Since YIMBY’s last update, demolition has fully wrapped up at the site of a planned nine-story building planned by John Buck Company and Free Market Ventures in Uptown. Located at 4601 N Broadway Street, the mixed-use building is set to house 12,000 square feet of ground-level retail, with 200 apartments on the upper floors. Located at the corner of Broadway and Wilson, the site was previously occupied by a one-story masonry commercial building.
Full construction permits have now been filed for 920 E 43rd Street, where developer DOM Properties Investment is planning a four-story mixed-use building. The Oakland development will house 33 total residential units atop 3,800 square feet of retail space. The residences will range from one-bedroom up to three-bedroom layouts.
Brickwork is progressing rapidly at 1400 W Monroe Street, a seven-story condominium mid-rise underway near the southwest corner of West Loop. Dubbed “1400 Monroe” and planned by JK Equities, the residential project will yield a total of 42 residences, ranging from two- to four-bedroom units. These listings begin at approximately $800,000 for a one-bedroom, $1 million for a two-bedroom, and $2.5 million for a four-bedroom penthouse.
The City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has announced its 24 appointments to the newly-launched Committee on Design. The design review and approval process for Chicago’s largest construction projects will be enhanced and streamlined through this volunteer Committee on Design consisting of the city’s top urban design professionals, according to DPD commissioner Maurice Cox.
Since YIMBY’s last update, brick facade work has made significant progress at Broadway Youth Center, a new five-story interdisciplinary wellness center by Howard Brown Health. Situated at 1023 W Irving Park Road in Lake View, the project will be geared towards LGBTQ youth ages 12-24, particularly those who do not have stable housing situations.
