Chicago has issued a $4,582,000 building permit for a component of a major 27-story Maryville development.

The permit for work at 804 W. Montrose is associated with a project at 811 W. Agatite Ave., for which a $45 million permit was issued last June.

The permit says: “Self certification, first-time buildout – mercantile use, on the 1st floor of the new construction of the 27-story building with residential units, retail and parking.”

The permit associated with owner Jim Snyder (JDL Development) has a scope of work described as “Interior buildout: Architectural interior, structural support works, millwork, equipment, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire protection and refrigeration.”

The project on the site of the former Cuneo Hospital and Maryville Academy) designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA) includes a grocery store, though the recent permit documentation isn’t specific about this detail.
