A construction permit has been issued for a new residential building located at 1842 W Iowa Street in West Town’s East Village. The project will feature a three-story building housing two dwelling units with a basement. Additional features of the design include a rear deck with stairs accessible from the 1st and 2nd stories, a rear stair leading to the 3rd story, a rooftop deck, a trellis, and a rooftop stair enclosure. This structure will replace a three-story frame residence.
Plans have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 1610 N LaSalle Drive in Old Town. Located on the intersection with W North Avenue, the multi-site project was originally announced in 2021 centered around the Moody Church Auditorium. Chicago-based developer Fern Hill is behind the proposal, however it will appear the team from David Adjaye is no longer involved in the design with GREC Architects taking over.
Structural work has completed for the first five floors of 633 S LaSalle Street in South Loop. Led by The Collective, this 18-floor residential structure is being constructed on land previously occupied by a surface parking lot. The building is designed for co-living, with 117 apartment suites that can house up to 381 residents.
