Zoning has been approved for the new Howard Brown Health Clinic at 3501 N Halsted Street in Boystown. The clinic will be located on a corner lot at the intersection of N Halsted Street and W Cornelia Avenue. The Addison CTA L station, serviced by the Red Line, is within a seven-minute walk from the site. The 8 CTA bus route, accessed at the Halsted and Cornelia, is located directly adjacent to the property.
Designed by Architrave, the development will consist of a five-story clinic and office building rising 67 feet. The building will hold 7,600 square feet of retail space at ground level, two floors of clinic space, and three floors of office space. The project will contain 27 parking spaces and 20 bicycle spaces.
The project features active retail along N Halsted Street with the entrance to the Howard Brown Clinic at the corner of N Halsted Street and W Cornelia Avenue. A bright, open lobby will welcome community members and direct them to the 2nd and 3rd floor clinic areas. The upper floors will serve as office and conference space for the Howard Brown administrative staff.
Outdoor features include a balcony which overlooks N Halsted Street and a south-facing deck with space for staff to sit and relax. The exterior façade utilizes brick which serves to integrate with the neighborhood, and glass which allows it to appear lighter and more transparent as the building rises.
With this approval, the development can move forward with permitting and construction. Permits have not been filed for the construction. No official timeline has been announced.
