Rendering of the project

UPDATE, Aug. 3, 12:15 p.m.: ComEd will begin construction on a $57.5 million office and warehouse complex in Avondale that will replace an existing century-old facility and screen neighbors from a power-generating substation.

The city granted the electric utility a permit for three-story facility designed to include 120,000 square feet of offices and an 80,000-square-foot warehouse, combining to accommodate about 600 employees, according to architect SCB.

It would also include a 10,000-square-foot public “STEM education area” and conference space, along with a 1,200-space parking garage, the company said.

The project is planned for an L-shaped parcel at the corner of California Avenue and Addison Street, wrapping around a Target-anchored strip mall to its northwest.

ComEd plans to demolish its existing offices and warehouse at the north edge of the property after construction of the new building is completed next year.

Last month, Coyote Logistics signed a 10-year lease extension on its 175,000-square-foot Chicago offices in nearby Logan Square.

And to the west in Belmont Cragin, the Merit Partners is developing The Fields mixed-use complex at 4000 West Diversey Avenue.

This article has been updated to clarify Merit Partners is developing The Fields.
