New construction building permit was issued for 5151 N Lincoln Ave -- Lincoln & Foster. The current 1 and 2 story buildings will be torn down and replaced with a new 5 story building with 42 units, 20 indoor parking spaces, and ground floor retail.

This should scale nicely with the 4 story building next door and the 4 story building across the street to the north. Looks like it should get rid of most of the ugly surface lot on Foster part of this property too and keep an alleyway

The design is blah, but the added people and building density to the area is decent

Via https://blockclubchicago.org/2020/01...oster-avenues/



P.S. This same company has or had plans to build a new 5 story (60 foot tall), 40 unit building just north of this intersection at 5214 N Lincoln Ave -- https://chicagoyimby.com/2021/01/zon...ln-square.html . It would replace a 1 story building (https://www.google.com/maps/place/52...!4d-87.6926519) which has already been demolished. Hopefully this can happen soo too.

^ while the increased density is nice, it's still a shame that the handsome old red brick pre-war building with terra cotta accents is coming down for redevelopment instead of the craptacular 70s walgreens or dunkin donuts strip mall on the two opposite corners on the west side of foster.

Agree. Also, in my PS the other building the same company has planned is for the strip mall is adjacent to the right of the strip mall on the right in the street view link you sent

Hotel planned for West Loop landmark

43 mins ago



The deal begins the redevelopment of a building that was formerly the headquarters of MB Financial Bank, but has been vacant for over a decade as the surrounding area has changed dramatically. The Neighborhood Hotel Company, which launched its first location in Lincoln Park in 2020, plans to convert the upper floors of its West Loop property into 80 apartment-style hotel units, which it says is the company’s largest project to date. said Jonathan Gordon, CEO of Neighborhood Hotels.

“The business plan is to provide a well-designed basecamp for travelers to immerse themselves in the neighborhood, with all the comforts of a vacation rental and the quality of a hotel,” Gordon said. This is a special building and one of the last historic assets in the West Loop that has yet to be redeveloped.”

In addition to the Lincoln Park location at 2616 N. Clark Street, Gordon opened the Neighborhood Hotel outside New Buffalo, Michigan, redeveloping the former Italian-American Sports Hall of Fame in Little Italy into a 35-unit hotel and recently purchased another property in a different location in downtown New Buffalo.

But no project is more ambitious than 801 W. Madison. Gordon plans to convert his floor of the building’s long-untouched office into a hotel unit with a full kitchen, washer and dryer.
...

The 801 W. Madison building became a Chicago landmark in 2012, joining a long list of former neighborhood bank buildings that the city began designating as landmarks five years ago. The West Loop Building was built in his 1911 and refurbished in 1928, adding a new façade and renovating the first his second floor Grand Banking Hall. Today, the building is adjacent to Mariano’s Grocery Store and a luxury apartment building, Kitty’s Corner at Whole Foods.


“It’s frustrating to see this building dormant for so long. It’s amazing to know it’s coming back to life,” said Chacon. And it’s a real shame that the gateway[to Madison]has long fallen apart.”

Great news for a very attractive building. It would be wonderful if they could restore the cornice in some way.

They already did restore the cornice; Crain's is using an old photo for some reason.

The developer of Gateway (the development with Mariano's and a residential tower) used an Adopt-A-Landmark bonus to get additional floor area. 801 W Madison was right next door, so they got it designated as a landmark and then they got the cornice restored a few years later.

I believe 801 W Madison was under separate ownership, but the owners of that building apparently were cooperative with the landmarking - it may have lowered their tax bill, but usually owners don't want to give up the flexibility to tear down in the future.

That is one of the most poorly written articles I have read. EVER. I must have been AI.

No mention what happens with the banking hall. Seems like an opportunity for a restaurant.

Yes, the original article was in Crain's and this appears to be a "cheater copy" with just enough scrambling to defeat the copyright laws or detection software etc.

What a perfect fit for that lot! We need more of that. Also, I think it’s funny that in the rendering they included the under-construction 900 W Randolph lol.

Last week they announced they were pulling out of a prior commitment of a store in Oak Park stating that the building could not be configured to their needs (old Marshall Fields/Borders on Lake and Harlem). I call bullsh*t; I think they were waiting for what they could do in Fulton Market.

I'd be 100 percent OK with letting Morris Adjmi design every Fulton Market project from here on out.

I think this project captures why Fulton Market is extremely attractive. The area takes fine-grain urbanism and blends it with large-scale developments, which results in an environment that feels both extensive and intimate. Although fine-grain and large-scale developments are usually seen as opposites, the combination of those two elements is present in London, Tokyo, and Toronto. In the US however, the combination only really exists in NYC & Philly. It's also part of the reason why so many downtowns across the country feel dull. Even in Chicago, walking around the Gold Coast and the Loop is much more enjoyable that walking around Streeterville and South Loop, even though all those areas have dense skyscrapers. Strong Towns wrote a pretty good article on the subject:

the south loop sucks. all the vacant retail storefronts is depressing. Streets are way to wide and car centric.

The West Loop is the complete opposite. One of the premier new urban neighborhoods of America

I'm not a fan of the South Loop. It's designed for cars. It is one of the more worse areas to bike in too. The West Loop on the other hand is becoming a pleasant place to walk and bike around and is visually pleasing at ground level. River North isn't attractive either but it is busy with people.
