New permits have been issued for a mixed-use building planned for 5630 N Broadway in Edgewater. The building’s permit owner has been listed as 5630 N Broadway LLC. The property site is currently occupied by a vacant masonry building.

The permit lists Christopher Bremer as the architect of record for the build. Plans indicate this will be four-flat construction with a commercial space. Though renderings have not been made public we do know that there will be four exterior parking spaces at the rear of the building.

Future residents can board CTA Route 36 at the Broadway & Bryn Mawr/Ridge stop via a one-minute walk south. They can also access Route 84 at the Ridge & Broadway/Bryn Mawr stop which is on just opposite the street from the Broadway & Bryn Mawr/Ridge stop.

The CTA L Red Line can be accessed via a four-minute walk east to the Bryn Mawr station. At this time there are two access points as the station is still undergoing renovations. The future build is within a 10-minute walk of the Andersonville neighborhood as well as many popular restaurants and shops along Broadway.

Rainmaker Real Estate Holdings is serving as the general contractor for the $1.3 million project. Given the recency of the filling, a full timeline has not yet been revealed.

  1. Does this fall under the same absurd east side of Broadway restrictions that doomed the development proposed to replace the auto repair shop up the street?

    • Are you talking about the “Lakefront Protection Act?” Or is there yet another ridiculous oversight ordinance?

      • I think that’s something different. From what I remember, the Broadway-Ardmore-Ridge-Glenwood-Early neighborhood association succeeded at some point in downzoning the east side of Broadway in Edgewater up until at least Thorndale, maybe higher. Not sure if it extends this far south or not or maybe just north of Hollywood?

  2. I believe the O.P was referring to specific downsizing restrictions (right or wrong) that apply to parts of Broadway in the Edgewater neighborhood. But what do you have against the Lakefront Protection Ordinance. It’s not perfect, but it’s designed to keep the lakefront parks, trails, beaches, harbors and shoreline open to the public and free of excessive private or commercial development.

    • What I have against the ‘Lakefront Protection’ ordinance is that it’s abused to make buildings that have nothing to do with the lakefront be subjected to another body of scrutiny that may downsize or kill off projects in the name of (protection?)

      It triggers projects like Parkline in the Loop and nowhere near the lakefront, which was an as-of-right development have to submit to review by another body that can alter plans, have something downsized or rejected on recommendations if not by declaration.

      Projects on Clark and even further away have to be reviewed. All it does is create more deterrence for urban development that is irrelevant to protecting the lakefront and ordinances like this along with restrictive zoning undoubtedly drives away droves of would be investors who aren’t built for long legal battles.

      A major problem with legacy cities is this notion that everybody and their mother has some sort of claim to what land-uses are acceptable and what isn’t. Between the city and the citizens people want to dictate to developers what will be tolerated. Not-in-my-backyard became not-in-my-neighborhood and finally not-in-my city as we saw with the casino, the Lucas Museum, the Obama Center, the Spire replacement towers and so-on. Chicago has lost massive investments throughout the years due to this and has fallen far behind its peers in many aspects of city-building.
