Preservation Chicago has nominated seven new sites for landmark status with the Commission on Chicago Landmarks. The seven locations are spread out across the city and represent multiple architectural styles, typologies, and scales that hold significance to the city and its historical legacy.
A permit was approved early last week for a new three-story residential building to be located at 5201 S Wabash Avenue in the Washington Park neighborhood. The owner is listed under the name Kalos Group Development LLC, with plans for three total units and a three-car concrete parking pad. The building will be replacing a vacant lot.
Invest South/West has revealed two new mixed-use development schemes for its RFP site at 4000 W North Avenue in Humboldt Park. The site sits on the corner of W North Avenue and N Pulaski Road and is made up of the landmarked Pioneer Trust and Saving Bank along with its .75-acre parking lot to the north. Goals for the RFP include new commercial space, rental and for-sale housing, and public spaces with the opportunity to celebrate local culture.
Site prep and caisson work is now visible for a new five-story educational building at 900 W Taylor Street, located near the southern edge of The University of Illinois Chicago‘s main campus. Known as the UIC Computer Design Research and Learning Center (CDRLC), the new 135,000-square-foot facility will cling to an existing mid-century building that houses various engineering departments and research centers.
