Final facade work is now underway for a six-story residential building at 2700 N Sheffield Avenue in Lincoln Park. Known as “Sheffield of Lincoln Park,” the project is part of a broader renovation plan by Pihrl and the Chicago Housing Authority to renovate the Edith Spurlock Apartment complex, whose two existing buildings were originally built in the 1960s. Set to replace a parking lot between the pair of structures, the new 85-foot-tall edifice will house 80 residences to bring the complex’s total up to 485 units.
The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 835 W Addison Street in Lakeview East. Located just west of the intersection with N Halsted Street directly across the street from the Chicago Police Department building, the new structure will replace brick-clad Lakeview Lutheran Church currently occupying the site. A collaboration between the church itself and the Over The Rainbow Association are developing the project which is being designed by local architecture firm Weese Langley Weese.
Demolition permits have been issued for the removal of a two-story multi-unit building located at 2921 N Southport Avenue in the Lake View neighborhood. The current structure has a frame exterior and is accompanied by a detached frame garage which has also been slated for removal. The permit lists the McKinney Group as the owner. No plans for any upcoming builds have been submitted.
Updated plans have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 1338 W Lake Street in the West Loop. Originally announced via a zoning application in September 2022, the new structure will be located on the northeast corner with N Ada Street bound by the CTA tracks to the south while replacing a multi-story industrial structure currently occupying the lot. Developer Cedar Street Companies is working with local architecture firm SCB on its design located on the western edge of the expanding neighborhood.
Many of the I-beam exterior pieces have now been installed along 1012 W Addison Street, a new three-story sportsbook betting addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View. The Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development are spearheading an extension to the iconic stadium oriented around sports betting, whose ban in the city was recently lifted. Owing to this new ordinance, the five major sports stadiums in the city have now facilitated their own betting operations.
