Exterior work is rapidly underway on the recently topped-out 17-story 808 N Wells Street, known as AMLI 808, in Near North Side. Developed by AMLI, the mixed-use project will include retail space at the ground level and 318 residences above, according to most recent construction permits issued this past spring. The most recent zoning amendment also shows that the tower will stand 225 feet in height. AMLI has not yet listed pricing and availability.
Construction has begun on Optima Lakeview, a mixed-use development at 3460 N Broadway in Lake View. Located on the corner of N Broadway and W Cornelia Avenue, the project will replace an old Treasure Island grocery store and parking lot. The nearest public transportation is the 36 CTA bus route, accessed at the Broadway and Cornelia stop, on the corner of the site. The Addison CTA station, serviced by the Red Line, is a ten-minute walk away. Optima Inc is the developer-architect in charge of the design and development of the building.
