Permits were finally issued this week for a mixed-use development at 4537 N Clark Street in Uptown. YIMBY previously reported on the controversial building in January when renderings were revealed. The permit indicates that the four-story build will have 14 dwelling units with three-bedroom layouts. The first floor will also hold two commercial spaces separated by the residential lobby. There will be 15 parking spaces at the rear of the building. Residents will have access to private balconies facing N Clark Street as well as a large rooftop deck.
Foundation work is making quick headway for 160 N Morgan Street, a 30-story apartment building gearing up to rise in Fulton Market. At 350 feet, the tower will be one of the taller structures to rise as West Loop‘s development boom gains momentum. Developed in partnership between Sterling Bay and Ascentris, plans for the structure include 282 rental units, occupied by two levels of retail at its base.
Initial plans have been revealed for a new elevated park trail spanning the length of an abandoned Kenwood CTA tracks in Bronzeville. Plans for a recreation space on the aging infrastructure have been discussed as far back as 2005 and recently started solidifying with the creation of the Bronzeville Trail Task Force (BTTF) in 2020 to begin the community outreach and fundraising efforts to execute the concept. The task force is currently working on preliminary studies and budgets while seeking a formal designer for the project as well.
A permit was approved yesterday for a new three-story residential building at 630 N Long Avenue in the Austin neighborhood. The owner of the permit is listed as 630 Long LLC, and the current plans indicate this project will produce three total units. This will be a masonry build and will have open frame porches at the rear, as well as a six-foot-tall wooden fencing and three parking spots. The building will replace a vacant lot.
Now six stories high, structural work continues its climb for 166 N Aberdeen Street, a 21-story residential development in West Loop’s Fulton Market. Set to rise 241 feet and planned by development firm Greystar, this tower is one of several new additions for this cycle that will transform the Randolph Street corridor.
