Updated renderings are currently making their way through zoning approvals as Pizzuti Development plans 1061 W Van Buren Street, a new 21-story mixed-use tower along the southern edge of West Loop. Officially addressed as 1011 W Van Buren Street, the project will be replacing a narrow vacant lot whose length runs west and east. Alongside completed towers like Avra West Loop and Landmark West Loop and other underway developments like 1044 W Van Buren and CA6, the new construction represents a growing node of high-density housing along the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290).
Full construction permits have been issued for the residential development at 3431 N Ashland Avenue in Lake View. Located just south of the intersection with W Cornelia Avenue, the multi-phase project is replacing the 97-year-old Loyola Press building that used to occupy the site. Developer 3443 N Ashland LLC is working with Studio Dwell Architects on the design of the upcoming structure that joins the recently completed 3421 N Ashland Avenue directly next door which was phase I.
A demolition permit has been issued to remove a two-story multi-unit building, a two-story coach house, and a detached frame garage located at 1809 W Grand Avenue in the West Town neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been listed as Nicole Napper Planrise LLC.
This week, YIMBY attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use building in Fulton Market District. This new development features new ground-level retail topped by offices on the upper floors. Continuing the trend of high-amenity, high-flexibility office space to be built in Fulton Market, the 200,000 square-foot structure highlights the neighborhood’s increasing densification and expanding urban footprint. Although only 11 floors, the 178-foot-tall development by Sterling Bay still measures up to many of the surrounding projects and planned developments.
New permits have been issued for the residential conversion of the St. Boniface church at 1356 W Chestnut Street in West Town. Located on the northeast corner with N Noble Street, the long-standing church will finally see work begin on its units after multiple years of setbacks which involved the preservation of some interior elements previously set to be removed. Developer ZSD Corp is leading the project and working with SPACE Architects + Planners on this first phase of work.
