Permits were issued on the 29th for the removal of a two-story residential building located at 831 N Maplewood Avenue in West Town. The permit owner is listed as 831 N Maplewood LLC and they were also issued a permit for a new construction back in early October. The new building plans consist of three total units, a basement level, a rooftop deck, front and rear decks, and a detached three-vehicle garage with its own rooftop deck.
Taking the 29th spot in our year-end countdown is the residential development at 4600 N Marine Drive in Uptown. Sitting right across the street from Montrose Beach on the intersection with W Wilson Avenue, the project replaces a surface parking lot previously owned by Weiss Memorial Hospital after much controversy with locals. Developer Lincoln Property Company has been leading the charge of the Valerio Dewalt Train-designed building which broke ground recently.
Construction permits have been issued for a four-story mixed-use building set for 4939 N Damen Avenue in Ravenswood. Fortech, Inc is the filing owner, whose plans include 12 total units, along with first-floor retail and a 12-vehicle garage topped with a rooftop deck. The property was formerly occupied by a one-floor masonry commercial building.
Permits were issued on Wednesday for the construction of a new multi-unit building which will be located at 2653 West Cortez Street in West Town. The permit lists the owner as 2651 W Cortez LLC and plans involve the construction of a three-story building with three units and a basement. The building will reportedly include side entry access stairs, a rear deck on the ground level, and a four-story open rear egress stair. Plans also indicate the presence of a rooftop deck and a detached three-car garage in the rear. A demolition permit was issued for this address and the neighboring property to the same owners in August of this year.
As the 30th tallest construction project in Chicago’s year-end countdown and set to stand 155 feet in height, 140 N Ashland Avenue is now making headway in Near West Side. The 12-story building by Marquette Companies will attach to an existing five-story brick building, offering a total 210 rental apartments in addition to first-floor retail. At least 10 percent of the units will be affordable, while the remaining five percent will either be on- or off-site (yet to be indicated).
