Two separate demolition permits have been issued for 2235 W Roscoe Street in Roscoe Village, where owner Gino Battaglia is planning to remove a two-story masonry mixed-use building in the front, as well as a single-story masonry coach house in the rear.
It is currently unknown what will replace the structures, though the site is zoned for B2-2 Neighborhood Mixed-Use District, which allows for either retail storefronts or apartments at ground level. B2-2 also permits a floor area ratio of 2.2, which means that any development can have square footage up to 2.2 times that of the containing lot.
Nearest bus access includes north and southbound stops for Route 49, a four-minute walk west. Other buses within a 10-minute walk include Route 152 to the north, Route 50 to the east, Route 77 to the south, and Route X49 to the southwest. Service for the CTA L Brown Line is also located at both the Paulina and Addison stations, both a 15-minute walk to the east and northeast, respectively.
Parks in the area include the 9.1-acre Hamlin Park to the southeast and the 22.4-acre Clark Park to the west.
Viewpoint Services is the wrecking contractor for both removals. No construction permits for any replacing development have yet been filed, nor is a completion timeline currently known.
