A permit has been issued for P3 Properties to construct a nine-unit, three-story residential building at 2414 N Sawyer Avenue in Logan Square. The development will take place on a vacant lot, which has remained undeveloped for over 50 years and is bordered by alleys on three sides. The lot is situated between a multi-story courtyard building to the north and a single-story Social Security office building to the south. McGrath Architects, the co-developer and designer, will work with P3 Properties on the project.

The development was altered after feedback from the 35th ward residents. The initial proposal included a four-and-a-half-story, 52-foot-tall structure with 14 units, but the plan has been reduced by around 40 percent. The final design will now be a three-and-a-half-story, 42-foot-tall building accommodating nine condos.

The nine condos will have different floor plans, with duplex units on the first floor featuring a garden-level floor. All residents will have access to an elevator from a small lobby area with a mailroom. Each unit will include a single covered parking spot, storage space, and access to a ground-floor bicycle storage room, as well as a communal rooftop deck.

To support affordable housing, one of the nine units will be designated as affordable, despite the development not meeting the threshold that mandates the inclusion of an affordable housing unit. The Chicago Community Land Trust will manage this unit, selling it to a buyer earning below 120 percent of the area’s median income. Additionally, P3 Properties will contribute $25,000 to local green spaces, including a nearby community garden.

The location of the building provides convenient bus access to various CTA routes: Route 74 on W Fullerton Avenue, a three-minute walk away, Route 82, a five-minute walk away, and the CTA Blue Line at Logan Square station, a nine-minute walk away. New residents will also have easy access to amenities such as retailer Target and a range of restaurants on N Milwaukee Avenue.

Simple Home Builders is serving as the general contractor, with no official completion date yet confirmed.

  1. These look pretty handsome! Amazing what a little cornice can do

  2. Great work 35th ward NIMBYs! 14 units probably could have supported two affordable units, instead of just one.

      I say if they can’t afford it they shouldn’t be living there thats why if you have money like the Jeffersons you’ll be movin on up free things shouldn’t be givin to anybody you gotta work for it

      • Just because someone earns less money than others doesn’t mean they aren’t working incredibly hard. Your unkindness is showing.
