Permits were recently issued for a new two-story multi-family residential building at East Garfield Park‘s 2636 W Adams Street. Owner Cornel Korda plans for three total units, along with an accessory three-car garage.

This past February, the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks, and Building Standards approved an ordinance to convert the property from M1-2 Limited Manufacturing/Business Park District to B2-3 Neighborhood Mixed-Use District.
