Since YIMBY’s last update, brick facade work has made significant progress at Broadway Youth Center, a new five-story interdisciplinary wellness center by Howard Brown Health. Situated at 1023 W Irving Park Road in Lake View, the project will be geared towards LGBTQ youth ages 12-24, particularly those who do not have stable housing situations.
Remaining brickwork is currently underway for Wrigleyville Lofts, located at 949 W Dakin Street in Lake View. Developed by Draper & Kramer, the seven-story mixed-use project will house 13,000 square feet of retail, partitioned into four available units ranging from 1,400 to 2,500 square feet. The fifth and largest unit will be a nearly 6,000-square-foot Ace Hardware, which previously occupied the one-story building located on the property.
Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story frame residence located at 3243 N Lakewood Avenue near the center of Lake View. The owner has been filed under 3243 N Lakewood LLC. Plans for the replacement have not been announced, although the property is currently zoned for RT-3.5 Residential Two-Flat, Townhouse, and Multi-Unit District. This designation allows for two-flats, townhouses, low-density apartment buildings, and single family homes. RT-3.5 also permits a floor area ratio of 1.05, whereby any new building may have five percent more square footage than the area of the lot itself.
Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential development located at 3219 N Seminary Avenue in Lake View. 1631 Oakley LLC is the listed owner, who plans six total units, along with a front and rooftop deck, a basement, and a six-car detached garage with a separate rooftop deck. The new construction is set to replace a pair of masonry buildings and a grass plot.
Permits have been issued for a new three-story residential building located at 3731 N Kenmore Avenue in Lake View, just north of Wrigleyville. With its permit listed under the owner name 3731 Kenmore LLC, the three-unit project will come with a basement, a rooftop deck and stair enclosure, a front balcony, and a rear porch and staircase spanning the full height. Previously, the site was occupied by a two-story frame residence and a detached frame garage.
