New permits have been issued for a four-story residential building to be located at 714 W Aldine Avenue in Lake View East near Boystown. The owner is listed under 712-714 Aldine, LLC. The permit lists Michael S Cox as the architect of record. No plans or renderings have been made public, however, the permit indicates that this will be a masonry build with a total of six units. The building will include both a basement and a roof deck. The property will include a detached six-vehicle garage with a flat roof and a six-foot-tall wrought iron fence around the property.
Initial caisson and foundation preparation can be seen for a 16-story commercial building at 311 W Huron Street in River North. This upcoming retail and office building, planned by North Wells Capital, had scored $88 million lease with the major tenant Spins earlier this year, jumpstarting the now-underway project. The company will take up occupancy in the top three floors of the 226-foot-tall building. The edifice is replacing a former parking lot just west of the elevated Chicago Transit Authority L tracks. Since the last update, a tower crane permit has also been issued, adding to a new pocket of cranes in the northwest corner of River North once it’s installed in the coming weeks.
