Core construction has nearly reached its full height for the seven-story mixed-use development at 949 W Dakin Street, located near the northeast corner of Lake View. The developer Draper and Kramer has planned 13,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, with 120 residential units above.
Construction permits have issued for a two-story mixed-use building at 1347 W 47th Street, located in the Back of The Yards neighborhood. The owner, filed under Maurizio Ursetta, is planning two commercial spaces on the ground floor, with two residential units above. Additional features will include an integrated four-car garage and a masonry trash enclosure. The property had previously been reclassified from an M1-2 zoning designation, allowing for industrial lots only to a C1-2 designation, allowing for retail with apartments above.
Exterior cladding is climbing the final floors of Onni Group‘s Old Town Park Phase Three, located at 228 W Hill Street in Near North Side. With a pinnacle of 447 feet, the mixed-use tower ranks as the 20th tallest recent development in Chicago.
Taking the 24th spot in YIMBY’s countdown of Chicago’s tallest developments, the approved tower at 344 N Canal Street will rise 375 feet above its site in the Fulton River District. The project is located on the west side of N Canal Street between W Kinzie Street and W Fulton Street. The lot is an irregular shape with spurs that extend to N Clinton Street, around a railroad abutment. The new development will replace the existing Cassidy Tire building.
