Brickwork is progressing rapidly at 1400 W Monroe Street, a seven-story condominium mid-rise underway near the southwest corner of West Loop. Dubbed “1400 Monroe” and planned by JK Equities, the residential project will yield a total of 42 residences, ranging from two- to four-bedroom units. These listings begin at approximately $800,000 for a one-bedroom, $1 million for a two-bedroom, and $2.5 million for a four-bedroom penthouse.
The City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has announced its 24 appointments to the newly-launched Committee on Design. The design review and approval process for Chicago’s largest construction projects will be enhanced and streamlined through this volunteer Committee on Design consisting of the city’s top urban design professionals, according to DPD commissioner Maurice Cox.
Since YIMBY’s last update, brick facade work has made significant progress at Broadway Youth Center, a new five-story interdisciplinary wellness center by Howard Brown Health. Situated at 1023 W Irving Park Road in Lake View, the project will be geared towards LGBTQ youth ages 12-24, particularly those who do not have stable housing situations.
Work has officially broken ground at 410 S Wabash Avenue in The Loop, where developer LMC has planned a 25-story mixed-use tower. The project is set to yield 8,000 square feet of ground-level retail and 344 apartments on the upper floors. These units will be divided into 220 studios, 60 one-bedrooms, 61 two-bedrooms, and three three-bedrooms.
Plans have been revealed for a proposed mixed-use development at 2913 W Belmont Avenue in Avondale. Currently occupied by a single-family home, the property is located midblock between N Richmond Street and N Francisco Avenue fronting W Belmont Avenue. James Noonan of Castle Masonry Incorporated is the developer behind the proposal.
