Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 817 N Rockwell Street in West Town. The filing owner has been listed as 817 N. Rockwell LLC, with plans for three dwellings, a basement, a rooftop deck and stair enclosure, and a detached three-car garage with a separate rooftop deck. The development is set to replace a two-floor masonry residential building.
John Hanna of Hanna Architects is the architect of record. While no drawings or renderings have been published, multiple masonry contractors in the filing suggest a possible brick or stone design. The filing description has also indicated balconies along all three floors of the rear exterior.
Nearby bus access consists of east and westbound service for Route 66, a one-minute walk south to the Chicago & Rockwell intersection. Additional nearby service is available for Routes 49 and X49 to the east and Routes 65 and 94 to the west. While no CTA L service is within walking distance, those looking to board the Metra will find Western Avenue via a 12-minute walk southeast.
Nearby parks include Smith Park and the 207-acre Humboldt Park, located to the south and northwest, respectively.
Schiller Development Inc is serving as general contractor for the $775,900 development, whose timeline has not yet been revealed.
