Initial construction permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 5159 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located on the southeastern corner with W Foster Avenue, the new structure will replace a currently vacant lot that up until recently held multiple one-story commercial buildings which were home to local stalwart Jimmy’s Pizza Cafe. Developer Grand Properties Acquisitions LLC is working with Chicago-based Hanna Architects, who designed a very similar proposal just up the street at 5214 N Lincoln Avenue.
With much of the foundation work now in place, steel beams have been spotted at 812 W Adams Street in West Loop, the site of a new seven-story mixed-use development by Luxe Suites Chicago. The project will include 80 for-rent apartments and 4,200 square feet of retail, which will replace three low-rise buildings on the southernmost part of the block.
The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for a new industrial building at 8900 S Genoa Avenue in Auburn Gresham. Located across 11 lots on the intersection with W 89th Street, the new structure replaces a one-story repair garage and a large vehicle lot. The developer and architect listed for the project is Safety & Security Real Estate Solutions LLC.
With cladding not far behind, structural work has now topped out for 1044 W Van Buren Street, an 18-story mixed-use high rise along the southern edge of West Loop. Previously a two-story masonry building, the site is being developed by Tandem, whose plans call for a total of 196 for-rent apartments atop a ground-level retail component.
The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for the mixed-use development at 301 E 43rd Street in Bronzeville. Located on the southeast corner with S Prairie Avenue, the proposal replaces an existing commercial building with the second phase of the 43Green project for which Chicago YIMBY was able to speak with the architects last month. Developers P3 Markets and The Habitat Company are working with local designers Moody Nolan and Landon Bone Baker on the new affordable structure.
