A blighted section of the Fulton River District is slated to get a facelift as the Chicago Plan Commission has approved the construction of the two building retail and residential complex 500 North Milwaukee. This young project has already been through a round of developer musical chairs, with the third one to get involved actually securing the permits. The Pappageorge/Haymes designed complex will feature 221 residential units and sit at the corner of Grand and Milwaukee, a busy intersection for commuters.
The design is not set in stone, as accommodations may be made to provide the CTA with more space on the sidewalk for the Grand Blue Line entrance and the busy bus routes along Milwaukee and Halsted Avenues.
