Brickwork and metal paneling can now be seen undergoing installation along the two-building development known as Hugo in River North. Developer LG Group has planned for a total of 227 for-rent apartments across nearly 150,000 square feet of total floor area. Both nine stories, the larger edifice at 751 N Hudson Avenue will yield 134 new units while 411 W Chicago Avenue will yield 93 residences. The mixed-use project will also provide approximately 19,000 square feet of ground-level retail space. The two structures are almost adjacent save for an existing two-story building that lies between them.
Glass and metal installation is now wrapping up for the 21-story 920 N Wells Street in Near North Side. Developed by JDL as part of the massive North Union megadevelopment, this primarily residential mixed-use building is the first step in what will be a $1.3 billion master plan covering several blocks of land previously owned by the Moody Bible Institute.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development dubbed Galleria 89 at 8840 S Commercial Avenue in South Chicago. Located on the northwest corner with E 89th Street, the project is one of the winners of the 2021 Invest South/West requests for proposals and will preserve one of the existing structures on site. Developer 548 Capital is leading the team with Rivetna Architecture and Farr Associates both working on its design.
Structural work has reached the second level for a new 21-story mixed-use building known as “Coppia,” located at 1101 W Van Buren Street. Developed by Pizzuti Development, this latest West Loop project will stand between two existing apartment buildings, replacing a previously vacant site. The new addition to the area will yield 298 apartment units and contain ground-floor retail.
The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 1234 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market. Located on the intersection with N Elizabeth Street the building replaces a handful of low-slung commercial structures after having originally been proposed as a hotel a few years back. Now after receiving its approval from the Plan Commission and comments from the Committee on Design, developers Azur Holdings, and Golub & Company have cleared some of the last hurdles towards construction for the SCB-designed project.
