A permit was approved earlier this week for a new three-story residential building at 4950 S Michigan Avenue in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood. The owner is listed as Amy Chin and plans indicate this project will yield three total units, each with a rear open porch. Additionally, the permits include a detached three-car garage. The development will replace a vacant lot.
Gary Wands was listed as the architect of record. Plans indicate a masonry facade although drawings and renderings have yet to be disclosed.
