Permits were issued yesterday for a new three-story residential building at 855 N Paulina Street in West Town. The lot is currently occupied by a two-story masonry residence. The permit owner is listed as The Alverna Group, LLC and plans indicate that the scope of the project will include three total units, a basement level, a rooftop deck with an enclosed staircase, and a detached three-car garage with its own rooftop deck.
Ronald Vari is the architect of record. As of now, no drawings or renderings have been posted, however, the filing’s two masonry contractors suggest the building will involve a brick exterior.
Future residents will have CTA L access for the Blue Line at Chicago station via a 16-minute walk east. The nearest bus service is Route 66 and can be accessed via a two-minute walk south at the Chicago & Paulina stop. Those looking to enjoy dining and retail options can find a plethora of offerings along nearby Ashland and Chicago Avenues.
Desmond Builders is acting as the general contractor behind the reportedly $390,000 construction. A timeline or completion date for the project has not yet been released.
