Construction Workers Busy as Beavers at Cabrini Green

625 West Division under construction

An Oregon real estate developer is beavering along with its first project in Chicago. 

625 West Division in Goose Island will be a 240-unit apartment building when it’s completed in May of next year.  Gerding Edlen Development is hoping to land LEED Gold status for the 18-story building designed by GREC Architects. 

Chicago Architecture Blog photographer Daniel Schell captured these scenes of construction work well underway on the foundation of the high rise, which is across the street from the Cabrini Green Target.
