A more precise completion date has been revealed for the mixed-use development at 655 W Madison Street in West Loop Gate as we take a closer look at its design. Located directly next to the Kennedy Expressway in the quickly growing neighborhood, the proposal replaces a surface parking lot with a multi-phase two-tower concept. Developer John Buck Company updated their website for the HOK– and JGMA-designed project, which will be managed by local real estate firm Madison Rose which is also in charge of One Chicago.
The construction of a seven-story mixed-use building at 812 W Adams Street in the West Loop continues advancing. As structural work reaches the top floor, this project by Luxe Suites Chicago continues to fill out its designated footprint, which spans a full block east-to-west. Upon completion, this new mid rise will offer 80 rental apartments and 4,200 square feet of retail space.
A foundation permit has been issued for a five-story mixed-use building planned for 3347 N Southport Avenue in Lake View.

The structure will replace a three-story masonry mixed-use building that has since been demolished.
The 60-story Salesforce Tower is now receiving its finishing touches at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza in River North. The mixed-use, primarily office tower is a collaboration between Hines and longtime landowner, the Joseph P. Kennedy Family, marking the completion of the three-tower Wolf Point masterplan. With its 850-foot stature, the tower makes a bold statement on the northwest corner of Chicago’s skyline, and is prominently visible when approaching from the northwest along the Kennedy Expressway.
The Community Development Commission has approved the potential land transfer for two gardens on the South and West Sides. Located at 3024 W 5th Avenue in East Garfield Park and 3302 E 92nd Street in South Chicago, both community gardens will replace vacant lots with much needed recreation space for locals. Although unlikely, the approval grants a small grace period in which other proposals for the lots will be considered prior to transferring the sites to land trust NeighborSpace.
