Demolition permits were issued on Thursday to remove a masonry residence and a detached garage located at 1528 N Elk Grove Avenue in the West Town neighborhood. The owner is listed as Volo Holdings. We previously reported on permits issued for a multi-unit building that will include two total units, a basement level, a rooftop deck with pergolas, front and rear decks, and a detached two-vehicle garage with its own rooftop deck.
Future residents will find bus service for Route 72 at the intersection of North Avenue & Wolcott, within a one-minute walk as the stop is situated just north of the site. The closest rail access is a five-minute walk east to the CTA Damen station where the Blue Line can be boarded. There are many shops and restaurants along N Milwaukee Avenue.
Demox Inc is acting as the demolition contractor on the project. No permits have been filed for any new builds at this location.
