Harlem Irving Companies is moving forward with the standalone retail portion of a residential tower it is building in Uptown.
The Norridge-based developer applied for a permit to build a one-story retail center at 4407 North Clarendon Avenue, according to city records.
The retail center is part of Harlem Irving Companies and JDL Development’s 27-story mixed-use tower dubbed Eight Eleven Uptown. Plans for the development call for a 373-unit residential tower with ground floor retail that will be anchored by a 30,000-square-foot Treasure Island grocery store, according to Harlem Irving’s website.
The plan also calls for 6,000 square feet of retail to be built across the street from the residential tower, on the northeast corner of Montrose and Clarendon avenues.
The building will have two retail spaces, according to a leasing flyer from Mid-America Urban. There will be 11 parking spaces and room for an exterior patio for one of the retail spaces.
The new development is rising on the former campus of Frank Cuneo Memorial Hospital, and later Maryville Academy before it was demolished in 2016. A Harlem Irving-led venture acquired a number of parcels in the area from the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart in 2016, taking out an $80 million loan from JPMorgan.
Representatives from Harlem Irving and JDL did not immediately return requests for comment.
In October, Harlem Irving listed its luxury apartment complex down the street from the Eight Eleven Uptown site.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
