New Construction Cabrini Green ChicagoThe former site of the old Cabrini-Green housing project could soon see new development. Developers hope to bring in a mixed-income project of nearly 500 residential units to the corner of Larrabee Street and Clybourn Avenue.

Developers recently filed a zoning application with the city to turn the wedge-shaped land into an 18-story tower followed by two mid-rise apartment buildings and townhouses. While around 200 of the residences would be market rate apartments and townhomes, another 80 or so would be affordable-rate and the rest would go to those on waiting lists for the Chicago Housing Authority.

While the land in question once belonged to the Near North Career Metropolitan High School, public housing towers also once stood in the area. They

A new 47-story tower could be coming to Michigan Avenue. Sterling Bay recently announced plans for a mixed-use tower at 300 N. Michigan Avenue. According to local leaders, the proposed project includes plans for 290 residential units topping 280 hotel rooms.

The new tower is planned for the space currently occupied by a four-story building the developer already owns at East Wacker Place and Michigan. While the smaller building is vacant right now, it once housed a Walgreens, RadioShack and Subway.

Sterling Bay is the same Chicago developer currently pushing a massive new project at Lincoln Yards. The developer is close to gaining final city approval for that project. The $6 billion development sits along the Chicago River’s north branch.

New Chinatown DevelopmentDevelopers have their eye on sites in Chinatown and Pilsen that could mean bringing new life to the area. In one case, a developer aims to turn a vacant old warehouse into a new 200-room hotel and commercial space at the corner of Grove Street and Cermak Road. 

Dubbed Hoyt Square, that plan also involves constructing a nearby parking lot and riverwalk. The old building has stood mostly vacant for about ten years, with past proposals and concepts for the site never taking off. Currently only two hotels exist in Chinatown.

Just a couple of blocks away, yet another plan involves constructing a complex of six buildings in East Pilsen. The opportunity includes using mostly vacant land in the area, and transforming it into five buildings filled with more

A proposed multi-million dollar development just got a major nod from the Chicago Plan Commission, putting it closer to reality. The idea is to transform more than 50-acres along the Chicago River’s North Branch into a massive new development.

Despite some concern from area residents, the commission gave its approval to Lincoln Yards, an ambitious $6 million plan to create a campus of skyscrapers on the North Side. In all, the plan calls for the inclusion of 6,000 new residential units.

The first phase of Lincoln Yards aims to bring new office buildings, parking and retail space to the area. The larger plan also calls for new infrastructure to support the massive complex, including new bridges over the Chicago River.

Condo Tower West Loop Sulo Development was already planning to build a 9-story, 28-unit condo building at 19 N. May in Chicago’s rapidly growing West Loop neighborhood. Now, plans have changed and their earlier proposal has been expanded to include 18 stories and 73 condominium residences. 

If the name sounds familiar, it’s probably because Sulo was also the company behind Hayden West Loop, a luxury condo building on the same block that’s nearly sold out already. 

With the new McDonald’s headquarters now finished and plenty of other office space in the works for Fulton Market and the surrounding area, it’s no wonder why the West Loop real estate market continues to remain red hot. 

According to Crain’s, Sulo will still need City Council to approve a zoning change
