Demolition permits have been issued for a single-story masonry commercial building located at 1701 E 75th Street in South Shore. Owned by M&M Realty, the former car wash has been unoccupied since 2016. It is unclear what the agency plans to have replace the structure, though the lot is zoned for C1-2 Neighborhood Commercial District, which allows for a wide array of retail types, with apartments permitted above. The designation also allows for a floor area ratio of 2.2, whereby any new construction may have the square footage of up to 2.2 times of the lot itself.

  1. A 52 minute walk to the Red Line? Possible typo?

    • Hi Michael, it is actually a 52-minute walk indicated by Google Maps, so we included info for additional Metra access as well
