Since YIMBY’s construction tour of One Chicago in July, the tower crane has been disassembled and the parapet completed for the taller east tower of the massive two-tower development in River North. The aforementioned near-supertall stands 76 stories and 971 feet, while the shorter west tower reaches 49 stories and 574 feet. Both skyscrapers are connected via a 10-story podium that occupies most of the block bound by W Chicago Avenue, N State Street, W Superior Street, and N Dearborn Street. JDL is the developer of the 2.1 million-square-foot complex, having begun construction in 2019.
Developer Wilmot Construction, Inc has filed a zoning change application with the Committee on Zoning for a mixed-use development at 2841 W Belmont Avenue in Avondale. Wilmot is teaming up with Hanna Architects to bring the new five-story building to the ever-growing neighborhood. Bound by W Belmont Avenue to the north and an existing one-story auto repair shop to the west, its eastern neighbor would be a new five-story residential development called The Avondale also being developed by Wilmot.
A permit has been issued for the foundation and first two floors of 4611 N Broadway, a nine-story mixed-use building planned in Uptown. Prior to construction, the site was occupied by two single-story masonry buildings, which were demolished earlier this year.
Exterior work is rapidly approaching the finish line for a three-story mixed-use commercial redevelopment project at Fulton Market‘s 932 W Randolph Street. As part of the redevelopment, developer L3 Capital is re-skinning the former bank building and adding a new three-story addition at the northern end of the property.
Developer P3 Properties reveals updated plans for a residential building at 2414 N Sawyer Avenue in Logan Square. The unique lot which is surrounded by alleys on all three sides is wedged between a multi-story courtyard building to the north, and a one-story Social Security office building to the south where N Sawyer Avenue meets W Fullerton Avenue. The lot which has remained vacant for over 50 years is being developed by P3 Properties in collaboration with McGrath Architects as a co-developer and designer of the project.
