The shuttered Sears facility at the intersection of Chicago’s North and Harlem avenues is poised to get a new lease on life as a development containing both retail and loft-style apartment components.

The preliminary plan for the vacant North Side site straddling the Galewood neighborhood and Elmwood Park was announced Wednesday by Tucker Developer and Seritage Growth Properties—a spin-off of Sears’ former real estate arm.

The Tucker/Seritage joint venture also revealed plans to redevelop the Six Corners Sears at border of Chicago’s Old Irving Park and Portage Park neighborhoods. Sears announced in April that it would be closing the 4730 W. Irving Park Road facility—its last in the city.
