    Developer Gets Demo Permit for Carl Street Studios Building
    The battle for the future of Old Town's beloved Carl Street Studios continues, but the new owner of 159 W. Burton Place has an ace in his deck-a demolition permit. The building is a part of the Carl Street Studios development that was created by SAIC students and architects Sol Kogen and Edgar Miller in the 1920s.

    A community is not a museum and must serve the changing needs of its residents.
    Old Town has room for the old and the new.
    Everything that is considered classic was once new. Let's not deny Old Town the right to a future legacy of great contemporary architecture which provides new housing and a very much needed tax revenue that comes from such development.

Construction Watch: Take a Tour of the Building Boom Currently Underway in Downtown Chicago

Further west, Gerding/Edlen Development's 18-story GREC-designed rental tower at 625 West Division is nearing completion.

This article has 8 other Chicago locations (Show)

Next door, the site has been cleared for the 13-story Center Point Properties data center at Calumet and 21st...

Further north at 1333-1345 South Wabash, CMK's 144-unit condo project is finished, while the 28-story rental project One Triple Three next door has excavated the site.

Crossing into the Loop Community Area, JDL's 1000 South Clark with 29 floors and 469 rental units is just about topped out with glazing now...

The SCB-designed 1001 South State is now really starting to take off with the tower past the more complicated levels of the parking podium and amenity deck. The 40 story, 398 unit structure now reaches the 14th floor.

At the riverfront trio to the west, crews at the Goettsch Partners-designed 150 North Riverside has been busy installing steel as the much anticipated cantilever takes shape and the tower crane has been erected.

Meanwhile across the street, the Pickard Chilton designed River Point office tower at 444 West Lake has about 30 of its 53 floors of steel now framed out.

At 85 East Wacker Drive, work crews with W.E. O'Neil construction have now almost fully fireproofed the steel framed London House hotel annex and glass has begun installation on the first three floors.

Further north along State Street, the even more exclusive 4 East Elm, with 35 units in a slender 25-story SCB-designed tower has reached the 16th floor.

    Take a Tour of the Building Boom Currently Underway in Downtown Chicago
    Summer is cranking along and so is Chicago's construction scene. In case you've missed it, the city is experiencing a boom in new construction. Thousands of new apartment units and hotel rooms are on the way, and the city's skyline is littered with cranes that are helping construct these new developments.

Lost Cat Alert

Please help me find my lost cat. Her name is Leila and is a black short kitty that is 3 years old and weighs about 9 lbs. She needs medication and also doesn't have any teeth so it's imperative I find her quickly! She somehow escaped the pet sitter either when taking out the trash or watering plants and so I'm cutting my vacation short to find her. Please help and let me know of any information.
Offering a cash reward to anyone who finds her!
We live at 873 N Larrabee, just North of Chicago avenue so hopefully she hasn't gone to far. Call 707-318-1911 or 773-495-6868 if you find her or see anything that can help me.

  • @WendiChicago Interested in local news

    Great news! Thanks for the update.

  • AvaBianca West Town/Noble Square resident.

    That's SO good to hear! I was thinking about her.... Happy she's home.
