Construction permits have been issued for a new mixed-use development at 1950 W Lawrence Avenue in Lincoln Square. The project, owned by Northcenter Loan Acquisition LLC, will replace a single-story commercial building that received a demolition permit on March 14.

Designed by architect Jonathan D. Splitt, the five-story building will feature 12 residential units, ground-floor retail space, and private garage parking. The development will be classified as Type III-A construction, with occupancy designated as R-2. Details of the building’s design have not been disclosed, but the project will undergo field inspections and audits during construction.

The development’s location will provide close access to public transit, with bus stops for Routes 50 and 81 just paces to the west at Damen & Lawrence. The project is also located a four-minute walk from the Damen Brown Line station and a four-minute walk from the Ravenswood Metra station.

Midwest Heritage Builders, LLC will serve as the general contractor for the $2.25 million project. An anticipated completion date is not yet known.

  1. The accompanying photo clearly doesn’t show a vacant lot on the site

      You are right! Sorry this error has been corrected. Most often the buildings are demolished prior to construction permit issuance. We went further into the filings and see that no demo has yet been carried out for this one, nor should we have assumed so in the first place. Apologies for the oversight

      • A demo permit was absolutely issued for this, on 3/14. At 1952 W Lawrence. You cannot just look for the exact address only when doing this. Sometimes you have to look for adjacent addresses.

          I see it now – I widened the street number range to a few over / under when filtering, but still seemed to have missed the filing. I’ll go ahead and update accordingly. Thanks you for your patience on this one

  2. Why do you say this is taking the place of a vacant lot? Not only is it not in the Streetview phot you posted, it is not right now. I went by 5 days ago and the building is still standing with no construction fence up or any other sign of pending demolition. I’ve always thought there was something off about these VERY formulaic posts, but now I’m convinced they’re all AI written.

  3. Please build me that building for 2.25 million… they just don’t want to pay the proper permit fee

  4. Albany Park not North Center

    • Hi “Get it right,” we went back and checked and this project is actually in Lincoln Square, not Albany Park or North Center. Thank you for bringing this to our attention
