A construction permit has been approved for a multifamily residential development to be built at 5829 S Wabash Avenue in Washington Park. The property will soon host a two-story, two-unit building with a basement, replacing an empty lot that was once occupied by a two-story frame building (demolished late 2014). The owner of this development is Shatha Williams, as detailed in the permit filing.
John Hanna of Hanna Architects is the architect for the project. While specifics about the design remain sparse, the filing description indicates that the project will feature a detached two-vehicle garage and a basement.
The location offers access to multiple bus routes, with the nearest being Route 29 both a three-minute walk northwest and southwest. Other nearby lines include 3, 55, and 59. It is also positioned within walking distance of the CTA Green and Red Lines’ respective Garfield Stations, each approximately a 15-minute walk away.
Greenline Homes LLC has been listed as the general contractor for the project, with the reported construction cost at $432,300. A project completion timeline has not been made available.
