Renderings of a new 42-story Chicago high-rise apartment building and adjacent Jewel-Osco grocery store have been released by the developer, Fifield Companies. The redevelopment of the existing Jewel-Osco grocery store at Clark Street and Division Street is a cooperative venture of Jewel-Osco and Fifield. Plans include a brand new store adjacent to a transit-oriented, luxury rental apartment building.
Jewel-Osco and Fifield Companies have met and shared the preliminary proposal with community groups and area residents. A zoning application has been filed with the city of Chicago for an in-depth review. The filing of this application triggers the expanded and comprehensive public process, which includes additional community meetings and opportunities for input.
The new 50,000 square foot flagship grocery store will replace the 35-year old 29,000 square foot space. The zero waste store will include Jewel-Osco’s high-end offerings that can be found at other stores in the Chicago area. Enclosed loading docks will minimize noise and improve traffic patterns for deliveries. Parking is enclosed above the store. The development site is located next to a red line stop which is currently undergoing station upgrades
The development team has proposed a 42-story luxury rental apartment building featuring studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units with top-of-the-line finishes.The buildings will be designed with green building standards and will seek LEED certification. Sustainable elements include a green roof, energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems, and use of recycled building materials.
The project proposes to invest more than one million dollars in neighborhood improvements, including enhanced streetscape, landscaping and lighting.
