Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story frame residence located at 2653 N Orchard Street in Lincoln Park. Martin Sean Roman is the listed owner behind the multi-unit structure and detached frame garage. While the plans for the site are not currently known, it does fall under the RT-4 zoning district, which allows for two-flats, townhouses, low-density apartment buildings, and single family homes. RT-4 also permits a floor area ratio of 1.2, whereby any new development may have up to 1.2 times the floor area of the containing parcel. It is unclear if the owner will seek a zoning amendment for the property to allow for higher density.
