The Chicago Department of Planning and Development has approved plans for a new mixed-use complex at 4458 S Cicero Avenue in Garfield Ridge. Dubbed the Le Claire Courts, the project would replace a large empty parcel of land owned by the Chicago Housing Authority that is bound by W 45th Street to the south, S Cicero Avenue to the east, the I-55 expressway to the north, and the name-bearing LeClair Courts-Hearst Park to the west. Developers Cabrera Capital Partners and The Habitat Company formed a large design team lead by Solomon Cordwell Buenz Architects for the sprawling project.
A demolition permit has been issued for a three-story, multi-unit building along with a detached garage at 2034 N Wolcott Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been filed under the name Sustainabuild LLC. A permit was issued in late August for a two-story single-family residence with a basement. The property will feature a rooftop deck with a rooftop stair enclosure, as well as a two-car detached garage.
Since YIMBY’s last site prep update in early September, work on ‘The Reed‘ has made significant progress, with its core having now risen substantially above grade. Situated as 234 W Polk Street in South Loop, the 41-story residential building is being developed by Lendlease, and is the second installation in a seven-acre, four-building development known as Southbank. The first to be complete in this larger plan was The Cooper, located directly east and completed in 2018.
Plans for a new residential development have been unveiled for community feedback at 4555 N Dover Street in Uptown. Led by developers Ayman Khalil and Kareem Musawwir, the two-building project is the second attempt to develop a site currently occupied by a one-story glazed tile building which houses a local restaurant. Buying the lot earlier this year for $2 million, the team tapped local firm Axios Architects to design the project that will require special exemptions to be built from the city.
A permit was approved on Friday for a new three-story residential building to be located at 2028 N Sheffield Avenue in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Additionally, the plans feature a detached four-car garage, a basement level, and a rooftop deck with an enclosed stair. The development will replace a previous structure on the site.
