Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story masonry building located at 2038 W 18th Street in Lower West Side‘s Heart of Chicago. While it is unclear what the owner PKD Pilsen Enterprises plans to have replace the mixed-use structure, the site’s zoning designation of C1-2 Neighborhood Commercial District would allow for retail at ground level with apartments above. C1-2 also permits a floor area ratio of 2.2, by which any new construction could have the square footage up to 2.2 times that of the site itself.

Nearest CTA L service, meanwhile, is located a five-minute walk south to the Pink Line’s Damen station.

Park space can also be found nearby at the 18.6-acre Harrison Park, whose northwest corner is within a two-minute walk east. This recreationally packed venue features a variety of activities, including a boxing center, multiple sports fields, a playground, basketball courts, and tennis courts.
