A permit was approved earlier this week for a new three-story residential building to be located at 4311 S Indiana Avenue in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood. This will be an owner-occupied building. The owner is listed as Stephen Talty and plans indicate this project is a frame structure and will yield three total units and a detached three-car masonry garage. The development will replace a vacant lot.
This week, a land acquisition deal was successfully closed for 170 N Green Street in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. The transaction was carried out between CRG, the development and real estate arm of Clayco; Shapack Partners, a Fulton Market-based real estate development company; and Bridgford Foods. Once occupied by the 156,000-square-foot Bridgford Foods processing facility, the 1.5-acre site will give way to a massive new mixed-use development co-planned by CRG and Shapack.
An upcoming development just outside of Chicago is leading the way towards innovative green development. Named Eco Terra, the planned construction consists of a seven-story, 348-unit mixed-use apartment complex. The project was initially named “Garden Station” and is now under construction. This construction has distinguished itself as the largest project in the country to earn key passive house and net zero certifications.
