The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a new school structure at 8231 S South Shore Drive in South Chicago. Located just north of the intersection with E 83rd Street near Steelworks Park and Rainbow Beach, the proposal will replace a handful of smaller multi-story buildings as well as renovate the former St. Michaels School building. The school will serve as the new home for EPIC Academy which currently operates down the street and is developing the project designed by local firm JGMA.
Renovation work has completed for the Lake Meadows Pavilion at 467 E 31st Street in Bronzeville. The newly-modernized building, owned and originally built by Draper & Kramer, has evolved from its initial role as the Lake Meadows Professional Building to what will now be open office layout.
A construction permit has been issued for The Clybourn, a five-story mixed-use development at 3140 N Clybourn Avenue in West Lakeview. Developed by Range Group and located just south of Clybourn Avenue, Western Avenue, & Belmont Avenue, this 55,150-square-foot structure will yield 39 residential units and ground-level retail.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the latest plans for the mixed-use development at 1300 W Carroll Avenue in the West Loop. Located on the corner with N Elizabeth Street and replacing the former site of the ADM Wheat Mill Silos, the multi-phase project was recently revised and presented at a public meeting this past February with changes to the overall design and plan. Now Sterling Bay has received its first approval for the SOM-designed structure which was first proposed in 2021.
Shapack Partners has received a demolition permit clearing the way for a 29-story mixed-use development at 1353 W Fulton Street. The tower, set to be constructed near the western edge of Fulton Market, will take the place of the current single-story building at 224 N Ada Street. Programming will yield 308 residential units, ground-floor retail, and both resident- and public-facing amenity spaces.
