Construction on Cascade has topped out 396 feet over Lakeshore East. Officially addressed at 455 E Waterside Drive, Cascade is part of the larger Lakeshore East development within the Parcels IJKL. The site sits between N Harbor Drive and Lake Shore Drive, just south of the multi-level Wacker Drive. The towers are being developed by Lendlease and Magellan Development Group, with bKL Architecture in charge of the design.
Renovation work is approaching completion for a two-story commercial building at 942 W Randolph Street, located in West Loop. The occupying owner, filed under Michael Bisbee in the project’s renovation permits, is planning to repurpose the former masonry warehouse to a large assembly restaurant, spanning over 14,000 square feet in total. The development will also host a street-facing outdoor patio on the second floor.
Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 5528 W Gettysburg Street in Jefferson Park. The owner, filed under 5249 Milwaukee LLC, plans three residences for the building, as well as parking for seven vehicles. The permit’s corresponding property appears to match that of 5241-49 N Milwaukee Avenue, whose owners in 2018 had requested a zoning ordinance to convert the zoning designation from B3-1 to B2-3. However, this past proposal listed four total units and eight parking spaces, suggesting that the project scope has since been updated.
Work has yet to commence for 354 N Union Avenue, a 32-story residential building located in Fulton River District. Ranking at number 23 in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown of tallest new developments, the building is poised to stand 410 feet high at its pinnacle.
Renderings have been revealed for a proposed 47-story tower, located at 640 W Washington Boulevard in West Loop Gate. The site is located along W Washington Boulevard, bound by the Kennedy Expressway to the west, W Court Place to the north, and N Des Plaines Street to the east. The new development will replace an existing surface parking lot.
