Final exterior work is now underway for the 33-story residential tower at 354 N Union Avenue in Fulton River District. The glassy 410-foot-tall edifice is being developed by Onni, and will ultimately yield 373 new apartment residences. These units range in size from 400-square-foot studios up to 1,600-square-foot penthouses.
Full building permits have been issued for the remaining half of the mixed-use development at 2653 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park. The new project will redevelop the existing Covent Hotel and build a new addition on its surface parking lot at 537 W Drummond Place which received the approval. Local developer Drummond Development has partnered with architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch on the design and restoration while working with the National Historic Preservation Foundation (NHP) on the latter.
Curtain wall glazing has begun installation for the 73-story 1000M apartment tower at 1000 S Michigan Avenue in South Loop. Developer trio JK Equities, Time Equities, and Oak Capitals have planned for a total of 738 rental units in this most recent iteration, which will stand 788 feet upon its completion.
Initial permits have been approved for a residential development at 4600 N Marine Drive in Uptown. Located on the intersection with W Wilson Avenue in front of Montrose Beach, the project replaces a surface parking lot previously owned by Weiss Memorial Hospital. Developer Lincoln Property Company is behind the proposal along with architecture firm Valerio Dewalt Train on the design.
Work is concluding on a new residential redevelopment at 1444 W Augusta Boulevard in Noble Square. Located west of the intersection with N Noble Street near the exit of the Kennedy Expressway, the project consisted of redeveloping the existing Peabody School building which closed under the Rahm years. Developer Svigos Asset Management is behind the work at the property as well as the conversion of the Motley School down the street, both of which required extensive restoration work and became Chicago landmarks during the process.
