Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story frame residence located at 3243 N Lakewood Avenue near the center of Lake View. The owner has been filed under 3243 N Lakewood LLC. Plans for the replacement have not been announced, although the property is currently zoned for RT-3.5 Residential Two-Flat, Townhouse, and Multi-Unit District. This designation allows for two-flats, townhouses, low-density apartment buildings, and single family homes. RT-3.5 also permits a floor area ratio of 1.05, whereby any new building may have five percent more square footage than the area of the lot itself.
