Cool CHICAGO | North Union (Moody Bible Campus) | 2,680 Residential Units

Seems like a project of this scale deserves its own thread...

Nearly 2,700 homes planned for Near North Side site
The project would be one of the biggest residential developments in Chicago in decades, and the largest for its builder, JDL Development.


JDL Development plans nearly 2,700 homes on Near North Side property it would buy from the Moody Bible Institute, one of the biggest residential developments in Chicago in decades.

The Chicago-based developer will unveil its proposal for the 8.1-acre site at a Nov. 12 community meeting, according to emails from the Department of Planning and Development and Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd). The emails were short on specifics, but did include a key, previously unreported detail: The project northwest of Moody’s campus would encompass about 2,680 residential units.

Called North Union, the development on the Moody property would be bounded roughly by CTA Brown and Purple Line tracks, Oak, Chestnut and Wells streets. It would include a mix of low-, mid- and high-rise buildings, 30,000 square feet of commercial space and about 1.3 acres of public open space, according to the emails. Two towers, one 600 feet tall, would rise on the northwest corner of the site, said JDL President Jim Letchinger.
