2/17/2021- All city departments have reviewed the submitted plans. The final requested modifications are being submitted by our architect this week for final approval.

1/6/2021- The City of Chicago's Zoning and Planning Departments have approved the submitted plans.  The approvals are now making their way through Architectural and Structural review. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.

12/8/2020 - Partial City approval - The City of Chicago has approved the new design drawings. We are awaiting for approval on the supporting steel structure, which is the last part of this process.

This will be followed by the installation of the steel structure on the southeastern section of the annex rooftop.

The rooftop deck will be made of composite decking and have two entrances; one at the west end of the 4th floor hallway, and one at the top of the Annex South (AS) stairwell. We will provide an update status when there is new information available.

11/10/2020 - This is a new page to provide rapid updates on the progress of the approved Shoemaker Lofts rooftop deck. As of right now, the project is in the permitting phase - as soon as approval is given by the City of Chicago, we will provide updates and additional information in this section.
