Construction permits have been issued for a two-story mixed-use building at 4245 S Wells Street in Fuller Park. The filing owner, listed as Chicago Title Land Trust, plans retail space on the ground floor, with one residential unit above. The new structure is set to replace a currently vacant lot, that was re-designated from B3-1 (Community Shopping District) to Cl-1 (Neighborhood Commercial District) in 2013.
Ronald Vari of Vari Architects is the architect of record. No drawings or renderings have yet been released, though multiple masonry contractors likely indicate a masonry exterior.
