Beginning our year-end countdown of Chicago’s tallest construction projects, a six-story building is rising at 4715 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. Developed by The Community Builders, this mixed-use structure will replace a former parking lot, offering 5,500 square feet of ground-level retail and 63 affordable housing units.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 1565 N Clybourn Avenue in Near North Side. Sitting on the northeastern corner of the intersection with N Halsted Street, the proposal was announced in a recent newsletter from second ward alderman Brian Hopkins. The project is being developed by New York-based The Georgetown Company, though an architect is currently unknown.
Plans have been approved for the first phase of Thrive Exchange at 7901 S Exchange Avenue in South Shore. Sitting right on the intersection with E 79th Street, the project will replace a pair of existing buildings next to the Cheltenham/79th Street Metra station. The proposal was approved by the Chicago Plan Commission, led by developer DL3 Realty and designed by local-firms KOO Architects and Site Design Group.
Updated plans for the mixed-use development at 3950 N Damen Avenue and 3959 N Lincoln Avenue in North Center. Located on the six-corner intersection with W Irving Park Road, the two-building proposal will replace a parking lot and drive-thru bank west of Damen and redevelop the existing bank structure on Lincoln. Developers CRG and Ravine Park Partners are working with local architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative on the new design.
Further details have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 700 W Chicago Avenue in River West. The large project sits to the east of the intersection with N Halsted Street and will replace part of the Chicago Tribune facility, directly across the street from the upcoming permanent casino. The proposal is being led by Canadian-based developer Onni Group who is working with Goettsch Partners on its design.
