Work is continuing to progress for the adaptive reuse of an existing art-deco style building at 3115 N Broadway in Lakeview East. With JSM Venture Inc. as the owner, the existing five-story parking garage will have two new stories added and be retrofitted to accommodate ground-level retail and 72 apartment units.
Final facade work is underway for 332 N Michigan Avenue, a three-story mixed-use renovation at the northeast in the corner of The Loop. The building was damaged in a fire last year, requiring extensive interior and exterior repairs. Permits to replace the street-facing facade and renovate the inside were issued in November of 2020 under the name 926, LLC.
Exterior work has begun for the now topped-out Optima Lakeview, a seven-story mixed-use development situated at 3460 N Broadway in Lakeview East. Previously, the site was occupied by a Treasure Island Foods grocery store and connected parking lot.
The Chicago City Council has approved a mixed-use development located at 1317 N Western Avenue in Wicker Park. Located along N Western Avenue the mid-block vacant lot was once a used car sales lot. Gibbons Construction is the developer behind the proposal.
Renovation permits have been issued to convert a three-story residential building from four to five total units. Located at 2623 N Kimball Avenue in Logan Square, the occupying owner, Matthew Cremins, also plans to build out the building’s basement floor into a living space that will connect to the first-floor unit. It is unclear which floor the new unit will occupy, or how the interior will be partitioned in order to accommodate the new residence.
