With most of the exterior work nearing a conclusion, the final look of the 15-story 609 W Randolph Street is materializing in West Loop Gate. Most of the remaining glass has been installed since YIMBY’s last update, and the only major architectural feature awaiting installation is a series of V-shaped metal trusses clinging to the third through fifth floors.
The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for a new residential development at 2046 W Irving Park Road in North Center. Located near the intersection with N Lincoln Avenue and N Damen Avenue, the lot is currently occupied by a vacant lot and two-story residential building that will be demolished to make way for the SPACE Architects + Planners building being developed by Campbell Street Asset Management.
A demolition permit has been issued for a five-story masonry located at 4834 S Halsted Street in the New City neighborhood. The permit’s owners have been listed as Zalcantar LLC.
The Chicago City Council has approved two developments consisting of three buildings in the West Loop. The two include the life-science high-rise at 400 N Elizabeth Street and a pair of mixed-use skyscrapers at 315 N May Street and 1112 W Carroll Avenue. The two approvals mark a move forward in densifying the western edge of the rapidly growing neighborhood and brings both a step closer to the groundbreaking. As the post-pandemic demand continues to be unpredictable, the two will join millions of square feet of office space and thousands of residential units being delivered and proposed in the area.
