Inspired by Curbed Chicago’s 2019 article on the West Loop’s skyline transformation, today YIMBY will be diving into an extensive update on the numerous developments taking shape in the Fulton Market area. As these projects continue to evolve, we’ll be updating this article for those who wish to refer back to it later or explore these developments in 3D via Rebar Radar.
Final zoning approval was granted for the mixed-use development at 2354 and 2355 N Washtenaw Avenue in Logan Square. The pair of buildings will be located on the southern corners of the intersection with W Fullerton Avenue across the street from Haas Park, replacing a one-story bank and a parking lot with much needed density in the growing neighborhood. The project comes to us from Hibernian Development who worked with local firm 360 Design Studio on the nearly twin structures.
A permit for a new two-floor, two-unit residential building has been issued under the address 1735 N Albany Avenue in Humboldt Park. Set to be both developed and built by BM UK Enterprise Company, the new housing will come with a rooftop deck and stair enclosure. The main structure will also be accompanied by a detached three-vehicle garage. Hanna Architects is the listed architect of record.
Updated details have been approved for the residential development at 330 W Chestnut Street in the Near North Side. Located on the intersection with N Orleans Street near the upcoming North Union megadevelopment, the project replaces a vacant lot which has served as a parking lot in recent years. Now developers Draper & Kramer and BlitzLake Partners have returned to the Plan Commission after receiving approval last fall, as they are amending the plans designed by FitzGerald Associates.
Construction is wrapping up for a new affordable residential development for seniors at 833 W Wilson Avenue in Uptown. Brinshore Development LLC has joined forces with Landon Bone Baker Architect, a firm renowned for their affordable housing designs, to bring this project to life. The building will be situated on a vacant lot to the west of the intersection with N Clarendon Avenue, close to the recently approved Sarah’s on Lakeview.
