The Chicago City Council has approved plans for a residential development at 4447 N Hazel Street in Uptown. Located on a corner lot, the project will replace an existing church at the intersection of N Hazel Street and W Sunnyside Avenue. Longford Construction is the developer behind the proposal.
Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story masonry building at 2130 S Central Park Avenue, located near the southern edge of North Lawndale. It is unclear what the owner, EAM Properties LLC, is planning to have replace the former convent building. However, the property is zoned for RT-4, which allows for two-flats, townhouses, low-density apartment buildings, and single family homes. RT-4 also permits a floor area ratio of up to 1.2, whereby any new development may have up to 1.2 times the square footage of the lot itself.
Construction has completed for the Rosie, a mixed-use development at 1461 S Blue Island Avenue in Little Italy. The project has been planned by FLATS LLC, a subsidiary of Cedar Street Companies, in partnership with Origin Investments. Previously a vacant lot, the site lies within a federal opportunity zone that grants developers tax incentives for developing in economically distressed areas.
The Chicago City Council has given the final approval for demolition of the existing structure at 1020 W Randolph Street in the West Loop. Located within Fulton-Randolph Market District, and the northeast corner of W Randolph Street and N Carpenter Street, the current site conditions consist of an existing one-story bank with drive-through that is the subject of this demolition approval. L3 Capital is the developer behind the project.
Renovation permits have been issued for an existing four-story residential building located at 20 S Hamlin Boulevard in West Garfield Park. KEMT LLC is the listed owner of the currently unoccupied building. Plans include increasing the unit count from seven to eight, updated interior finishes, minor exterior site work, structural repairs and reinforcements, and new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
