Renovation permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 2215 W Chicago Avenue in West Town. MVRS Properties is the filing owner, whose plans include a rehab of the existing 12-unit structure, the reconstruction of the rear porch, and the construction of a six-car concrete parking pad.
John Hanna of Hanna Architects is the architect of record for the masonry building’s renovation. No drawings or renderings of the changes outlined in the permit have been published.
As far as public transportation in the area, bus stops for Route 66 can be found at the intersection of Chicago & Leavitt, less than a minute walk east. Additional service within a 10-minute walk includes Routes 49 and X49 to the west, Route 50 to the east, and Route 65 to the south.
For rail transit, closest CTA L trains are available for the Blue Line at Damen and Division/16th/Milwaukee stations, each roughly a 25-minute walk northeast. A future station is also planned for the Green Line, located a 22-minute walk southeast by the intersection of Damen & Lake. Lastly, the Metra is available at Western station via a 15-minute walk southwest.
Several green spaces are located nearby, including Superior Playground Park to the southeast and Smith Park to the southwest. Various cultural venues are also in close proximity, such as the Ukrainian Cultural Center, the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, and the Ukrainian National Museum all within a five-minute walking radius.
