Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 3831 W Chicago Avenue in Humboldt Park. Located on the corner with N Avers Avenue, the new construction will replace a series of city-owned empty lots and three empty one-story masonry clad industrial buildings the developer now owns. The project is being led by 548 Development, who has worked on various Invest South/West proposals, with local firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative working on its modern design.
A demolition permit was approved last week to remove a two-story, mixed-use building along with a detached frame garage, located at 3457 N Milwaukee Avenue in the Avondale neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been listed as E and O Builders Inc.
Demolition permits have now been issued for a three-story building at 140 N Ashland Avenue in Near West Side, where developer Marquette Companies has planned a 12-story mixed-use building. The to-be-demolished edifice formerly housed the Women’s Treatment Center, which has since relocated as part of a downsizing. Its replacement will integrate with an adjacent 1920s-era brick and limestone building, offering 210 apartments in total.
Further details have been revealed for a hospital addition at 900 W Nelson Street in Lake View East. The expansion will be for the Illinois Masonic Hospital which has been slowly re-designing and expanding its existing campus as demand rises and technology changes. The multi-phase plan is being developed by the hospital with SmithGroup working on the building’s design, which was recently submitted for approval from the Illinois Health Facilities and Services review board.
A permit was approved on Friday for a new four-story residential building to be located at 5689 N Lincoln Avenue in the West Ridge neighborhood. The permit indicates that this will be owner-occupied with owners listed as Lekhayim Venture LLC. Plans indicate that the project will yield six total units and include two three-car masonry garages as well as trash enclosures. The development will replace a paved lot.
