A new construction permit was issued on Tuesday for a three-story residential building located at 4129 S Wabash Avenue in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood. The owner of the permit is listed as 4123 S Wabash LLC, and current plans indicate this project will produce three total units. This will be a masonry build and will have open metal porches at the rear, as well as a six-foot-tall wooden fencing and three parking spots. The building will replace a vacant lot.
Structural steel has reached its full height for a three-story addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View, having been co-planned by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development. Connected to the original stadium, this new 22,000-square-foot enclosure at 1012 W Addison Street will house a Draftkings sportsbook betting venue along with multiple dining options, replacing the former Captain Morgan Club (later the Fantasy Draftkings Sports Zone) at the southeast corner of the stadium block. The project comes at the heels of City Council’s recent reversal of its sports betting ban, thereby greenlighting such operations at Chicago’s five professional stadiums.

The new construction project is situated at the border between residential and commercial zones, and will replace a former pair of masonry low-rise buildings.
