FERN HILL PRESENTS DEVELOPMENT OUTLINE FOR NORTH + LASALLE
Developer Fern Hill presented an outline of their development surrounding the corner of W. North Ave and N. LaSalle St. After initially announcing theirback in October 2021, the developers returned to detail their takeaways from over a year of community engagement via multiple meetings and their website.
Planning a unified development, Fern Hill has planned to consolidate the new development to the parking lot at the northwest corner of W. North Ave and N. LaSalle Dr. Placing the new development here will preserve adjacent historic structures as well as preserve views from adjacent residential towers.
With no specific plans shown for the new construction, a representative from Fern Hill explained that they will continue with stakeholder meetings in February and March before presenting renderings and plans for the new building later this spring. Adjaye Associates will be designing the new architecture in collaboration with local architect GREC Architects.
