The Committee on Zoning has approved the rezoning for a new mixed-use development at 3401 W Ogden Avenue in North Lawndale. Developer East Lake Management & Development Co. filed to rezone from Planned Development 833 to Residential Planned Development, partnering with local design firm JGMA on the project which will replace an existing parking lot with a small basketball court on the corner with S Homan Avenue.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for a mixed-use affordable housing development at 201 S Kedzie Avenue in East Garfield Park. Developer Preservation of Affordable Housing has partnered with Perkins+Will and Nia Architects to bring the two-building project to life as the winners of the C40 Reinventing Cities competition. The multi-phase development will replace two empty city-owned lots on the intersection with W 5th Avenue, across the street from Marshall Metro High School.
Final touches for both interior and exterior work can be seen at the 2740 North Spaulding Avenue (filed under 2755 N Milwaukee Avenue) in Logan Square. R.P. Fox & Associates is the developer behind the six-story mixed-use building, whose interior programming involves ground-level retail split into five segments, along with 60 apartments on the upper floors. Prior to demolition and subsequent construction, the roughly half-acre property was occupied by a single-story bakery and a parking lot.
This past week, the tower crane has been erected for a new 43-story mixed-use development in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Planned by Related Midwest and dubbed “900 Randolph,” this 495-foot-tall tower will offer a combination of ground-level retail and 300 apartment units on the above floors. While marketing materials both on-site and on the developer’s website have listed 900 W Randolph Street as the address, a tip to YIMBY indicated that the project would eventually be switched back to its official address, 164 N Peoria Street.
Three new winners of the city’s Invest South/West initiative have been announced by the mayor in Humboldt Park and South Shore. The three winners are located at 3601 W Chicago Avenue and 4000 W North Avenue in 2908 E 79th Street in South Shore. All together the three proposals represent a $126 million investment in the neighborhoods aimed at increasing the quality of life, adding equitable affordable housing while joining a list of seven past winners of the two-year-old program that are set to break ground soon.
