The Mayor’s office announced via press release a new affordable housing project located at 1801 S Wabash Avenue in the Near South Side at the corner of S Wabash Avenue and E 18th Street. According to the release, The Department of Housing has approved the $21 million bond for the new project which will reportedly consist of a gut rehab of a Single-Room Occupancy (SRO) building.
Continuing its rapid ascension, structural work is now past the 400-foot mark for 1000M, a 74-story residential skyscraper in South Loop. At 788 feet in height, the project is being developed by JK Equities, Time Equities, and Oak Capitals. Pivoting from the 506 condominium units originally planned, the residences will now comprise 738 rental apartments.
Initial building permits have been issued for the new wellness center at 2933 W Division Street in Humboldt Park. Located on the southwest corner with N Richmond Street, the project was proposed early last year and moved its way through the Plan Commission and City Council prior to securing the current foundation permits. Developer Humboldt Park Health will replace an empty lot and a single two-flat building with a new angular structure designed by local architecture firm JGMA.
Demolition permits were issued to remove a two-story frame residence along with a detached frame garage located at 2247 W Cullom Avenue in North Center. The permit’s owner is listed as PFH Homes.
A 180,900-square-foot warehouse has been proposed for 328 W 40th Place in Fuller Park, just several blocks south of Guaranteed Rate Field. The project site is being developed by The Missner Group and will replace a currently vacant lot. Designed by Ware Malcomb, the facade will have a colorful facade for an industrial building, with patterns of blue precast concrete wrapping around the rectangular structure. While a tenant has not yet been announced, the interior will be able to accommodate light manufacturing, food packaging, or distribution. As for on-site transportation infrastructure, there will be 35 loading docks and parking for 176 vehicles.
