Permits have been issued for a three-story single-family residential building, located at 6229 S Ellis Avenue in Woodlawn. Filed under Lewis Korompilas, the structure will be one of six townhouses planned as part of the overall development, according to the recently issued filing. However, the filing mentioned that the other five structures were not covered in the current permit, and no additional permits have yet been issued. Currently the site is occupied by a three-story masonry residential building with an address of 6229-31 S Ellis Avenue. The exact layout of the six townhouses or whether additional property will be required is not currently known.
Each of the residences will include a rooftop deck, a rear metal balcony, an attached two-car garage with an additional roof deck.
Alexander Polichuk is the architect of record. No renderings have yet been revealed, though multiple masonry contractors have been listed, suggesting what could likely be a brick or masonry facade. Other townhouse complexes nearby also offer a potential clue for the style of these homes, which involves a contemporary mix of wood, masonry, and metal facade treatments.
