Permit Issued for 1844 N Ridgeway Avenue in Logan Square
A construction permit has been issued for a new residential building at 1844 N Ridgeway Avenue in Logan Square, marking the first step in the broader Encuentro Square affordable housing plan. The approved permit calls for a six-story apartment building with 57 dwelling units, replacing a now-demolished Magid Glove and Safety factory. Under development by the Latin United Community Housing (LUCHA) and Evergreen Real Estate Group, this first phase will also feature a second four-story building with an additional 32 units. As noted in a CBS News article, 55 of these first phase units will be available to people on the Chicago Housing Authority waitlist. Meanwhile, a later phase of the project will bring the total unit count up to 187.
