The Zoning Board of Appeals has granted two zoning ordinances for a future mixed-use development at 3113 N Lincoln Avenue in Lake View. The project is located on an unusual lot in the shape of a slight V, with frontage on both N Lincoln Avenue and N Greenview Avenue. The nearest CTA bus transportation is Routes 77 or 9 accessed at the Belmont and Ashland/Lincoln stop, only a three-minute walk away. The Paulina CTA L station, serviced by the Brown Line is a ten-minute walk away.
The zoning ordinance applications come from Barrett Properties for the building which will rise four stories and comprise nine dwelling units as well as ground-floor retail space. The first application looks to reduce the rear setback from 30 feet to 0.33 feet on floors containing dwelling units along the N Greenview Avenue frontage. The second application looks to reduce the commercial floor area requirement from 1,048 square feet to 838 square feet for the retail space along N Lincoln Avenue. Both of these applications were approved.
Images provided of the construction drawings show the layout of the project on the unusual-shaped lot. The ground-floor plan shows the retail space along N Lincoln Avenue and the five interior parking spaces along N Greenview Avenue, separated by the stair and elevator core. Elevation views show the masonry construction of the façade, with balconies for residential units. The N Lincoln Avenue frontage is narrower than the N Greenview Avenue, but is positioned as the front side of the building, with the N Greenview Avenue frontage acting as the service side.
Demolition of the existing one-story building will be required, however permits have not been filed. No official timeline has been announced.
