The Chicago City Council has approved plans for a residential development at 4447 N Hazel Street in Uptown. Located on a corner lot, the project will replace an existing church at the intersection of N Hazel Street and W Sunnyside Avenue. Longford Construction is the developer behind the proposal.
Designed by SPACE Architects + Planners, the new construction will include a five-story building holding 32 residential units. Of the 32 units, three residences will meet the Affordable Requirements Ordinance. There will also be 16 parking spaces and bike parking and storage accessible via the alley.
The development was approved for a zoning change from the current RM-5 district to a B2-3 district, with a designation as a transit-served location. This zoning change will allow for the scope of the building, while the TSL designation allows for the parking reduction.
The Wilson CTA L station, serviced by the Red and Purple Lines, is an eight-minute walk from the site. The 135 and 148 CTA buses, accessed at the Clarendon and Sunnyside stop, can be reached within a three-minute walk. The 151 CTA bus route, accessible from the Sheridan and Sunnyside stop, is also a three-minute walk. The 36 and 78 CTA bus routes, accessed at the Broadway and Sunnyside stop, are reachable within a five-minute walk from the site.
Longford Construction will also be the general contractor for the $10,000,000 construction. The development has received approval from the zoning committee and the Chicago City Council. An official timeline for the project has not been announced.
