A construction permit has been issued for a new residential development at 1405 E 65th Place in Woodlawn. Developed by DOM Properties Investment Inc., this project is one half of a dual-building development approved by the Chicago Plan Commission. The three-story structure, rising to 40 feet, will feature a basement and house five residential units.
Designed by the architectural firm led by Andy Kacprzynski, the building’s facade will be adorned with red brick veneer, accented by stone and cast concrete around windows and doors. Inside, the development will offer a range of two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom units. Lower-level units will feature duplex layouts with multiple living rooms, while the top-floor four-bedroom unit will occupy the entire space. Each unit will also have access to private balconies.
For amenities, the building will include an on-site masonry trash enclosure, a six-foot wooden fence, and a four-foot iron fence. Additionally, it will be equipped with an NFPA-13 sprinkler system. While the residences will not require affordable housing units due to falling below the threshold, the building will offer bicycle parking and electric vehicle charging stations.
The project will also provide five vehicle parking spaces, accessible from an existing alley and separated from the main building by a 17-foot-wide grass lawn. This is consistent with the structure’s occupancy class R-2 and construction class V-A designation.
As for transit options, future residents will enjoy good connectivity, with access to multiple CTA buses for Routes 5, 28, 63, 67, and 95, and Metra lines at 63rd Street. The upcoming Obama Presidential Center is also within walking distance.
With DOM Properties Investment also serving as the general contractor, construction will cost $1 million, according to the filing. An anticipated completion date has not been revealed.
