Construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building located at 2518 W Diversey Avenue in Avondale. Planned by Alverna Development, the new construction will house eight rental units. For parking, the structure will house four spaces in its basement and an additional four in two detached garages in the rear.
The Zoning Board of Appeals had granted an ordinance in December to allow for reduced set backs in the front from 10 feet to 3.42 feet and on the west side from 2 feet to none, thereby allowing for plans to proceed.
Ronald Vari of Vari Architects is the architect of record, whose plans call for a masonry structure with rear balconies and front porches for all four above-grade floors.
