I live close by that's highly disappointing. It's walking distance to two blue line stops! Between that and the self-storage facility going up on Winnebago and Bloomingdale... what the hell... We need more residents to help support struggling and shuttered businesses on our main thoroughfares, not this crap.

Wow, absolute trash. That is such a high profile intersection. What an absolute waste.

The project at the north east corner of May and Carrol looks to be just about started. Construction fence is being set up and Taylor has had a piece of equipment in the yard for a week or so. Other staging is in progress too.

^ I saw 1112 W Carroll has a pending permit, so once that's complete they'll be ready to break ground

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.
