Chicago-based firms The Habitat Company, James McHugh Construction Co. and Bowa Construction said they recently topped off a commercial and retail building that marks phase one of the $200-million Ogden Commons mixed-use project in the West Side’s North Lawndale neighborhood. Habitat formed a public-private partnership with Sinai Health System, Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, the Chicago Housing Authority and the city of Chicago to develop the 10 acres along the 2600 block of Ogden Avenue.
Upon completion in 2026, the Ogden Commons project will include 120,000 square feet of commercial and retail space and more than 350 mixed-income housing units.
“While COVID-19 kept us from celebrating with a traditional topping-off ceremony when the last piece of steel was placed in late April, we wanted to acknowledge how proud we are of the construction workers and subs for hitting this milestone on time and on budget,” said Habitat president Matt Fiascone.
