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.
Construction permits were officially issued on Monday for ‘Sarah’s on Lakeside,’ the upcoming residential housing development for homeless women located at 4737 N Sheridan Road in Uptown. As YIMBY previously reported, this development comes from non-profit organization Sarah’s Circle and Perkins + Will who will act as the architect for the new project. This new build will be replacing an empty lot on the corner of Sheridan Road and W Lakeside Place.
New details have been revealed for the future of the Damen Silos at 2900 S Damen Avenue in McKinley Park. Located on the Chicago River just north of the exit from the Stevenson Expressway, in a historically industrial area south of Pilsen. The state officially announced the sale of the long abandoned structures which they have owned since 1928 but closed after an explosion in 1977. The sale will consist mainly of a bidding period in which potential buyers will submit their offers for the site.
