As construction continues to makes rapid gains, full permits have now been issued for a 19-story mixed-use building at 210 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market. LG Development Group has planned to construct a 214-foot-tall structure that will sit on an L-shaped site. The building will include 10,700 square feet of retail space and 363 apartment units. The scope and design have changed slightly prior to construction, having reduced the total units from 414 residences and the height from 239 feet.

Initial construction permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 5159 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square.
