Exterior work is wrapping up for Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation‘s Emmett Street Apartments in Logan Square. Located at 2614 N Emmett Street, the seven-story mixed-use building is set to house 4,300 square feet of ground-floor retail, 100 affordable units, and office space for building management. Prior to development, the 0.9-acre property was occupied by a surface-level parking lot.
The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has approved the preliminary landmark recommendation for the Muddy Waters House at 4339 S Lake Park Avenue in North Kenwood. Built in 1891, the brick two-flat sits on a traditional Chicago residential lot and is placed midblock between E 43rd Street and E 44th Street.
Permits have been issued for a two-story residential building at 9230 S Brandon Avenue in the South Chicago neighborhood. Claretian Associates Inc. is the owner behind the projects, whose plans indicate two units and a basement. The building was already partially complete, with the shell and core built in 2008 under a separate permit. This other permit had been filed by a separate owner and was originally meant to house just one unit.
The Permit Review Committee, a subcommittee of the Commission on Chicago Landmarks, has approved the mixed-use development proposed at 210 N Aberdeen Street in the West Loop. Consisting of an irregularly-shaped site, the property consists of an empty lot at the intersection of W Lake Street and N Aberdeen Street, the historic Arthur Harris Building along N Aberdeen Street located in the Fulton-Randolph Market Historic District, and a few one-story masonry buildings behind Arthur Harris fronting N May Street. LG Development Group is the developer behind the proposal.
Preliminary site work can be seen moving ahead for Aon Center‘s plaza renovation, situated at 200 E Randolph Street in New Eastside.

Aon Center’s owner 601W Companies is overseeing the transformation, expected to cost roughly $6.5 million to complete.
