Coming in at 28th is the first renovation project in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end construction countdown, the 13-story former Bridgeview Bank Building, located at 4753 N Broadway in Uptown. Originally known as the Sheridan Bank and Trust Building, the classically-styled edifice was designed nearly 100 years ago by the Chicago-based Marshall and Fox. Four years after its initial completion in 1924, another four floors (and a mechanical penthouse) were added, bringing the final height to 151 feet.
Structured Development has broken ground on the second phase of its mixed-use The Shops at Big Deahl development at 1450 N Dayton Street in the Near North Side. The four-building project, whose first phase recently delivered a three-story indoor rock climbing gym on the easternmost edge of the site, received zoning approval for the remaining three buildings which will be mostly residential with a small retail space and public park also built in the complex. The second phase includes two shorter residential buildings on the north end of the site fronting W Blackhawk Street.
A permit was approved yesterday for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 6004 S Rhodes Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood. The owner is listed as TSE Enterprises LLC and plans indicate this project will have a number of amenities including an elevator, a rooftop deck, front balconies and rear wood decks on levels two through four, as well as an eight-car garage at the basement level. The lot for the proposed project is currently empty.
Claiming the 29th spot in the 2021 Chicago YIMBY year-end countdown is Fulton Street Companies and Intercontinental Real Estate’s 1045 on Fulton development in the West Loop. Under construction, the mixed-use project is located on the corner of W Fulton Street and N Aberdeen Street and comes to us from local design firm Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture. Topping out at a final height of 147 feet, the building will focus on office space with nearby projects quickly leasing out to major companies.
