This week, Alderman Joe Moore held a community meeting to update Rogers Park residents on the progress and construction timeline of the upcoming Concord on Sheridan mixed-income housing and Target store development. Contractor Madison Construction and developer Three Corners were on hand to provide an estimated timeline for the combination housing and retail project.
Though crews received the official go-ahead for construction back in September, work started Thursday in the form of sheet piling. The foundation work is expected to take six weeks, according to an email from Moore’s office.
Starting on Monday, construction cranes will be installed on the site. By February 2018, construction of the parking garage and apartment building will start. In April, workers will start on a community room for residents of the Carolyn Hedger senior building and retail space. Interior work will take place between February 2019 and fall 2019 when the project is expected to be complete.
Residents can expect a sidewalk closure on the west side of Sheridan in front of the project throughout the length of construction, according to Moore’s email. Both southbound lanes on Sheridan will remain open, however the developer will repaint lanes to accommodate the construction barriers.
The construction team for the project has created a hotline for neighbors to call with any concerns at 708-613-7217. More details about the site logistics can be found in the presentation given at Tuesday’s community meeting.
When completed, the eight-story building at 6418 North Sheridan Road will contain 111 apartments, which will be 60 percent affordable housing and 40 percent market rate units. The project will offer 125 parking spaces and 30,000 square feet of ground floor retail space that will be leased mostly to a Target store. The Chicago Housing Authority, private firm Three Corners Development and GREC Architects are responsible for the project.
