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.
