A new construction permit was issued on Tuesday for a three-story residential building located at 4129 S Wabash Avenue in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood. The owner of the permit is listed as 4123 S Wabash LLC, and current plans indicate this project will produce three total units. This will be a masonry build and will have open metal porches at the rear, as well as a six-foot-tall wooden fencing and three parking spots. The building will replace a vacant lot.
