The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 4000 W North Avenue in Humboldt Park. Dubbed Team Pioneros, the project will restore the existing Pioneer Bank building on the corner with N Pulaski Road and construct a new structure behind it. The colorful proposal is also a winner of the city’s Invest South/West initiative and is being led by Park Row Development as well as local architecture firm JGMA, who will eventually call the property home when the firm moves its current offices.
Since last week’s site prep update, an initial foundation permit has now been issued for the planned hospital addition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Lake View. The construction of a new lateral addition, known as phase 03A, is taking place at 900 W Nelson Street. This structure will be attached to an adjacent medical building constructed in 2015. Once the phase 03A structure has been built, phase 03B – a vertical expansion sitting on top of both the earlier 2015 building and phase 03A – will begin construction.

Structural work is now sprouting above ground level for 150 E Ontario Street in Streeterville, set to give rise to a new 28-story hotel.

A cafe will also be located at the southeast corner of the building’s street level
Demolition work has begun and a groundbreaking is imminent for the second phase of the Harper Court development at 5209 S Harper Avenue in Hyde Park. Located on the corner with E 52nd Street, the upcoming structure will replace a one-story building and vertically expand the existing shops from phase one. Its construction comes after multiple revisions and set-backs that downsized the originally proposed high-rise to the current low-rise. Developers Beacon Capital Partners and Trammell Crow are working with Elkus Manfredi Architects and Interactive Design Architects on the updated proposal we covered last summer.
