Construction has begun on two residential buildings as part of the larger Southbridge development in the Near South Side near Chinatown. The six-story structures are addressed as 2310 S State Street and 2344 S State Street. The master-planned development will create over 900 affordable housing units to serve the southern side of Chicago, replacing the previous Harold Ickes Homes demolished in 2010. The site has frontage along State Street between W 23rd Street and W 24th Street. The nearest public transportation is the 29 CTA bus line running past the development on State Street with stops at 23rd and 24th Streets. Additionally, the Cermak-McCormick Place CTA station, serviced by the Green Line, is a five-minute walk away.
YIMBY stopped by 167 North Green Street earlier this month to check up on the new 17-story, 725,000-square-foot office development in West Loop. The site is located less than two blocks south of Fulton Market‘s central spine, which has seen a number of high-profile projects recently, many of which also contain office space.
Permits were filed this week for a four-story development at 1733 Mohawk Street in Near North Side‘s Old Town neighborhood. The narrow site is located along the tree-capped N Mohawk Street, on the block between W Eugenie Street and W Menomonee Street.
YIMBY has updated construction photos for the nearly complete 101-story Vista Tower, designed by Chicago-based Jeanne Gang and developed by Magellan Group. The 1.9 million-square-foot tower is now Chicago’s third tallest building at 1,191 feet, outpacing even the nearby Aon Center that previously stood unrivaled in the Lakeshore East neighborhood. The mixed-use building’s high profile also stems from the unique frustum-stack composition that forms its massing, adding to the collection of bold designs that the city knows well.
