Permits were recently issued for a four-story residential building in Noble Square, just south of Milwaukee Avenue. The structure will replace a three-story brick building, and will also have a masonry exterior.

The owner under the 1520 Thomas LLC plans to develop three residential units within the building. The 1520 address appears to be incorporated into the old building. For the new programming, is unknown how these units will be partitioned throughout the four floors, or if that figure includes the rooftop enclosure for a planned deck.

The architect of record is listed as Chicago-based Victor Drapszo of Red Architects Ltd. Additional components include a basement, a rooftop deck, a rear steel porch and stairs, as well as a concrete parking slab. No renderings of the development have yet been released.

Near the site are a number of bus transit options including a two-minute walk east to Milwaukee & Thomas, serviced by Route 56 and Division & Ashland is a four-minute walk northwest, serviced by Route 70. The nearest Route 9 access is at Ashland & Augusta, a five-minute walk southwest.

The closest CTA L station is the Blue Line’s Division station, a five-minute walk northwest to the Division & Ashland intersection.

GB Construction LLC is the general contractor for the $900,000 project. An expected completion date has not been revealed.

  1. I really really hate that these beautiful, historic residential buildings and being torn down left and right and replaced with garbage, boring condo buildings. It’s ruining Chicago.
