Multiple demolition permits have been issued for two adjacent properties at 917 and 919 S Aberdeen Street in Little Italy. MBZ Properties LLC is the listed owner, with previously issued permits outlining a three-story building with two apartment units for each lot. Parking for 919 S Aberdeen Street will include a concrete pad with two spaces, while the filing description for 917 S Aberdeen Street did not mention any on-site parking.
Ronald Vari of Vari Architects is the listed architect of record. No drawings or renderings have been revealed, and it is unclear if either structure will be frame or masonry.
