Updated plans have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 2033 N Kingsbury Avenue in Lincoln Park. Located near the intersection with N Clybourn Avenue and fronting the northern end of the Lincoln Yards megadevelopment, plans for the project were originally revealed last year and have received a substantial redesign. Also being led by Sterling Bay, the team behind Lincoln Yards brought in local firm Pappageorge Haymes to work on its design which will help kickstart some large changes in the area.
A demolition permit has been issued for the site of 910 N Ashland Avenue in West Town. This permit allows the removal of a two-story masonry mixed-use building that formerly stood on the 2,775-square-foot lot. The property, last purchased on January 14, 1981, for $16,000, is owned by Khaled Suleiman.
Units are now available for lease at The Rhône, a 13-story mixed-use high-rise with 31 corner units and ground-level retail. Situated at 144 W Erie Street near the center of River North, the property was formerly the site of an auto body shop, and much like other recent projects, the development has converted from condominiums to apartments to adapt to shifts in market demand.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 6206 S Racine Avenue in West Englewood. Located on the intersection with W 62nd Street, the proposal is a redevelopment of a vacant school building which housed Woods Elementary that closed in 2013. Now a development team called ‘Go Green’ made up of Gorman & Company LLC, the Inner-City Muslim Action Network, Resident Association of Greater Englewood, Team Englewood, and E.G. Woode is leading the charge with Nia Architects on the design.
Another design iteration has been revealed for 4640 N Western Avenue in Lincoln Square. Situated directly south of the Western station serviced by the Brown Line, the plans are being developed by Macon Construction, while Hirsch MPG is the project architect. The mixed-use proposal highlights a new six-story building that will incorporate an adjacent four-story structure. The project plans to provide a total of 74 apartment units and ground-floor retail space.
