Construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building at 219 S Hamilton Avenue, located in Near West Side just west of United Center. The owner behind the filing, Hamilton 213 LLC, is planning eight total units, a rooftop deck and enclosure, as well as rear porches. The structure will also have parking for two vehicles at the basement level, along with two street-level garages housing an additional six cars. These garages will also have their own rooftop decks.
John C. Hanna is listed as the architect behind the project. While no renderings have been revealed, multiple masonry contractors indicate what will likely be a stone or brick facade.
The development lies less than a block south of the 3.9-acre Touhy-Herbert Park, and less than three blocks north of Interstate 290. Transportation in the area includes the east and westbound CTA Bus 126, with stops at Jackson & Leavitt, a two-minute walk southwest and Jackson & Hoyne, a two-minute walk southeast. Additional bus access within a 10-minute walk includes Bus 20 along Madison to the north, Bus 50 along Damen to the east, and Bus 7 along Harrison to the south.
As far as CTA L access, the nearest station for the Blue Line can be found at Illinois Medical District station, a seven-minute walk southeast. Meanwhile, nearest access for the Pink Line is a slightly further 20-minute walk southeast to Polk station. Both the Pink and Green Lines can be accessed from Ashland station as well, located a 22-minute walk northeast.
