replaced a surface parking lot also included renovations of the existing adjoining five-story brick building built in the 1890’s.
With ground having broken and the tower crane now installed, foundation work can be seen progressing for a new nine-story mixed-use building located at 4611 N Broadway in Uptown. Prior to construction, the site was occupied by a low-rise masonry commercial building, which wrapped up demolition this past spring.
