A permit has been issued for a renovation at 1417 N Wicker Park Avenue in Wicker Park. The project entails exterior facade repair and restoration of an existing two-story residential building with two dwelling units. There will be no interior alterations, and there’s no change in occupancy, use, or area, as indicated by the permit’s description.
The Chicago City Council has approved two mixed-use developments at 1235 N Ashland Avenue and 1301 N Ashland Avenue in Wicker Park. Located on two separate lots just north of the intersection with N Milwaukee Avenue and across the street from Wicker Park Commons, both of the proposals will replace five-existing buildings in total dating back to the late 1800s. Grand Properties Acquisitions, LLC is behind both with local firm Hanna Architects working on their design.
Initial funding has been announced for the potential redevelopment of the building at 1550 N Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park. Located just south of the six-corner intersection with N Damen Avenue and W North Avenue, the combined two-building site is currently home to the Lubinski Furniture store who also owns it. The redevelopment plans are being led by nonprofit arts group Equity Arts which seeks to create a permanent home for the local art scene that placed the neighborhood on the map.
Construction continues on the mixed-use development at 1954-1956 W North Avenue in the heart of Wicker Park. Located at the heart of the neighborhood on the six-corner intersection with N Damen Avenue, the historical preservation and redevelopment will revitalize the corner structure which has sat vacant for many years now. The team at Ernst Development is working with local architecture firm Hirsch MPG on its design, which aims to bring back some of the building’s original details after buying it in 2021.
A construction permit has recently been approved for a new residential development at 2254 W North Avenue in Wicker Park. Volo Holdings LLC is the developer behind the project, which will consist of a four-story building with six residential units, a ground-floor office space, a rooftop deck, a rooftop stair enclosure, and a three-vehicle garage on the first floor. The project is set to replace a narrow, vacant grass lot.
