The charcoal metal exterior is coming to fruition for a new five-story condominium building located at 15 N Elizabeth Street in West Loop. The project has been planned by a three-party coalition of developers, consisting of Ranquist Development Group, Jodi Development, and Campbell Coyle.

A permit was approved last week for a new three-story residential building at 1444 West Winona Street in the Uptown neighborhood. The owner is listed as 1444 West Winona LLC, and the current plans indicate this project will yield four total dwelling units and will have a finished basement. The building will feature front and back decks on the first and second stories and a rooftop deck with an accompanying stair enclosure. The project also has plans for a detached four-car garage with its own rooftop deck. The planned structure will replace an existing building.
In 19th place in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is a 22-story mixed-use building at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District.

Ultimately, this new edifice will rise just over 242 feet to its architectural pinnacle, while offering 1,000 square feet of ground-level retail space and 279 rental units above.
The Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley House has been selected as a finalist of the city’s Adopt-A-Landmark grant. Located at 6427 S St. Lawrence Avenue in West Woodlawn, the home was recently awarded landmark status in February with its plaque being installed in July on what would have been Emmett’s 80th birthday. The restoration and museum efforts are part of an $11 million project led by Blacks In Green which will include the purchase of two adjoining lots.
