Exterior work has begun for the now topped-out Optima Lakeview, a seven-story mixed-use development situated at 3460 N Broadway in Lakeview East. Previously, the site was occupied by a Treasure Island Foods grocery store and connected parking lot.
The Chicago City Council has approved a mixed-use development located at 1317 N Western Avenue in Wicker Park. Located along N Western Avenue the mid-block vacant lot was once a used car sales lot. Gibbons Construction is the developer behind the proposal.
Renovation permits have been issued to convert a three-story residential building from four to five total units. Located at 2623 N Kimball Avenue in Logan Square, the occupying owner, Matthew Cremins, also plans to build out the building’s basement floor into a living space that will connect to the first-floor unit. It is unclear which floor the new unit will occupy, or how the interior will be partitioned in order to accommodate the new residence.
The Chicago City Council has approved the 8.1-acre North Union megadevelopment in the Near North Side. Generally bounded by the CTA Brown Line tracks and W Oak Street, W Chestnut Street, and N Wells Street, the North Union site will spread across eight acres. Planned by JDL Development, the project site is currently occupied by one- or two-story buildings, parking lots, and an athletic field, all part of the Moody Bible Institute campus. The entire plan reserves 9.4 acres for Moody Bible Institute while turning over the remaining 8.1 acres over to JDL.
