Updated renderings have been revealed for the two-tower office development at 655 W Madison Street in West Loop Gate. Located just east of the Kennedy Expressway/I-90, the project plans to replace a large surface parking lot and joins various other proposals in the immediate area cashing in on their proximity to the Loop and West Loop. Chicago based developer the John Buck Company, who has managed the Willis tower in its past, is teaming up with local architecture firms HOK and JGMA on the design of the structure.
Renovation and construction work are rapidly taking shape for Fulton Market’s new Guinness Taproom. Coordinated by developer Fred Latsko, the project is an adaptive re-use of the former Pennsylvania Railroad Terminal Building at 375 N Morgan Street. A former destination for street art, the converted beer hub will yield a 10-barrel brewery, a pub, and a restaurant with local chef cuisine.
A permit was issued last week for a three-story residential building with a masonry facade at 6152 S Champlain Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood. The proposed project’s owner is listed as Sustainabuild LLC. The permit details the construction of three units each outfitted with a rear porch, and a three-vehicle parking pad at the rear of the building site. The construction will fill a vacant lot.
The former Sears department store site, located at 4712 W Irving Park Road in Portage Park has undergone extensive construction since YIMBY’s last update. With Novak Construction as developer and general contractor, a comprehensive demolition was carried out earlier this year, making way for a $90 million adaptive re-use project. The six-story development is one of several, including the recently-covered Clarendale Six Corners, meant to enliven the intersection of Milwaukee and Cicero Avenues and Irving Park Road. It should be noted however that, according to an article by Nadig Newspapers, the project did receive a stop-work order from the city this week for performing work outside the scope of issued permits.
Updated details have been revealed for a residential development at 5841 N Clark Street in Edgewater. Located north of the intersection with W Ardmore Avenue, the project replaces a small commercial and office building along with their shared parking lot built in the early 1900’s, all of which have recently been demolished and fenced off. Their replacement is being led by developer Anne Shutler who is working with SPACE Architects + Planners on the multi-unit building aimed at families.
