Final facade touches have wrapped up for a new five-story mixed-use building at 1020 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market. Within the he developer, L3 Capital, is ground-floor retail and Class A office space above, as well as a 2,500-square-foot rooftop deck.
Now at the 20th floor mark, 225 N Elizabeth Street is steadily approaching its final height of 28 stories in the Fulton Market District. This mixed-use project is already making a significant impact on the cityscape as one of the pioneering new towers in the area. It is part of a transformative wave that will turn the low-rise industrial meatpacking district into a mixed-use urban center with a density comparable to that of Streeterville. The project, a collaboration between Sterling Bay and Ascentris, is taking shape on the site of a former parking lot at the intersection of Fulton Street and Elizabeth Street.
The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 3831 W Chicago Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located east of the intersection with N Pulaski Road near Orr Park, the upcoming project will replace a combination of empty lots and one-story commercial structures owned by the city and developer. 548 Capital is behind the proposal being designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative, both of which have past experience with affordable housing and working with the city.
Since YIMBY’s last update on the project, construction has completed for a five-story mixed-use building at 2709 W Division Street in Humboldt Park. Planned by Brinshore Development and the Puerto Rican Cultural Center, the structure has yielded a total of 24 affordable units atop a theater and ground-level retail. The new structure is set to replace four low-rise buildings demolished in 2021.

Joining 111 W Monroe Street, 135 S LaSalle Street, and 208 S LaSalle Street could be the following two revised proposals:
