Demolition permits have been issued for a single-story masonry commercial garage located at 3600 W Cortland Street in Logan Square. Lukasz Koziol is the filing owner, whose plans for the site have not yet been disclosed. However, the property is currently zoned for B3-1, which allows for shopping centers, large stores, and retail storefronts, as well as apartments above the ground floor. B3-1 also permits a floor area ratio of 1.2, whereby any new building may have up to 1.2 times the square footage of that of the lot itself. Additionally, the maximum building height under this designation is 38 feet.
Installation of white metal panels can be seen at The Bentham, a 14-story mixed-use development at 146 W Erie Street near the center of River North. Sedgwick Development is responsible for the planning and design of the tower, which will include a podium with 2,556 square feet of retail at ground level and 46 parking spaces on the first through third floors. Floors four through fourteen will house 31 residential condominium units, each consisting of three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The project is set to replace a single-story auto body shop that was demolished in 2017.
Construction is expected to commence on an adaptive reuse development located at 1358 W Chestnut Street in Noble Square. Located at the intersection of N Noble Street and W Chestnut Street, the development boundaries will include St. Boniface Church and the vacant land to the north and east of the church. Stas Development is the developer behind the proposal.
Construction permits have been issued for a new three-story residential building at 3655 S Michigan Avenue in Douglas. Filed under the owner Innisfree Builders, the development will include an open rear steel porch and stairs, as well as a three-car detached garage. The project is set to replace a currently vacant lot that was part of a recent ordinance to rezone a multi-parcel stretch of land from B3-3, Community Shopping District and Cl-3 Neighborhood Commercial District to RM-5 Residential Multi-Unit District.
Construction has reached the 800-foot-tall mark for the east tower at One Chicago Square, a 2.2 million-square-foot megadevelopment in the northeast corner of River North. Planned by JDL and Sterling Bay, the project involves a pair of 49- and 74-story skyscrapers rising 574 and 971 feet in height, respectively, the latter of which will be Chicago’s eighth tallest building upon its completion.
