The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has approved preliminary landmark status for the Ludlow Typograph Building at 2032 N Clybourn Avenue in Lincoln Park. Located near the Lincoln Yards mega-development, the 1913 building will be rehabilitated into a mixed-use property by developer Annexation LLC, who recently bought the building for $15 million.
Coming in at the 27th spot of Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is 142 W Erie Street (formerly known as Bentham) in River North. Sedgwick Development is behind the planning and design for the boutique 14-story retail and condominium project, whose last reported architectural height was 172 feet.
Coming in at 28th is the first renovation project in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end construction countdown, the 13-story former Bridgeview Bank Building, located at 4753 N Broadway in Uptown. Originally known as the Sheridan Bank and Trust Building, the classically-styled edifice was designed nearly 100 years ago by the Chicago-based Marshall and Fox. Four years after its initial completion in 1924, another four floors (and a mechanical penthouse) were added, bringing the final height to 151 feet.
Structured Development has broken ground on the second phase of its mixed-use The Shops at Big Deahl development at 1450 N Dayton Street in the Near North Side. The four-building project, whose first phase recently delivered a three-story indoor rock climbing gym on the easternmost edge of the site, received zoning approval for the remaining three buildings which will be mostly residential with a small retail space and public park also built in the complex. The second phase includes two shorter residential buildings on the north end of the site fronting W Blackhawk Street.
Claiming the 29th spot in the 2021 Chicago YIMBY year-end countdown is Fulton Street Companies and Intercontinental Real Estate’s 1045 on Fulton development in the West Loop. Under construction, the mixed-use project is located on the corner of W Fulton Street and N Aberdeen Street and comes to us from local design firm Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture. Topping out at a final height of 147 feet, the building will focus on office space with nearby projects quickly leasing out to major companies.
