Renderings have been revealed for a revised residential development at 5354 N Sheridan Road in Edgewater. Located at the intersection of N Sheridan Road and W Balmoral Avenue, the corner lot is currently home to the Wing Hoe Restaurant. Tempus Properties is the developer behind the proposal.
Designed by 2RZ Architecture, the new plan calls for a five-story entirely residential development. Holding 50 units, the building will feature 34 one-bedroom apartments and 16 two-bedroom residences. Additionally, 25 parking spaces will be provided on the ground floor, with a bike repair room off of the lobby.
Rising 74 feet, the new edifice will be a combination of fiber cement panel and metal paneling. Windows will be cased in black frames in an punched opening expression. Balconies will hang from the facade in most cases, with a few balconies recessed into the footprint of the massing.
The proposal comes after an earlier version of the development stalled in 2019 after being denied a rear setback variance by the Zoning Board of Appeals. The earlier plan called for 50 units, but rose only four floors and had 21 parking stalls. No retail space has been planned in either version.
The new proposition will need aldermanic and zoning approval. A timeline for the construction has not been announced.
