The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a large new mixed-use development using various lots in West Town. Spread across a total of five lots predominantly centered around the intersection of W Grand Avenue and N Union Avenue, the project looks to feed off of the upcoming demand created by the nearby casino as well as the growing West Loop neighborhood within walking distance. The multi-phase proposal is being led by Fulton Market stalwart Shapack Partners which partnered with local firm Eckenhoff Saunders and New York-based ODA, known for their deconstructed style.
Updated plans have been revealed for a residential development at 3710 N Kenmore Avenue in Wrigleyville. Located just north of the intersection with W Waveland Avenue behind some of the famed Wrigley Rooftops, the new construction will replace an existing two-story house in the popular area. Local developer Aaron Friedman, who owns multiple properties nearby, is behind the project. At the moment an architect has not been revealed.
A new permit was issued for the construction of a residential development at 1920 N Howe Street in Lincoln Park. Located just south of the intersection with W Armitage Avenue, the site is within walking distance to Oz Park and Steppenwolf Theater as well as plenty of shopping and dining. The property is being developed by a private owner with McCormack Sean Baccus serving as the architect on record.
Now that the slanted cantilever section above the podium is complete, structural work has begun on the main tower component for the 73-story 1000M residential building at 1000 S Michigan Avenue in South Loop. The developer team of JK Equities, Time Equities, and Oak Capitals have planned for 738 rental units in this most recent building iteration. As Chicago’s second tallest active construction project (behind the 850-foot-tall Salesforce Tower), the skyscraper will stand 788 feet upon completion.
New permits have been approved for a mixed-use development at 1948 N Halsted Street in Ranch Triangle. Located just south of the intersection with W Armitage Avenue, adjacent to Summer House Santa Monica, the new structure will replace a one-story commercial building and its adjoining parking lot. Developer Mike Krueger introduced the proposal last year which is designed by local firm SPACE Architects + Planners.
