Construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building at 719 N Elizabeth Street in West Town. JL Development LLC is behind the project, who last year received zoning approval to reduce the rear and side setbacks. The new structure will replace a currently vacant lot and yield five residential units, a rooftop deck and stair enclosure, a basement, and five exterior parking spaces on a concrete parking pad.
John Hanna of Hanna Architects is responsible for the design, which will be masonry and include a setback deck on the top floor. Published drawings also indicate decorative window treatment at the front.
Transit includes east and westbound stops for Route 66 available via a two-minute walk north to Chicago & Elizabeth. Additional stops for Route 56 lie at the intersection of Chicago, Milwaukee, & Ogden a five-minute walk northeast, while Route 65 is a seven-minute walk south to Grand & Ogden.
The Chicago, Milwaukee, & Ogden intersection also provides access the the CTA L Blue Line at Chicago Station. Further CTA L service for the Green and Pink Lines can be found at Ashland station via an 18-minute walk southwest.
Residents will also find nearby outdoor space at Eckhart Park, accessible via a two-minute walk northwest.
BM International Builders Inc is serving as general contractor for the $915,500 venture, whose anticipated completion date is not currently known.
