A new residential development at 8535 W Higgins Road has applied for zoning approval in order to proceed towards construction. Located within a larger complex near O’Hare Airport adjacent to existing office buildings and a Marriott hotel, developer GlenStar partnered with FitzGerald Associates on the seven-story, W-shaped project.
The Chicago Department of Aviation has officially opened the new Airport Transit System (ATS) at O’Hare International Airport. The opening marks the end of a multi-year process of construction, acquisitions, and testing performed with contractor Parsons Construction Group. Work originally began in 2018 and has since faced various delays with this opening being over a year after its originally scheduled date. Now open from 10:30am to 8:30pm, busses will continue to run 24/7 to facilitate the integration as the hours expand to full-time operations in early 2022.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a residential development at 8535 W Higgins Road near O’Hare Airport. Bordered by W Higgins Road to the north and a Marriott Hotel to the south, the development will be a two-minute drive from the on ramp to I-90 and a 10-minute drive from O’hare. Developer GlenStar has been working with architect FitzGerald Associates to deliver 297 residential units in a multi-wing building.
