Construction permits have been issued for a single-story Starbucks set to occupy a currently vacant lot at 4200 S Pulaski Road in Archer Heights. Co-planned by Pulaski Promenade LLC and Pine Tree Commercial Real Estate, the building will include a vestibule and drive-through, a parking lot with 32 spots and 12 bike spaces, and extensive new landscaping. The project is an addition to a mall area that was built in 2015.

Located on a thin, rectangular site, the parcel is bound by and adjacent building to the north, N Union Avenue to the east, train lines to the south, and N Halsted Street to the west. Onni Group is the developer behind the project.
Since Chicago YIMBY’s last November update, construction has added an additional floor for 3839 N Clark Street, a planned five-story residential building in Lake View. With permits issued of January 2020 under Clark Apartments LLC, plans call for nine total units with attached balconies, as well as a fitness center contained within the top-floor penthouse enclosure. Units vary between one- and three-bedrooms and range in size from 795 to 1,365 square feet.
Demolition permits have been issued for a single-story masonry commercial garage located at 3600 W Cortland Street in Logan Square. Lukasz Koziol is the filing owner, whose plans for the site have not yet been disclosed. However, the property is currently zoned for B3-1, which allows for shopping centers, large stores, and retail storefronts, as well as apartments above the ground floor. B3-1 also permits a floor area ratio of 1.2, whereby any new building may have up to 1.2 times the square footage of that of the lot itself. Additionally, the maximum building height under this designation is 38 feet.
Installation of white metal panels can be seen at The Bentham, a 14-story mixed-use development at 146 W Erie Street near the center of River North.

Floors four through fourteen will house 31 residential condominium units, each consisting of three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The project is set to replace a single-story auto body shop that was demolished in 2017.
