A permit was approved last week for a new three-story residential building to be located at 2121 N Magnolia Avenue in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. The owner is listed as Chicago Greystone Development-Magnolia and plans indicate this project will yield three total units along with a detached three-car garage. The structure will also have a rooftop deck with an access stair. The development will replace a previous structure on the site.
With nearly all of its glazing installed, the 50-story skyscraper at 320 S Canal Street, aka BMO Tower, can now be seen in its final form along the Chicago skyline. Co-developed by Riverside Investment & Development alongside Convexity Properties, the 727-foot-tall behemoth is one of the city’s tallest new structures, let alone office buildings. The structure is situated in West Loop Gate directly south of the iconic Union Station, and is replacing a former parking and retail structure.
The Chicago City Council has approved landmark designation of the Muddy Waters House at 4339 S Lake Park Avenue in North Kenwood. The brick-cladded two-flat was built in 1891 near the lake, and eventually became the home of McKinley Morganfield, aka Muddy Waters, between 1965 to 1973. As YIMBY previously reported, the home fulfilled various categories needed for the designation and has now cleared the final hurdle to win landmark recognition.
A permit was approved late last week for a three-story, two-unit residential building to be located at 6620 S Kimbark Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood. The owner is listed as Crystal Moore and plans indicate this project will feature a rooftop enclosure, a rear wood deck, and a two-car garage. The development will replace a vacant lot.
Landmark Development has revealed further details for the first phase of its One Central mega-development, which will cap the rail tracks in the Near South Side. Although often considered the most ambitious of the current mega-projects proposed for the city, such as The 78 and Lincoln Yards, Landmark is pushing forward with the Gensler-designed complex despite recent worries that The Chicago Bears could depart from nearby Soldier Field. The first phase will come at a cost of $3.8 billion and is being dubbed as the ‘Civic Build’ phase of the project.
