Construction permits have been issued for a single-story car wash facility at 4259 S Wells Street in Fuller Park. The owner is Chicago Title Land Trust, whose new commercial development lies on a plot of land that was re-zoned in 2013 from B3-1 Community Shopping Zoning District to Cl-1 Neighborhood Commercial Zoning District. YIMBY covered a planned two-story mixed-used building last week that also resides on the re-designated area.
Demolition is now complete at 166 N Aberdeen Street in West Loop, clearing the way for a new 20-story mixed-use tower by MCZ Development. Standing 241 feet to its pinnacle, the building will house a collection of retail, dining, and offices on the lower floors, with 236 apartments housed above. The project serves as the second and taller phase of a two-part plan, with the first building at 171 N Aberdeen Street completed in 2018.
Zoning has been approved for a mixed-use structure at 1340 W Washington Boulevard in West Loop. Located on the site of the Chicago Journeyman Plumber Local 130 UA campus, the structure will actually be located along W Randolph street, within the 4.1-acre larger campus addressed as 1340 W Washington Boulevard. The larger campus is bound by W Randolph Street, W Washington Boulevard, N Ada Street, N Ogden Avenue, and the recently-completed Plumbers Training Facility to the west. The development is being led by the Chicago Journeyman Plumber Local 130 UA and Chicago Title and Trust Company.
Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story masonry building located at 2038 W 18th Street in Lower West Side‘s Heart of Chicago. While it is unclear what the owner PKD Pilsen Enterprises plans to have replace the mixed-use structure, the site’s zoning designation of C1-2 Neighborhood Commercial District would allow for retail at ground level with apartments above. C1-2 also permits a floor area ratio of 2.2, by which any new construction could have the square footage up to 2.2 times that of the site itself.
Foundation work has begun for a 15-story office tower located at 609 W Randolph Street in West Loop Gate. Planned by Vista Property Group, the 211-foot-tall building will offer 1,770 square feet of retail at ground level, with offices and amenity space on the above floors. The main tower is set to replace a former surface parking lot, while integrating an existing four-story masonry building at 601 West Randolph Street.
