The City of Chicago has awarded the construction contract for the new CTA Green Line Damen station at 2001 W Lake Street in the Near West Side. The stop has been long discussed for the growing west side area, and to serve major events at the nearby United Center which will allow for less vehicle bottlenecks on the surrounding city streets. The contract has been awarded to local construction company F.H. Paschen who has extensive experience with projects across Chicago airports, parks, schools, and transportation.
Construction is a go for a three-story residential building developed by Kalos Group Development LLC, set to replace a vacant lot at 5205 S Wabash Avenue in Washington Park. The new project will house three total units, as well as a rear three-car concrete parking pad.
Developer Fern Hill has announced plans to redevelop various plots of land with existing buildings in Old Town. The massive project will utilize six parcels owned by both Fern Hill and Moody Church north of W North Avenue and bound by N Clark Street, N LaSalle Drive, and N Wells Street. While no details on what the designs or scale of the work have been revealed, it has been announced that the developer has chosen renowned architect David Adjaye to execute the design of the various future buildings.
Construction has fully completed for PLSN Condos, a four-building mixed-use development at 816-832 W Cullerton Street in Pilsen. Arranged linearly along Cullerton Street, the westernmost building stands three stories, while the remainder are four stories. Planned by Public 2 LLC, the new structures have replaced a formerly vacant lot.
A construction permit was issued this week for a new three-story residential building located at 4819 N Ashland Avenue in Uptown. With Castleview Holdings LLC as the developer, the new construction will yield four total units, as well as other features such as a basement level, a rooftop deck with a trellis and stair enclosure, and a detached four-car garage with a separate rooftop deck. The property is currently occupied by a two-story masonry residence, for which demolition permits have been filed but not yet issued.
