Permits have been issued for two adjacent single-family homes, part of a larger 12-home development by Lexington Homes. These two new Lake View residences, located at 1225 and 1227 W School Street, will each stand three stories and will be designed by Laszlo Simovic Architects, LLC. As noted in permit descriptions, features for these houses will include basements, five-foot high fences, and two-car frame garages with rooftop decks.
Developer Lexington Homes reveals plans for a new residential development at 1225 W School Street in Lake View. The local company bought the land that once held the Craftsman Plating & Tinning office and plant from a previous developer whose similar plans were cancelled earlier this year. Dubbed the ‘Lakeview Collection’, the plot of land fronts both W School Street to the north and W Melrose Street to the south with its longest side facing a public alley to the west.
