Renderings have been revealed for a proposed residential development at 5040 N Western Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located along N Western Avenue, the interior lot is sited between W Winnemac Avenue and W Carmen Avenue. JEK Enterprises LLC is the developer behind the proposal.
Designed by Eduard Livanu, the development consists of a four-story residential building. The project will hold four dwelling units, all as three-bedroom residences, with the ground-floor unit expanding into the basement of the structure. The building is planned to rise 57 feet in height. There will be a three-car masonry garage located at the rear of the site.
Routes 49 and 49B CTA buses, accessed at the Western and Winnemac stop, can be reached within a one-minute walk from the site. The 11 CTA bus, accessed at the Lincoln and Winnemac stop, is a three-minute walk away.
The proposal seeks to rezone the site from B3-2, Community Shopping District, to B2-3, Neighborhood Mixed-Use District. The zoning change will require aldermanic approval, as well as approval by the Chicago City Council. An official timeline for the development has not been announced.
