Construction permits have been issued for 18 adjacent three-story townhomes, divided between three buildings at 3122, 3124, and 3126 S Benson Street in Bridgeport. Bensen Place LLC is the filing owner of the homes, which will line a cul-de-sac driveway off of S Benson Street. Each 2,000-square-foot home will come with three bedrooms, a two-car garage on the first floor, and a rooftop terrace. Both the driveway and the homes will replace a previously vacant lot.
The Permit Review Committee, a subcommittee of the Commission on Chicago Landmarks, has approved updated plans for a mixed-use development at 917 W Fulton Market in Fulton Market. The rectangular site spans along N Sangamon Street from W Fulton Market to W Lake Street. The project scope also includes an existing warehouse building at 900 W Lake Street. Fulton Street Companies is the developer behind the proposal.
Remaining brickwork is currently underway for Wrigleyville Lofts, located at 949 W Dakin Street in Lake View. Developed by Draper & Kramer, the seven-story mixed-use project will house 13,000 square feet of retail, partitioned into four available units ranging from 1,400 to 2,500 square feet. The fifth and largest unit will be a nearly 6,000-square-foot Ace Hardware, which previously occupied the one-story building located on the property.
Demolition permits were issued this past week for three-story masonry residence and a detached frame garage, located at 2820 N Rockwell Street in the Avondale neighborhood. The owner is listed under 2820 N Rockwell LLC, whose plans have not been revealed. The property’s zoning designation of RT-4 permits two-flats, townhomes, low-density apartment buildings, and single-family homes. RT-4 also permits a floor area ratio of 1.2, in which any new construction may have up to 1.2 times the square footage of the containing lot. It is not clear whether the owner will seek a zoning change.
