Updated plans have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 1300 W Carroll Avenue in the West Loop. Located on the northwest corner with N Elizabeth Street and replacing a vacant lot that once held the ADM Wheat Mill silos, the multi-phase project has now received a redesign after feedback from the community and the Department of Planning and Development. Developer Sterling Bay is still working with global design firm SOM on the proposal which received some major changes from its initial announcement in November 2021.
BJB Partners is making steady progress on the construction of the new mixed-use development at 151 N Michigan Avenue in New Eastside. The central stairwell is currently nearing full height, bringing the project one step closer to its anticipated completion in 2024. The development replaces a former single-story restaurant venue and will house a total of 15,000 square feet of commercial space. The ground floor will feature 5,300 square feet of retail space, which will be split into two or three commercial units, depending on demand.
Construction permits have been issued for a new residential development in the South Austin neighborhood. Under the owner name Keon Medlock, the development will be located at 162 N La Crosse Avenue, formerly the site of a vacant lot.
Construction is filling out for the base of 150 E Ontario Street, a 28-story hotel in Streeterville, Chicago. The 345-foot-tall structure will be the latest addition to the RIU Hotels and Resorts chain and is expected to feature 388 guest rooms, along with a cafe at the southeast corner of the building’s street level. The Prime Group is the developer behind this project.
The Chicago City Council has approved the residential development at 4642 N Magnolia Avenue in Uptown. Located just south of the intersection with W Leland Avenue near the St. Boniface Cemetery, the project will sit on a lot that has sat vacant since 2014 when the previous house on it was demolished. Now developer Finan Development Corp is moving forward with their plans designed by local-firm Laszlo Simovic Architects.
