The occupying owner, filed under Michael Bisbee in the project’s renovation permits, is planning to repurpose the former masonry warehouse to a large assembly restaurant, spanning over 14,000 square feet in total. The development will also host a street-facing outdoor patio on the second floor.

Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 5528 W Gettysburg Street in Jefferson Park. The owner, filed under 5249 Milwaukee LLC, plans three residences for the building, as well as parking for seven vehicles. The permit’s corresponding property appears to match that of 5241-49 N Milwaukee Avenue, whose owners in 2018 had requested a zoning ordinance to convert the zoning designation from B3-1 to B2-3. However, this past proposal listed four total units and eight parking spaces, suggesting that the project scope has since been updated.
