Stop Work Order Lifted at Six Corners Sears Redevelopment Project

Sears Redevelopment Six Corners

Some good news to report on the Chicago construction scene as the stop work order issued in August for the Sears at Six Corners redevelopment project was completely lifted last month, clearing the way for work on the fifth-floor addition to start up again. This looks like an amazing project and it is great to see Chicago redevelopments take place. 

"It has been determined the installation of steel beams that was done without a construction permit on the fifth floor is “proper” and will not have to be removed and reinstalled, according to the city Department of Buildings."

We cannot stress enough the importance of having approved permits for your project. This particular project was held up more than once as demolition took place without a permit. Stop work orders can be costly and especially on significant projects. On this project, "the cost of the structural company’s review is being paid for by Novak, according to the department."

Let the Phase 1 team help keep your project moving along and with proper approvals.
