A new four-story residential building has received a permit in the Edgewater neighborhood. This eight-unit structure, developed by PFH Homes, will replace a vacant lot. According to the Edgewater Historical Society, a late-19th-century, two-story frame residence once stood at the site, but was demolished in 2007.

The listed architect of record is Michael S Cox. Though no visual designs have been revealed, the filing does mention that the $1.6 million construction will be masonry. Other listed features include balconies, a six-foot-tall masonry trash enclosure, and a detached three-vehicle garage. There will be a total of four on-site parking spaces, with the fourth being an exterior parking stall.

Bus service in the vicinity includes the Broadway & Balmoral intersection with service for Route 36, via a three-minute walk southwest. Other bus lines for Routes 135, 147, and 151 are all available at Sheridan & Balmoral via a four-minute walk east. For Red Line CTA transit, Bryn Mawr can be accessed via a five-minute walk north.

PFH Homes will also serve as the general contractor. An anticipated completion date has not been announced.

  1. One can only hope this new structure won’t be another fat, detail-less clunky box: the building on the left has so many elegant details to use as a springboard for making a contextual design.

  2. I wonder what the story was about this lot. It’s interesting to see a vacant lot in such an expensive area.
