The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for the new Belmont Cragin Elementary School at 6100 W Fullerton Avenue in Belmont Central.

Public Building Commission of Chicago is the developer for the project, representing Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Park District.
Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building, located at 4138 S Michigan Avenue in Bronzeville.

The new development is set to replace a currently vacant lot.
Construction is progressing rapidly for a 26-story mixed-use building at 1400 W Randolph Street.

Zoning has been approved for the updated mixed-use development at 4600 N Kenmore Avenue in Uptown.

Permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 6447 S Ellis Avenue, located in Woodlawn. Owned by Mike Slazas, the planned project will contain four total units, along with a basement and a rear three-story open porch. The new structure is set to replace a currently vacant lot. However, given the larger size of the parcel and its current address of 6445 S Ellis Avenue, it is unclear if the owner will ultimately fit two new buildings within its bounds.
