New construction permits were issued this week for a new two-story frame duplex along with a detached frame garage at 1940 N Sawyer Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been listed as Karli Mayher and indicates that the garage will also include a roof deck. The lot is currently occupied by a frame structure.
Scott Shalvis is listed as the architect of record. As of now, no drawings or renderings have been made public. However, the filing’s two masonry contractors suggest the building will involve a brick facade.
The closest bus service available is Route 73 at the intersection of Armitage & Sawyer which is a one-minute walk north of the property site. The CTA Blue Line can be boarded at the California station via a 20-minute walk east of the property site. Those looking for green space can stop at Palmer Square Park which is within a 10-minute walk northeast. There are many dining and retail options within five minutes of the property along W Armitage Avenue.
KJM Construction will be acting as the general contractor on the build which reportedly cost $500,000. A full timeline for the project has not been announced.
