It won't happen for awhile. I think they just started accepting bids for the work in the last month only.

A 9 story, 94 unit building has received a permit for new construction on a vacant lot at 459 W Division (Division & Cleveland).

This is part of another phase of Parkside at Old Town.

From a website talking about it from March:

Across the street, it looks like Brinshore is dusting off plans for Division and Clybourn. This is a 7 story, 84 unit building with retail.

^ Wow.

The old Cabrini Green area looks like it's about to go butt crazy in the next few years. I am excited to see this area transform from gunfire warzone to a nice urban neighborhood worthy of a new L stop.

I am absolutely certain I saw a rendering of it a few months ago, but now it seems absolutely nowhere to be found...........anyhow, hope it hasn't changed from that rendering.....


^ I know. This could actually be a really nice area by the end of the decade.......exciting times....

Nice. Is there an exact address, or if it's at the corner - which corner?


Also, it looks like 1323 S Michigan (~Michigan & 13th) is seeking zoning change to convert to 30 units. Currently 7 stories and possibly unoccupied and owned by a bank via foreclosure.

Wouldn't the LPO also ban private development at the US Steel Southworks location now that LSD has been extended southward?

^I've been chuckling about that all week, about how Dan McCaffery, having insisted that the new US 41 roadway be called Lake Shore Drive, is now hoist by his own petard.

Of course, the practical effect of the ordinance is nil. The Plan Commission will approve whatever he wants.

But if Friends of the Parks wants to be intellectually consistent, they should also be suing McCaffery to preserve the slag heaps from development.

FotP is pretty consistent but I don't know about intellectual.

Is this the development you are referring to?

If so, it looks good. Do you know on what corner it will be built?

http://www.brinshore.com/dev/clybourn-division/

EDIT: I answered my own question. I scrolled further down on the website, and I see that it is being built on the triangle-shaped corner lot that currently holds the "Urban Farm" or whatever it is called. This is great news. I cannot stand that farm being there. Not that I am against urban farming (I am a huge supporter of the concept in general) but I dont like the farm being located right there.

The development looks decent enough, although I wish they were actually holding the corner with a true corner-shaped building. The building I see in the design has one of those concave corners that will allow the corner to sport a small park-like area. Not bad at all but I like the hard-corner look myself.

Baronvonellis Jun 27, 2014 7:41 PM

Looks like where the urban farm is now.

Updated construction data 1/1/2014 - 6/26/2014 from New Construction building permits:

* 3865 units in new multi unit buildings (1997 units in Mixed Use buildings, 461 units in transitional living/other type, 1407 units in purely residential buildings).

* 276 new single family homes

Mr Downtown Jun 27, 2014 8:48 PM

Any permits issued for 1100 S. Clark? This week they've been pulling out old foundations and crap near the surface, the urban equivalent of grubbing.

Isn't 1100 S Clark where Target is...?

wierdaaron Jun 27, 2014 9:09 PM

Between Target and AMLI 900. There's been a render for a residential midsize (unsure rent or condo) but no concretes.

Wow, those are healthy numbers. Wonder if we will eclipse 10,000 units/year next year? Maybe we can still break that threshold with a strong second half of the year?

SamInTheLoop Jun 27, 2014 9:25 PM

1000 or 1100 S Clark
 
Just walked past.....this is the JDL project....design by HP.....469 units....saw 29 stories quoted but looked more like 25 to me.....overall nice design but with a shitty motor court.....at the moment a dozer, 2 excavators and a smallish piece of Thatcher equipment on site, the last of which my guess being for soil borings.....hope we move to foundation work quickly on this one....the south loop is waking up at last from its long slumber...it's time to build (1001 S State - open invitation for you to join the festivities)....

Hewlet-Packard or Haymes-Pappageorge?

A bit off-topic but a little relevant to the lakefront/park preservationist against private development angle, what do people think about the Argo tea pavilion in Connors Park?

Background: http://chicago.curbed.com/archives/2...experiment.php

It's a public park still, but with a private Argo tea restaurant built inside. I'm going to have a chance to speak with the CEO of Argo about it, so I'm curious about some takes other than my own.
