Permits have been issued for a three-story addition at Sullivan High School, located at 6631 N Bosworth Avenue in Rogers Park.
The permit is classified as a renovation, and is filed under the occupying owner Jennie Miller. The new wing will include an accessible elevator and a basement level. This addition comes as the overall campus is currently undergoing $25 million in renovations, according to an article by Block Club Chicago.
Avram Lothan of the Chicago-based firm Lothan Van Hook DeStefano Architecture LLC is behind the design. Renderings of the planned structure could not be found, though the filing description has indicated a steel and masonry exterior.
No additional parking appears to be planned, and it seems likely that the new construction will replace a portion of the current surface parking. However, students, faculty, staff, and visitors will find several nearby transportation options, including bus stops for Route 22 within a five-minute walk west at the intersections of Clark & North Shore and Clark & Albion. Additional bus service in the vicinity includes stops for Routes 36, 96, 147, 151, and 155.
Those looking to board CTA L trains have access to the Red Line at Loyola station, an 11-minute walk east. The Metra is also within walking distance, located 12 minutes to the northwest at Rogers Park station.
Various outdoor spaces also line the area, most notably Loyola Beach and its surrounding park space that can be found via a 15-minute walk northeast.
Tyler Lane Construction Inc. is serving as general contractor for roughly $2 million project. While Block Club Chicago’s article mentioned a fall 2021 completion date for the renovations, it is unclear if the new structure will be included in that timeline.
