The Sinclair to rise on Jewel-Osco store site at Clark and Division


Demolition preparations have started for The Sinclair, an apartment tower at the northwest corner of Clark and Division streets, which will become the city’s second largest transit-oriented development as the project will be directly on top of CTA’s Clark/Division Red Line station, with entrances at each end of the block.

The existing Jewel-Osco store officially closed last weekend, according to, and tear-down work has started in the store’s interior. The store will re-emerge in a new and updated format when the project is completed.

The new apartments will be split between two buildings, including a 390-unit (35 storey) tower, along with a conversion/expansion of a four storey office building across the street into a 98-unit rental building with ground floor retail.

According to the Chicago Architecture Blog, the project’s developer is FRC Lasalle LLC (Fifield Companies) and the architect is Solomon Cordwell Buenz.
