Englewood Construction says that it has been named general contractor for two Chicago-area projects. The first is the conversion of a former meatpacking building in Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood for commercial use.
Construction on the 19,000-sq.-ft., four-story building will begin this summer. The project’s developer is entrepreneur Aiman Humadieh.
The second project is the construction of a new 6,000-sq.-ft. retail building on the border of Chicago’s Uptown and Buena Park neighborhoods. The project, which is part of the development plans for the neighboring Eight Eleven Uptown residential tower, is a joint venture between Harlem Irving Co. and JDL Development. The architect is OKW Architects. Completion is set to begin late this summer.
In Chicago’s burgeoning Fulton Market District, Englewood was selected by entrepreneur Aiman Humadieh for the renovation of a former meatpacking building at 1107 W. Fulton St. The company is collaborating with the development team to finalize designs for the project, which calls for converting the 19,000-sq.-ft. building for future retail, restaurant or office space. Englewood will also rebuild all mechanical and electrical infrastructure and install all new vertical transportation.
In Uptown, Englewood also has been chosen as the general contractor for the construction of a new retail center at 4407 N. Clarendon Ave. Construction is expected to begin this spring, with a target completion date in late summer.
