A year ago Crain’s Chicago Real Estate Daily reported that Portland-based Gerding Edlen Development planned to break ground by last November on a 19-story, 240-unit apartment tower at 625 W Division St.
The existing buildings on the south end of the site have been demolished and site clearance is nearly complete. Building permits have yet to issue for the start of construction.
We’re still categorizing the project as “Proposed” in our at-a-glance list of new downtown apartment projects. We’re also wondering whether this project has the weakest location of any of the Near North Side developments.
