Zoning has been approved for a mixed-use development at 3440 N Broadway in Lakeview East. The property is located between W Cornelia Avenue and W Roscoe Street and originally occupied by a parking garage that was recently demolished. Optima’s Optima Lakeview development at 3460 N Broadway is directly adjacent to this project site to the north. Rebel Hospitality is the developer behind the proposal.
Work has reached the second floor of a six-story mixed-use building at 61 W Erie Street in River North. Planned by LG Development Group, the building will house retail space on the ground floor and 28 units above. Seven of these units are studios, while the remaining will be larger live/work layouts.
Permits have been issued for a single-story commercial building located at 4437 W Armitage Avenue in Hermosa. Tom Sdralis is the listed owner, whose is planning both a tavern and liquor store within the same structure. Located at the corner of Armitage & Kenneth, the new development will replace an auto repair shop and an adjacent empty lot. An ordinance was passed by the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards in September 2020 allowing for work to proceed under the C1-1 Neighborhood Commercial District designation.
Photos show fencing and equipment in preparation for a new residential tower at 234 W Polk Street in South Loop. Known as The Reed, the tower will mark the next stage of a larger megadevelopment called Southbank. While the current prep work for The Reed is taking place further north from where its actual footprint will be, the work is still a critical first step for the development’s construction. Permits posted on-site show that Lendlease is sealing off old freight tunnels that run underneath the Southbank property, thereby allowing for foundation work to proceed on the tower site.
Renderings have been revealed for a commercial development located at 3179 N Clark Street in Lake View. Located on a corner lot, the project site is bound by N Clark Street, W Belmont Avenue, and N Halsted Street. A two-story masonry bank building and a surface parking lot currently occupy the site.
