Foundation work has begun for a 12-story building at 1630 South Wabash Avenue in South Loop, with pilings now being installed. This mixed-use development by CMK Companies, replacing a vacant lot directly east of the CTA tracks, will feature 149 rental units above ground-floor retail. A permit for the foundation and partial superstructure was issued in late October, followed by the issuance of the full permit in early December.
Initial neighborhood meetings have been held for the community spaces below the upcoming Red and Purple Line Modernization (RPM) across the north side. The project will run below and adjacent to the new track from W Lawrence Avenue in the south to W Ardmore Avenue in the north. Efforts are being led by the Chicago Transit Authority who brought on local firm Site Design Group to execute the work.
A renovation project is in progress at 4311 West Maypole Avenue in West Garfield Park, with permits issued by the City of Chicago on January 8. The project will involve comprehensive interior updates to an existing two-story masonry brick building that houses two dwelling units. The project’s budget is $79,400.
Renderings have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 370 N Carpenter Street in the West Loop. Developer Sterling Bay held a community meeting for the project earlier this week where we received a first look at what the finished product may look like. Sitting on the intersection with W Kinzie Street, the project replaces a small industrial building with a new tower designed by HPA.
With most of the cladding now in place, facade installation continues to progress for a six-story mixed-use building located at 1800 W Berenice Avenue in North Center. The project, managed by Landrosh Development and designed by Sullivan Goulette Wilson Architects, stands 80 feet tall, spans nearly 60,000 square feet, and occupies a 12,191-square-foot site.
