Work has reached full height at 508 E Pershing Road, a four-story mixed-use building that recently topped out in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood. Planned by The Community Builders Inc, the development will house 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail with 53 residential units on the upper floors. Under the Chicago Housing Authority, 36 of these units will be affordable, with the remaining 17 residences as market rate.
Two construction permits have been issued for a pair of two-story residential buildings located at 4735 and 4737 S Michigan Avenue in Bronzeville. Set to replace a vacant grass lot, the duo is being co-developed by GT Alternatives LLC and Kale Kakhiani. The new structures will come with three dwellings each, along with a basement, a two-car detached garage, and a separate ground-level parking spot.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a mixed-use development at 1838 N Elston Avenue in Bucktown. Located on a midblock site, the property is bounded by a one-story commercial building to the north, N Elston Avenue to the east, a two-story commercial structure to the south, and N Besly Court to the west. The Lincoln Yards development is located across the street to the east, while the Kennedy Expressway is nearby to the west. The property currently holds a one-story commercial building. JAB Real Estate is the developer behind the proposal.
The Community Development Commission has approved $2 million in Tax Increment Financing (TIF) money for the Oakwood Shores Phase 3 development in Bronzeville.

The first plot is at 616 E Pershing Road, with the second parcel located at 552 E 38th Street. Both sites are currently vacant parcels. The Community Builders is the developer behind the project.
