The Permit Review Committee has approved plans to convert the former Immaculata High School at 640 W Irving Park Road in Uptown for residential use. As previously reported, the redevelopment efforts are led by KGiles LLC and CA Ventures. Local firms Perkins Eastman and Level Architecture are assisting with the design of the mid-rise.
The project will yield a 22-story senior living high-rise with 192 units to be built on the American Islamic College’s existing parking lot. The existing school building was designated a city landmark in 1983 and will be converted into an additional 245 apartments. The landmark designation encompasses all parts of the school and additions but did not specify the scope of protection. It has been determined that exterior elevations, as well as the central lobby’s cast iron stair and two-story auditorium, are the significant features to be protected from demolition or alteration.
