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.
Updated details have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 1300 W Lake Street in the West Loop. Located on the northwest corner with W Lake Street and replacing an existing two-story commercial building, plans for the nearly block-long structure were revealed in March with the Committee on Design reviewing its plans soon thereafter. Now developer Loukas Development has applied for rezoning for the upcoming bKL Architecture-designed project.
Final exterior construction can be seen at the site of the mixed-use 1606 S Ashland Avenue in Pilsen, where the developer 1600 Pilsen LLC has built 24 new rental units and 4,675 square feet of retail. The four-story, roughly 50,000-square-foot structure will replace a former masonry low-rise building, and is located across the street from the high-profile residential conversion of 1600 S Laflin Street, which was recently approved by city council.
