Initial details have been revealed for a residential development at 5451 N Ravenswood Avenue in Edgewater. Located just south of the intersection with W Catalpa Avenue, the new proposal will replace a large vacant lot at the westernmost edge of the neighborhood. Developer Sigma Builders Inc. is working with local firm IURO & Associates on its design.
A new four-story residential building has received a permit in the Edgewater neighborhood. This eight-unit structure, developed by PFH Homes, will replace a vacant lot. According to the Edgewater Historical Society, a late-19th-century, two-story frame residence once stood at the site, but was demolished in 2007.
The Chicago City Council has approved the final landmark designation for the Epworth Church at 5153 N Kenmore Avenue in Edgewater. Located south of the intersection with W Berwyn Avenue near Foster Beach, demolition efforts last year by a developer trying to construct residential on the site set-off the landmark process. Now the City Council has officially protected the structure which does not close it off to redevelopment opportunities.
A second permit has been issued for a residential project at 6044 N Winthrop Avenue in the Edgewater neighborhood, replacing the existing surface parking lot. The property, under development by North Park Ventures, will be developed into a five-story structure providing both retail and residential spaces. The scope envisions 60,000 square feet of space, accommodating 64 residential units and 35 parking spaces.
A final landmark recommendation has been made by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks for the Epworth Church at 5153 N Kenmore Avenue in Edgewater. Located south of the intersection with W Berwyn Avenue near Foster Beach, the structure’s landmark efforts were set off due to a demolition permit applied for last year by an undisclosed developer. Now the commission has recommended the approval of its landmark status to the church and adjoining community house.
