The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has approved the final landmark recommendation for the Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley House. Located at 6427 S St. Lawrence Avenue, the home sits on a typical Chicago lot between E 64th Street and E 65th Street in the West Woodlawn neighborhood.
Construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building at 117 S Bell Avenue in Near West Side. YIMBY previously reported on the two-building demolition on the site. Sustainabuild LLC is the property owner behind the development, which will house nine total units just west of United Center. Atop the main building will also be a rooftop deck with an accompanying enclosure. Additional features include an attached three-car garage with its own rooftop deck space above, rear porch/balcony space, and front terrace space.
Construction has begun on Optima Lakeview, a mixed-use development at 3460 N Broadway in Lake View. Located on the corner of N Broadway and W Cornelia Avenue, the project will replace an old Treasure Island grocery store and parking lot. The nearest public transportation is the 36 CTA bus route, accessed at the Broadway and Cornelia stop, on the corner of the site. The Addison CTA station, serviced by the Red Line, is a ten-minute walk away. Optima Inc is the developer-architect in charge of the design and development of the building.
