Construction permits have been issued for a four-story mixed-use building at Wicker Park‘s 2111 W Caton Street, where the developer Lux Living 4U LLC has planned eight residential units above ground-floor retail. The structure will also come with a rooftop deck, a rooftop stair enclosure, and an incorporated eight-car garage.
Located on a triangular-shaped lot bound by W Caton Street, N Milwaukee Avenue, and the CTA L tracks, the new construction will replace a masonry commercial building. Zoning was approved late last year to reduce the required 30-foot-long rear setback to one foot.
John Hanna of Hanna Architects is the architect of record. The facade design is comprised of a mix of aluminum, brick, and stone, with balconies along its north-facing side.
Immediate public transportation includes stops for the 56 CTA bus route, which can be found at the adjacent Milwaukee & Caton intersection. Also nearby are stops for Route 50 to the east and Route 72 to the south. Those looking to board the CTA L Blue Line will have access to Damen station via a five-minute walk southeast. Service for the Metra is slightly further, with the closest service available at Clybourn station a 21-minute walk northeast.
A wide variety of shops and restaurants are available along the adjacent N Milwaukee Avenue, stretching both to the northwest and southeast. Also nearby is the 606 elevated park, with the nearest access point at Churchill Park, a seven-minute walk northeast.
Work is expected to cost just over $1,450,000, with DOM Property Investments as the general contractor. A full construction timeline has not been announced.
