Work is currently underway to build a new seven-story, mixed-use building at 6418 N Sheridan. The developer, Three Corners Development, and the construction team, Madison Construction, will be providing regular updates as the project progresses.
When completed, the development will include 111 units of market rate and affordable rental housing and a small “flexible format” Target store. Construction is expected to last approximately two years with an estimated completion date in the fall of 2019.
If you wish to be added to the developer’s communication email list, please email Julie Derrig at email@example.com.
The construction team established a hotline for neighbors to call with any concerns: 708-613-7217. Site superintendent Scott Richardson will work with his team to respond.

February 6, 2018: Update from developer
Dear Neighbors –
We would like to provide you with an update regarding The Concord at Sheridan construction.
Major Work Notification:
We are happy to report that the sheet piling work that was finished ahead of schedule by two weeks. Work anticipated to last through mid-January was completed by late December. We appreciate your patience and understanding during that time period.
The next major phase of the project will be pouring the foundation. We anticipate this activity to last until mid-May, weather permitting. During this time period you may notice an increase in truck traffic. It may also be necessary for us to temporarily close a lane on Sheridan to accommodate the trucks during the pour.
There will be on average two cement trucks coming in and out of the site every 30 minutes during the work day. We have worked with our vendor to ensure that they use only the approved routes to access and leave the site. They have been told not to use residential streets.
Construction Site Management:
· Sheridan Sidewalk Closure: The sidewalk on Sheridan in front of the site will continue to remain closed for the duration of the project. In response to community feedback, we have added additional sidewalk closure and directional signage around the site. We have also added some additional fencing and barricades to discourage pedestrians from using the street as a walkway.
We will continue to work with Alderman Moore’s office and CDOT to discuss improvements to that intersection.
· Sheridan Road: On most days both lanes on Sheridan Road will remain open during the project. Certain work may force us to shut down a lane temporarily. When possible we will notify the community in advance of those closures. We have worked with CDOT to make some slight modifications to the lanes that will make it easier for our trucks to get in and out of the site.

Construction Site Management
- Work Hours: The construction team will adhere to the City’s 8:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m. time limits for construction work. For phases of the project that generate more noise, such as sheet piling, the developer and construction team agreed to my request to end those activities by 6:00 p.m. as a courtesy to the neighbors. Work will take place Monday–Friday. On some occasions, work may take place on Saturday to keep the project on schedule.
- Sheridan Sidewalk Closure: The sidewalk on the west side of Sheridan in front of the project will be closed for the duration of the construction. This closure is necessary to ensure the safety of pedestrians. I worked with the construction team to place signage on the sidewalk approaching the site alerting pedestrians to the closure and providing them with a recommended alternate route. I strongly encourage people to use the alternate route. It is not safe to use Sheridan Road as a walkway. A map detailing the alternate route is included in the PowerPoint Presentation.
- Sheridan Road: Both southbound lanes on Sheridan will remain open during the project. The developer will restripe the southbound lanes with the guidance of the Chicago Department of Transportation to accommodate the construction barricades and ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
- Construction Parking: The construction workers are instructed to avoid parking on nearby residential streets and instead park at either the Morgan or Fordham parking garages. If you notice any construction-related vehicles parked on a residential street, please contact my office and provide a description of the vehicle, including a license plate number, so that we can alert the construction team.
- Vibration Monitoring: Four vibration monitors are installed around the site. The construction team and City inspectors will monitor the site regularly to ensure all vibrations are within allowable levels.
- Dust Mitigation and Sweeping: A street sweeping vehicle will be employed daily around the site to ensure local streets are kept clean.
- Building Material Deliveries: All building materials will be delivered through the entrance on Sheridan. A detailed map on how trucks access the site is included in the PowerPoint Presentation.
- Waste Disposal & Removal: All waste disposal will take place on site.
- Street Closures: Residents and motorists will be notified in advance of any temporary lane or street closures during the construction.
