Initial work has commenced for West Loop‘s 932 W Randolph Street, where L3 Capital is planning the renovation of an existing three-story masonry building, as well as a new three-story addition. YIMBY previously reported a zoning approval for the proposal, which included changing the property’s designation from C1-2 to DX-5. Programming will include retail space at ground level, with office space on the two floors above. The Commission on Chicago Landmarks also deemed that the project and its design would not have an adverse affect on the area’s historical context.
Construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building at 2816 N Southport Avenue in West DePaul. The owner, filed under David Berger, is planning three total residences. Additional features include a rooftop deck and stairway enclosure, a basement, a rear open porch, and a detached three-car garage with its own roof deck.
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.
