The Chicago City Council has approved a new residential development at 2414 N Sawyer Avenue in Logan Square. Located just north of the intersection with W Fullerton Avenue, the new project replaces a vacant lot adjacent to a historical courtyard building behind the Social Security Administration office. Developer P3 Properties is working with local design firm McGrath Architects on the new building, which will mark an end to the over 50 years that the site has remained empty.
The project itself has gone through a few iterations after input from the neighboring community on its initial design including a removal of units as previously covered, and now once again for the rezoning application. The approval converts the site from its current zoning of RS3 Residential Single-Unit (Detached House) to that of B2-3 Neighborhood Mixed-Use District, allowing the developer to construct the multi-unit development. The updated design has increased the unit count from nine to 10 in total, with the 19,161-square-foot structure still rising four stories at 46 feet tall.
Aimed at small families, the 10 for-sale residential units will consist of nine three-bedroom layouts ranging from 1,632 square feet to 2,439 square feet in size, and one 2,509-square-foot four-bedroom plan. Residents will have access to a 10-vehicle parking lot located in the rear of the first floor accessed from the side alleys, along with balconies at the front and rear of the structure.
Those living in the masonry and metal panel-clad building can access crucial public transportation nearby including bus service for CTA Route 74 via a three-minute walk away, Route 82 via a five-minute walk away, and the CTA Blue Line at Logan Square station via a nine-minute walk away. As part of the agreements for the project, the developer will be providing a $25,000 donation to local green spaces, however at the moment neither a groundbreaking nor construction timeline is known.
