Construction permits have been issued for a new four-story residential development at Old Town‘s 1526 N Wieland Street. The filing owner, listed under Development Group, LLC – Old Town Branch, has planned eight integrated units, an elevator, a rooftop deck with a stair/elevator enclosure, a front balcony on the first floor, a rear balcony on the second and third floors, and an eight-car garage with a partial rooftop deck.
The building’s designs by Hanna Architects have not been revealed, though the multiple masonry contractors listed in the permit suggest a stone or brick facade.
Beyond the planned eight-car garage, transportation options will also include bus service for Routes 9 and 72, located at either the North Ave and North Park intersection via a two-minute walk northwest or the North Ave & Wells intersection via a two-minute walk northeast. Also within close walking distance are Routes 22, 36, 73, and 156 to the northeast, as Route 37 to the northwest. Meanwhile, access can be found for the CTA L Brown and Purple Lines at Sedgwick station via a five-minute walk west. Anyone looking to board Red Line trains also have walking access to the Clark/Division subway station, a 12-minute walk southeast.
BM UK Enterprise Company is serving as general contractor behind the reportedly $2,630,300 development. An anticipated timetable for the structure is not yet known.

Normally, I’d expect to be railing against the demolition of another perfectly re-usable building. But that is one odd 80s homage to classic Chicago architecture meets suburban track home construction.
