Completed demolition can be seen at the site of 1112 W Carroll Avenue in Fulton Market, where developer Trammell Crow Company has planned for a 33-story, primarily residential tower. Set to house 377 units and a ground-floor restaurant, the 370-foot-tall structure will be one of two. The second is a planned 26-story, 410-foot-tall office tower directly to the south at 315 N May Street. This even taller high-rise will yield 650,000 square feet of leasable office space and 15,000 square feet of retail.
New permits were issued this past week for a new five-story residential building at 1803 W Grand Avenue in West Town.

Andrzej Kacprzynski is the architect of record on the permit. The new structure will replace a vacant lot.
A rising core and row of V-shaped truss supports can be seen at 360 N Green Street, where developer Sterling Bay has planned for a 24-story mixed-use tower.

New details have been revealed on the sale of the Damen Silos at 2900 S Damen Avenue in McKinley Park.

The process which consisted of accepting various bids from local companies seems to have concluded with a winner being selected.
