YIMBY has a snapshot of what Chicago could look like ten years from now, based on a list of developments at different stages. Several of the projects are much more plausible and already underway, whereas others are still conceptual.
Permits were approved last month for a four-story residential building at 3728 Lake Shore Drive in Lake View East, Chicago. Located between W Grace Street and W Waveland Avenue, the interior lot is a 15-minute walk to the Addison CTA L station, serviced by the Red Line. 3726 N Lake Shore Drive LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications, reporting $8 million as the cost for the overall development.
YIMBY spotted what appears to be a test facade piece on the lot of 1325 W Fulton Market, a project developed by Sterling Bay and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Located at the west end of the rising Fulton Market neighborhood, the site is located at the corner of W Fulton Market and N Ada Street, just across from Sterling Bay’s Fulton West at 1330 W Fulton Market. Nearby bus transit is a nine-minute walk southwest to the 9 route’s Ashland & Lake stop, as well as a nine-minute walk southeast to the 19 route’s Washington & Racine bus stop. Nearby CTA L stops include a seven-minute walk southwest to Ashland Station and a ten-minute walk southeast to Morgan Station, both of which are serviced by the Green and Pink Lines.
Permits were filed recently for the Alcove Wicker Park phase of Vermillion Development’s 55-unit residential project at 1650 W Division Street, consisting of 12 townhouses. In total, the project is expected to cost $15 million to build. Vermillion Wicker Park Development, LLC is listed as the owner, while Howard Hirsch of Hirsch MPG is listed as the architect of record.
Permits were approved last month for a five-story mixed-use building at 946 W Wellington Avenue in Lake View East, Chicago. Located between W Shubert Avenue and W Diversey Parkway, the interior lot is steps from the Wellington CTA L station, serviced by the Brown and Purple Lines and five blocks south of the Belmont station, which is also serviced by the Red Line. Advocate-Aurora Illinois Masonic Medical Center is listed as the owner behind the applications, reporting $20.5 million as the cost for the development.
