The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the Bronzeville Lakefront Megadevelopment planned for the former Michael Reese Hospital site in Bronzeville. The 71-acre site spans a large parcel of land from E 26th Street to E 31 Street from north to south, and from S Martin Luther King Drive to S Lake Park avenue from west to east respectively. The existing Prairie Shores residential complex is included in the scope of this project, but will remain unchanged.
The proposed zoning has been approved for a residential development at 955 W 115th Street in West Pullman. Located along W 115th Street, the site is currently a vacant lot spanning from S Morgan Street to the Major Taylor Trail. Habitat for Humanity Chicago is behind the development.
The approved two-tower development at 400 N Lake Shore Drive breaks into the top five in Chicago’s tallest developments countdown. Located on the former Chicago Spire site, the lot is bound by the Chicago River to the south and Lake Shore Drive to the east. Both the Zoning Committee and Chicago City Council have approved the updated plans for the project at 400 N Lake Shore Drive in Streeterville, allowing it to move forward. Related Midwest is developing 400 N Lake Shore Drive.
Photos show final exterior touches and crane disassembly at 800 W Fulton Market, an 18-story, primarily office development along West Loop‘s booming Fulton Market corridor. Measuring 300 feet in height, the tower was developed by Thor Equities and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
Structural work is close to topping out at 800 W Fulton Market, where developer Thor Equities has planned an 18-story office tower yielding a total 472,000 square feet. Since the last construction update, two of the final floors have been added and work has begun on the glass and brick facade.
