Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story masonry building at 3654-56 W Belmont Avenue in Avondale. Wilmot Construction Inc. is the owner, whose plans involve a four-story mixed-use building with 2,100 square feet of ground-level retail and nine dwellings on the three upper floors. Residences will range from two- to three-bedrooms units, each of which will come with a balcony. Plans also include a rooftop deck and nine parking spaces integrated on the ground floor.
Work has reached full height at 508 E Pershing Road, a four-story mixed-use building that recently topped out in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood. Planned by The Community Builders Inc, the development will house 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail with 53 residential units on the upper floors. Under the Chicago Housing Authority, 36 of these units will be affordable, with the remaining 17 residences as market rate.
Construction is now above street level for Inspire West Town, an eight-story mixed-use development by Bond Companies located at 1140 W Erie Street. The 108-foot-tall West Town development will house ground-level retail and a total of 113 rental units. Six of these units will be affordable, while an additional 17 will be provided off site under the Affordable Requirements Ordinance.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the updated mixed-use development proposal at 1150 W Lake Street in the West Loop. Flanking W Lake Street the project scope includes two properties. The southern property is L-shaped and bound by W Lake Street, N May Street, W Randolph Street, and N Racine Avenue, with two buildings at the corner of W Randolph Street and N Racine Avenue not included in this parcel. The northern lot is bound by W Lake Street, N May Street, N Racine Avenue, and a public alley. Formerly the site of Amylu Foods, the new construction will demolish existing buildings on the southern portion and replace the vacant lot within the northern portion. LG Development Group is the developer behind the proposal.
