The details for Radom Capitol’s Lowell St. Market makeover of the industrial warehouses at the corner of W. 18th St. and N. Shepherd Dr. seem to be getting firmed up, and a slew of new building permits were issued last month for the site. The latest depictions of the space show both a less neon green color-and-finish scheme and more detail as to how the redeveloped and new buildings will be sliced up for tenants. The current leasing plan shows the former Airmakers Cooling & Heating warehouse along N. Shepherd (depicted above on the left wearing what what Steve Radom describes as its Japanese-barn-inspired replacement skin) as the planned site of a single restaurant. The middle building, now shown with a brown forehead, appears to be getting sliced up into 3 shops. And the current leasing materials for the development show all of the dark blue spots below as already leased out:
A since-retracted flier sent to Swamplot by a tipster names them, from west to east, as vegan spray-tan salon Beautifully Bronzed, ice cream sandwich truck Smoosh, pop-up fish bowl purveyors Seaside Poke, and another branch of Snooze A.M. Eatery. Jack Witthaus mentioned the Snooze locale back in late October, while the other 2 restaurants have made oblique or overt mention of planned Heights locations near the food-centric N. Shepherd redevelopment zone.
The 3,344-sq.-ft. former home of Savvi Commercial Furniture (which just moved out of the westernmost space to a North Fwy. spot outside the Loop in November) is evidently still up for grabs, as 1 piece or several:
The leasing info also depicts the reskinned Airmakers warehouse from N. Shepherd, set in an ethereal shroud of rosy clouds and delicately pink passer-bys:
