The Zoning Board of Appeals has approved the zoning for a new four-story residential building at 1620 W Grand Avenue in West Town. The project site is located on an interior lot between N Ashland Avenue and N Marshfield Avenue. The nearest public transportation are multiple bus routes, accessed at the intersection of N Ashland Avenue and W Grand Avenue. These include the 9 and 65 CTA bus routes, reached within a one-minute walk from the property. The Ashland CTA L station, serviced by the Green and Pink Lines, can be reached within a nine-minute walk from the lot. Developer DCSL Properties is in charge of the development.
Renderings have been revealed for the new Skokie Valley Synagogue renovation, located at 8825 E Prairie Road in Skokie. Located along E Prairie Road, the renovation project will upgrade and revitalize the synagogue built in 1960 to better serve the local Orthodox community and reflect the congregation’s values.
Renovation work is well underway and approaching completion at the base of 500 N Michigan Avenue, which is located along Magnificent Mile, aka Michigan Avenue, just north of the river. Skidmore Owings & Merrill originally designed this 24-story modernist structure, completed in 1968.
