Construction permits were recently issued for a three-story residential building at 3229 N Racine Avenue in Lake View. Paul Coen is the listed owner, who has planned three total units, a rooftop deck, and a three-car garage with a separate rooftop deck. Prior to development, the site was occupied by a two-floor frame residential building.
Permits were filed in July for 4930 N Damen Avenue in Ravenswood, where a three-story residential building is planned. The narrow site is a one-minute walk north from bus route 8’s Damen & Argyle stop. Nearby Metra access includes Ravenswood station, a nine-minute walk southeast. Nearby CTA L access is a seven-minute walk directly south to Damen station. Another point of interest is the nearby Winnemac Park, a two-minute walk north. Additionally, just a 14-minute walk southwest is the major Lincoln Square intersection of N Western Avenue, W Lawrence Avenue, and N Lincoln Avenue, which hosts a multitude of restaurants, bars, and shops.
