A permit was issued this week for a new six-story mixed-use building located at 1257 W Roosevelt Road in the Near West Side neighborhood. This build will be part of the larger Roosevelt Square project being led by Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority which was approved in February of this year.
This year’s countdown continues with The Lydian at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District taking the 19th place. The structure claimed the 19th place in last year’s countdown as well when it had recently broken ground, but now the development races towards completion just south of the intersection with W Congress Parkway. Local developer Marquette Companies, who is also behind a handful of projects around the West Loop’s Union Park, is leading the charge with architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch having worked on its design.
Metal cladding is getting closer to completion for 4600 Kenmore Avenue, a six-story mixed-use building in Uptown. Under development by Cedar Street Companies, the project will offer 2,500 square feet of retail space at ground level and 62 rental apartments above.
Demolition permits were issued this week for a two-story masonry residence located at 6334 North Whipple Street in the West Ridge neighborhood. The owner of the permit is listed as Congregation B’nei Ruven. The residence is being moved as part of a larger plan to renovate and expand the neighboring school.
At number 20 in our year-end construction countdown is the 21-story mixed-use tower in Streeterville known as The Saint Grand. Formerly the site of a parking garage that was demolished this year, this project at 535 N St Clair Street is being developed by Mavrek Development. The 238-foot-tall structure will blend office space and 248 apartment units atop 7,855 square feet of commercial space.
