Construction permits were issued this week for a three-story residential building located at 856 N Campbell Avenue in West Town. The listed owner is 3219 N Elston LLC, with the permit’s filing description indicating three total units. Plans also consist of a rooftop deck and stair enclosure, as well as a rear deck along the first, second, and third floors. Parking will allow for a three-car garage with a separate rooftop deck. The new development is set to replace a former single-story masonry residence and garage.

John Hanna of Hanna Architects is the listed architect of record. Currently, no drawings or renderings have been made publicly available. However, the filing has included multiple masonry contractors, which suggests a brick or stone exterior.

Located at the corner of N Campbell Avenue and W Iowa Street, residents will have nearest bus access for Route 66 via a three-minute walk south to Chicago & Campbell, Route 49 via a three-minute walk east to Western & Iowa, Route X49 via a five-minute walk southeast to Western & Chicago, and Route 65 via a nine-minute walk south to Grand & Campbell.

While no CTA L access is available in under a 20 minute walk, residents will find the Metra via Western Avenue station, a 15-minute walk south.

Vam Development Inc is the general contractor for the project, set to cost $841,200. No completion date has yet been listed.

  1. What’s the point of listing CTA access if it’s a 20+ minute walk away? No one is going to walk 30 minutes to get to a subway or L station.

      Hi Michael, thank you for your comment and feedback. We’re lowering the cutoff to ~20 minutes for listing L access
