The long-vacant lot on the east side of North Halsted Street just south of Armitage Avenue is now under construction. The former tbree-story building at 1927 North Halsted was demolished in 2005, and since then the fairly large parcel has been an uncharacteristically empty space with a nice fence.
Our photographer Daniel Schell brings us these pictures of construction crews working on the basement of the new building. It will be two stories above ground, and one story below. The underground portion will be parking, while above grade there will be 44,000 square feet of space. The architect of the $5.7 million building is Chicago’s Todd Main of Main Architecture in the Near North neighborhood.
