Construction permits have been issued for a new three-story residential building at 3655 S Michigan Avenue in Douglas. Filed under the owner Innisfree Builders, the development will include an open rear steel porch and stairs, as well as a three-car detached garage. The project is set to replace a currently vacant lot that was part of a recent ordinance to rezone a multi-parcel stretch of land from B3-3, Community Shopping District and Cl-3 Neighborhood Commercial District to RM-5 Residential Multi-Unit District.
Charles Schwartz is the architect of record. No drawings or renderings of the planned design could be found, though the filing description has confirmed a masonry exterior for both the main structure and the garage.
