Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story masonry building at 3654-56 W Belmont Avenue in Avondale. Wilmot Construction Inc. is the owner, whose plans involve a four-story mixed-use building with 2,100 square feet of ground-level retail and nine dwellings on the three upper floors. Residences will range from two- to three-bedrooms units, each of which will come with a balcony. Plans also include a rooftop deck and nine parking spaces integrated on the ground floor.
Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story masonry mixed-use building, located at Avondale‘s 3407 W Belmont Avenue. So Holdings LLC is the listed owner, whose plans for the site are not yet known. However, the lot is currently zoned for C1-1 Neighborhood Commercial District, which allows for retail storefronts and apartments on the above floors. C1-1 allows for a maximum height of 38 feet and a floor area ratio (FAR) of 1.2. A FAR of 1.2 permits any new development to have up to 20 percent more square footage than the area of the lot itself.
A zoning ordinance was approved last month for 2510 W George Street in Avondale, allowing the planned four-story residential building to proceed. Planned by Thomas Plunkett, the project will include four total units, a rooftop deck, a stairway/elevator enclosure, and an attached four-car garage. Currently, the property is occupied by a vacant lot. The now-approved ordinance requested a reduction of the required rear setback from 30 feet to zero feet.
