Coming in at the 17th spot in this year’s countdown is the mixed-use development at 741 N Wells Street in River North. Located just south of the intersection with W Chicago Avenue, the project replaces a one-story commercial building that previously held a furniture store and was demolished to make way for the quickly growing Wells Street canyon. Developer Vista Property Group, who recently proposed 640 W Randolph Street in West Loop Gate, used the same team from Antunovich Associates on this design as well.
Work has topped out for a new five-story mixed-use building at 4501 N Sheridan Avenue in Uptown. Planned by Mavrek Development and formerly the site of a single-story masonry commercial building, the new structure will house ground-level retail topped by a total of 59 residential apartments.
A permit was approved on Tuesday for a new two-story residential building to be located at 18 N Parkside Avenue in the Austin neighborhood. Adam Zegarski of A-Z Builders Inc is listed as the owner and published plans indicate that this project will yield three dwelling units, each outfitted with a rear metal porch. Plans also show the presence of three outdoor parking stalls. The project will be constructed on a vacant lot.
With the last of the exterior wrapping up, construction is coming to a close for 166 N Aberdeen Street, aka One Six Six. This 21-story mixed-use tower by Greystar marks the 18th tallest construction project in the city, rising 224 feet in height. Now standing its full 224-foot height, the high rise is set to house 224 rental apartments atop ground-level retail.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 1549 N Fremont Street in the Near North Side. Located just south of the intersection with W North Avenue, the U-shaped structure will replace a surface parking lot surrounded by the multi-story Toyota dealership garage with an outer wall that partially collapsed this year after a windstorm. Local developer CityPads Chicago, responsible for other residential buildings in the city, is leading the project for which the architect is currently unknown.
