Some more of construction and fencing.

The feel of this section of Near North has been changing really fast - eg with the recent 3 projects along along Chicago Ave, as well as OCS, Bush Temple, AMLI, Eight O Five, Aurelien, and Atrium Village in the last few years. It's going to feel completely different once these start rising yet again. Also 311 W Huron kicking off and now 739 N Wells about to be demo'd. Then there's there's the casino...

IMO eventually this whole area will congeal with the River District and development on the south end of Goose Island and have a bit of it's own identity, kinda like Old Town. Methinks/hopes that an improvement in neighborhood feel and rentals in this are may help popularize the neighborhood and expedite those developments a bit.

It feels like Chicago Ave has finally grown up and is going to become a bit more busy. And I think this will link everything a bit more to Milwuakee and Wicker Park. Its exciting to see developments filling in gaps between activity centers in the city and things starting to feel a bit more contiguous.

3 demo permits were issued for 210-232 W Chestnut/859 N Franklin. These are a few 1 and 2 story buildings https://www.google.com/maps/place/85...3!4d-87.635464)

232 W Chestnut is supposed to be 5 stories at 70 feet tall, while 871 N Franklin will be 4 stories at 50 feet tall. Existing 3 story building at Franklin & Locust will get a 4th floor added on and be adaptively re-used (https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8990...7i16384!8i8192)

The latest renderings show that the design may have changed. Looks like a bland glass box.

Can you provide a source? This would be highly devastating to a perfect design. Like seriously, just leave the sh^t as is when the project was originally announced.

Booo! At least they're renovating the lowrise warehouse. The delivery timeline for this section was 2023-2024, but looks like they want to finish this sooner rather than later.

I've seen blander...

From the article.

Quote:
232 W Chestnut Street, the next structure in this phase, will be a five-story structure rising 70 feet in height. Holding 35 residential units, the building will utilize a mass-timber structure and be clad in a steel structure facade. Residences will be larger in size and have corner balconies. The final building of the first phase will be 871 N Franklin Street, an existing building that comprises four floors that rise 50 feet tall. Formerly the Nealy Printing Company, the masonry and limestone structure will be adaptively reused with a glass addition creating a fifth floor.
From rgarri's render it looks like 232 is getting the boot. Wonder if the new structure still uses timber... 871 still looks similar to before though.

Based on the article, it sounds like the original design is still in play. I think the picture is just a bad render.

Great job saving that brick building on the corner. This is how you do things responsibly.

I pulled the rendering directly from their official website.
Here's the old rendering from last year.
