The National Parks service has opened The Pullman National Monument, Chicago’s first National Monument at 11001 S Cottage Grove Avenue in Pullman. Opening ceremonies for the complex took place over Labor Day weekend, a holiday which traces its origins back to the workers that made the Pullman Company into a passenger rail juggernaut with its iconic sleeper cars. The new monument is expected to attract over 300,000 yearly visitors and bring a major economic impact to the growing neighborhood.
Construction permits have been issued for a new three-story, three-unit residential development at 6508 S Ingleside Avenue in Woodlawn. The owner and developer, filed under GA Roslyn LLC, has also planned for the building to include a rear open metal porch spanning the full height and three parking spaces. The new construction will replace a formerly vacant lot.
Revised plans have been revealed for a proposed residential development at 640 W Irving Park Road in Uptown. Sharing sites with the existing Immaculata High School, the 22-story building will rise in front of Lake Shore Drive and offer residents unobstructed views of the lake. The project is being developed by KGiles LLC and CA Ventures and designed by Perkins Eastman with Level Architecture.
Last week, construction permits were issued for a new three-story residential building at 6359 S Ellis Avenue in Woodlawn. Owner Saheed Tepede has planned three dwellings, each with a private rooftop deck space, as well as a three-car frame garage. Prior to construction, this property was occupied by an empty lot.
