These plans include 129 total units, comprised of convertibles up through two-bedrooms. Out of the 129 on-site residences, 26 will be designated as affordable under ARO guidelines. There will also be a ground-level retail space, and various amenity spaces such as a ground-level area and a top-floor deck.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a new residential development at 5356 N Sheridan Road in Edgewater. Located on the southwest corner with W Balmoral Avenue, the new project will replace an existing two-story house most recently holding the Wing Hoe Restaurant and its surrounding parking lot.

The Chicago City Council has approved a new mixed-use development at 1912 W Division Street in Wicker Park. Located just west of the intersection with N Wolcott Avenue, the proposal will replace a surface parking lot currently used predominantly by the Red Square Baths next door.

Dubbed Encuentro Square, developer Latin United Community Housing Association (LUCHA) is working with Canopy Architecture and Site Design Group on the project, which has received some edits from the last time YIMBY reported on the design.
