Number 13 in YIMBY’s year-end countdown is the 27-story mixed-use tower at 1475 N Kingsbury Street, part of Structured Development’s Shops at Big Deahl in Near North Side. At 299 feet in height, the high rise will house a combination of ground-level retail and a total of 327 apartment units.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the next phases of the Parkside of Old Town development in the Near North Side. Located on two separate lots near each other at 542 W Elm Street and 520 W Hobbie Street, the multi-building plans will continue to grow on the affordable housing offered on the former site of the Cabrini Green complex. Developer Holsten Real Estate is operating under the Parkside name in collaboration with the Chicago Housing Authority and the Cabrini Green Community Development Corporation which have tapped local firm Landon Bone Baker Architects for their designs.
Permits were issued early last week for new construction to be located at 4119 N Ashland Avenue in the Lake View neighborhood. The site has RT-4 zoning and will naturally be another residential building. Plans indicate the building will contain six dwelling units, a basement, and a shared rooftop deck. The property will also feature a six-vehicle parking slab at the rear of the building. The permit owner has been listed as 4119 Ashland Corp. The project will replace a former multi-unit building.
Ranking #14 in YIMBY’s year-end construction countdown is 160 N Elizabeth Street, a 27-story mixed-use tower progressing in the final steps of its facade installation. Located in the west end of the Fulton Market District and developed by Moceri + Roszak, the 293-foot-tall building, now named “Fulbrix,” will feature 9,000 square feet of retail space and 375 rental units. In accordance with the ARO planning regulations, 20 percent of these units will be affordably priced and include a variety of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences, many of which will boast private balconies.
Updated renderings have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 1016 W Jackson Boulevard in West Loop. Set to replace an existing office building just west of the intersection with S Morgan Street, news on the project broke late this October and just now had its first community meeting where the images were shown. Chicago-based Mavrek Development is behind the proposal with architecture firm BKV Group crafting its design, who also worked on the proposed structures at 525 S Wabash Avenue.
