Some low-intensity site prep work was underway when I visited the site of The Maxwell in the early afternoon yesterday.
The Bond Companies’ website is anticipating delivery of 200,000 square feet of retail space in the Fall of 2013 at The Maxwell, a 3.9 acre mixed-use development underway between Clinton and Canal, just north of Roosevelt Rd.
The completed development is slated to include four residential buildings above the retail space, each with its own outdoor courtyard and collectively housing 370 apartments.
There’s speculation at the SkyscraperPage forum that the project may have difficulty gaining the needed zoning approval for the residential component.
The location, just west of Whole Foods and in the midst of a thriving retail corridor, falls between our neighborhood boundaries for the South Loop and University Village. The Bond Companies’ website refers to it as being in the South Loop, and that designation just might stick.
