The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for a residential development at 526-530 W 41st Street in Canaryville. Located just east of the intersection with S Wallace Street, the three homes will replace a vacant lot, a one-story non-historical home and its adjacent garage. Developer Thomas M Doyle Builders LLC is working with local designer Stern Group Architects on the low-cost builds.
Structural work has topped out for a six-story addition to the Edith Spurlock Apartments complex in Lincoln Park. The new building at 2700 N Sheffield Avenue will sit between the two existing apartment buildings, which are also undergoing their own renovations as part of the project scope. The addition is been co-developed by the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) and Pirhl.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for the mixed-use development at 1353 W Fulton Street in Fulton Market. Located on the corner with N Ada Street, the new high rise replaces an existing industrial building on the quickly-growing corridor that has seen numerous high-profile proposals including a 600-foot-tall tower in the last few months. Developer Shapack Partners has been working with SOM on the design of the structure, which has undergone a handful of updates since we originally covered its announcement late last year.
Demolition work has now begun for the five-story Cassidy Tires building, located at 344 N Canal Street in Fulton River District. The masonry edifice will be replaced by a 33-story mixed-use tower, under development by The Habitat Company and Diversified Real Estate Capital LLC. Just north of the Metra tracks, the project will yield a total of 343 for-rent units atop ground-level retail.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 2419 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. Located on the six-way intersection with N Halsted Street and W Fullerton Parkway, the new structure will replace a small privately-owned Julia Porter Park that was open to the public. The project comes from developer Mike Breheny who is working with local architects Studio Dwell on the masonry-clad building.
