Construction continues on the mixed-use development at 1954-1956 W North Avenue in the heart of Wicker Park. Located at the heart of the neighborhood on the six-corner intersection with N Damen Avenue, the historical preservation and redevelopment will revitalize the corner structure which has sat vacant for many years now. The team at Ernst Development is working with local architecture firm Hirsch MPG on its design, which aims to bring back some of the building’s original details after buying it in 2021.
A new four-story, mixed-use building is set to rise at 6400 N Wayne Avenue in Rogers Park, with the project receiving a construction permit on May 2nd. The development will feature ground-level retail space and 10 dwelling units on the above floors. The filing owner of the project is Variable Properties LLC – 1355 Series, whose plans will be replacing a parking lot along the cross street of Devon Avenue.
Structural work has passed the seventh floor for the 27-story 868 N Wells Street in Near North Side, replacing a former low-rise brick building that was demolished last year. The developer of this mixed-use high rise is JDL, who has planned for 411 units and 12,000 square feet of retail. This tower is the second addition (after the adjacent 920 N Wells) to their North Union megadevelopment, a sprawling $1.3 billion master plan that will ultimately occupy 2.9 million square feet of space. The larger North Union assemblage will feature skyscrapers measuring up to approximately 700 feet in height while providing a total of 2,656 residences, extensive commercial and retail options, and 100,000 square feet of public areas.

The next round of construction will also be phased out and with structures designed by various firms and plenty of new outdoor space.
