Since YIMBY’s last update, demolition has fully wrapped up at the site of a planned nine-story building planned by John Buck Company and Free Market Ventures in Uptown. Located at 4601 N Broadway Street, the mixed-use building is set to house 12,000 square feet of ground-level retail, with 200 apartments on the upper floors. Located at the corner of Broadway and Wilson, the site was previously occupied by a one-story masonry commercial building.
The retail portion will contain five total units, ranging from 1,628 to 2,178 square feet. According to planning documents, the one unit facing Wilson Avenue will be able to accommodate a restaurant.
Units will be divided into 154 studios, 28 one-bedrooms, 16 two-bedrooms, and two three-bedrooms. Of these residences, four of the studios and one of the one-bedrooms will be classified as affordable.
Resident amenities will be located on the ninth floor, with access to a fitness center, a media and game lounge, a business center, and a rooftop terrace. Additionally, parking will offer residents 22 spaces and storage for 178 bikes.
At 103 feet in height, the masonry design has been envisioned by Pappageorge Haymes. The first-floor facade will be clad in a mix of charcoal-colored brick and white cast stone, and will support a mural on its north-facing side. Meanwhile, the eight floors above will involve a tan modular face brick and decorative stone cornice elements.
The property is directly adjacent to bus stops for Routes 36 and 78, while Route 151 can be found slightly further east at Sheridan & Wilson. For the CTA L, those looking to board the Red or Purple Lines will have access to Wilson station, just paces from the site across Broadway.
Atlas Industries served as demolition contractor for the existing building. No construction permits have yet been filed or issued, and a full completion timeline has not been announced.
