Welcomes to Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown. Now in its third year, we invite you to come back every day this month as we count down new tall developments populating our skyline. Similar to years past, we will showcase 31 projects across the city in alignment with our sister sites like New York YIMBY.
Exterior renovation work continues to take shape for the new Guinness Taproom and Brewery in Fulton Market. Owned by Fred Latsko, the former Pennsylvania Railroad Terminal Building at 375 N Morgan Street is being developed by Guinness as part of a deal that was finalized last year. Once a popular street art canvas, the converted beer hub will now contain a 10-barrel brewery, a pub, and a restaurant serving local chef cuisine.
Permits were issued on Monday for a three-story residential building located at 1325 West Carmen Avenue in Uptown. The permits for the development were issued to TSE Enterprises LLC and will involve five dwelling units with front and rear balconies on the first and second floors, a basement, a shared rooftop deck, and a detached one-story masonry garage. The site will offer three additional spaces via a carport.
The lower levels of the superstructure are taking shape for 360 N Green Street, a 24-story mixed-use tower at the northeast corner of Fulton Market. The 399-foot-tall tower is being developed by Sterling Bay directly east of the Guinness Brewery, already in progress.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the construction and renovation of new baseball diamonds at 1987 E Hayes Drive within Jackson Park. Located towards the east side of the park across Wooded Island and near the Statue of the Republic, the project continues the vision of the park’s 2018 framework plan. The plan is being brought forward by the Chicago Park District as it continues to construct a better public green space for locals and visitors alike as the construction of the Obama Presidential Center.
