Construction has reached its pinnacle for 225 N Elizabeth Street, a new 28-story high rise in Fulton Market. Taking shape on what was formerly the two-story Krueger Sausage Factory at the corner of Fulton and Elizabeth Streets, this mixed-use project is a collaborative effort between Sterling Bay and Ascentris.
Financing has cleared another hurdle for the Congress Theater redevelopment at 2135 N Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square. Located on the intersection with N Rockwell Street, we last covered the project earlier this year when initial news on the TIF money being requested for the project were announced. Now developer Baum Revision, who is working with Woodhouse Tinucci Architects, has cleared an approval from the Finance Committee with requirements in order to receive the money.
The city has issued a demolition permit for a property at 1404 North Park Avenue in the Old Town neighborhood. The property, owned by the Catherine Cook School, houses a two-story residential building and a detached frame garage, both slated for removal.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 1840 N Marcey Street in Lincoln Park. Located just west of N Clybourn Avenue and across the river from Lincoln Yards, the proposal will replace a one-story commercial building adding on to the recently announced 2033 N Kingsbury Avenue. Similar to that project, this one is also being developed by Sterling Bay with local firm SCB working on its design.
JDL‘s expansive North Union development project in Near North Side has made headway, with construction now above grade at one of its first three buildings, the five-story 232 W Chestnut Street. Situated at the junction of N Franklin Street and N Wells Street, the residential project will be Chicago’s first modern large mass-timber construction. This innovative move marks a notable shift for Chicago since its adoption of the International Building Code (IBC).
