Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building in the Boystown neighborhood of Lake View East. The site is a two-minute walk west from the intersection of W Aldine Avenue and N Halsted Street, where bus route 8 stops. A four-minute walk southwest from the address is the intersection of N Halsted Street and W Belmont Avenue, where additional bus routes 7, 151, and 156 are serviced. This area around the intersection also contains a wide variety of bars, restaurants, and retail. CTA L access can be reached via an eight-minute walk southwest to Belmont Station, on the Brown, Purple, and Red Lines. Additional points of interest include the 12-minute walk east to the waterfront by Belmont Harbor, and an 18-minute walk northwest along N Clark Street to Wrigleyville.
Construction work is nearing completion on 110 N Wacker, a 56-story office tower reaching 817-feet tall at its namesake address of 110 N Wacker Drive in the Loop. Located on a riverside full-block lot along N Wacker Drive between W Washington Street and W Randolph Street, the project is designed by architect Goettsch Partners and developed by the Howard Hughes Corporation and Riverside Investment & Development.
YIMBY has construction photo updates of 1125 W Van Buren Street, now structurally topped out on the southern edge of West Loop, just north of Interstate 290.
Permits were filed just over a week ago for 1518 W Thomas Street, a four-story development in Noble Square, between W Thomas Street and a smaller alley. Currently on the site sits two smaller residential buildings, each two floors above ground. The lot is located two blocks west of the intersection of W Thomas Street with N Milwaukee Avenue, where bus Route 56 stops. Within a five-minute walking distance is the triple intersection of N Milwaukee Avenue, N Ashland Avenue, and W Division Street, which hosts an array of restaurants, entertainment, and outdoor activities. Also at this intersection is bus Route 70 access, as well as the CTA L Blue Line via Division Station.
YIMBY has image updates for the future 813-foot-tall Wolf Point South in River North after providing permit updates earlier this week. The 58-story office tower at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza will be the third and final installation of River North’s Wolf Point complex. A recent photo captured the caissons, concrete, and rebar beginning to form a portion of the footprint. Despite a single mobile crane currently occupying the site, freestanding crane permits have been approved, with installation likely imminent as foundation work continues.
