Full construction permits have now been issued for 2143 N Racine Avenue, a planned three-story residential building in Lincoln Park. As previously reported by YIMBY, demolition permits were issued for an existing masonry multi-unit residence. This new construction will provide three total units, a rooftop deck and stair enclosure, steel stairs, and a detached three-car garage.
Christopher M. Dasse is the listed architect of record. No drawings or renderings of Dasse’s plans could be found, though the filing description has mentioned a masonry design. Given that project was subject to further review as a part of the Sheffield Historic District, the architecture will likely reflect the classical style of the surrounding buildings.
Along with the three mentioned parking spaces, residents will have bus transportation access to Route 73, available at Racine & Clybourn/Cortland via a five-minute walk south. Those looking to board Route 74 will find stops via a five-minute walk north to Fullerton & Racine. CTA L trains, meanwhile, are available for the Brown and Purple Lines at Armitage station via a 10-minute walk southeast. Additional Red Line access can be found at Fullerton station via an 11-minute walk northeast.
Taylor Excavating & Construction is overseeing the demolition of the existing residence, while Midtown Development LLC will serve as the general contractor for the new building. An anticipated completion date has not yet been revealed.
