Photos show site prep at 133 S Ashland Avenue, a four-story residential building set to rise at the western border of West Loop. Filed under the owner 133 Ashland Land LLC, the planned development will provide 89 units with on-site parking for 120 vehicles with three accessible spaces.
YIMBY previously reported that the owner received two zoning ordinances in 2018, allowing for residential below the second floor and reducing the rear setback from 30 to 2 feet.
SPACE Architects + Planners is behind the project’s design. No drawings or renderings of the plan have yet been revealed. However given the design context in the neighborhood and similar nearby projects by SPACE, the building will likely incorporate a brick facade.

Whenever I click on a “permit was issued for x” article I already know it is for a “4-story structure” 99% of the time. Tell me how many units and parking spaces & I’ll have a rough idea of how much it will sprawl. Unbelievable.
