Permits were issued on Thursday for a three-story residential building located at 4900 N Kenmore Avenue in Uptown. Permits for the development were issued to Variable Properties LLC, and will involve seven dwelling units with balconies, a basement, a shared rooftop deck, and two detached one-story masonry garages. The first garage will house five parking spaces and will have its own rooftop deck. The second garage will offer two additional spaces. The lot is currently vacant.
Vari Architects designed the project. This is a full-masonry building that features a dark brick facade, protruding balconies, and stone accents. The building will also have large windows throughout to allow for light and airflow. This design mirrors a recently wrapped project by the same team at 4937 N Winthrop Avenue.
Future residents will be able to easily connect to transit options.The nearest CTA L station is Argyle, where the Red line can be boarded. The station is a four-minute walk northwest. For CTA bus, residents will find Route 151 at the Sheridan & Ainslie via a three-minute walk east. Those looking for green space will also find Buttercup Park a four-minute walk east of the property site.
Variable Properties LLC is also serving as general contractor on the project. According to the construction permit issued the construction costs will be $436,000. A full timeline on completion is unavailable, however the upcoming units are listed.
