Full construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 2714 W Cortez Street in West Town. J.I.R. Enterprises Inc. is the filing owner, who is planning three total units, a rooftop deck, a back porch, and a basement. The property was formerly occupied by a single-story masonry building located in the rear of the lot.
Foundation work has begun for Inspire West Town, an eight-story mixed-use building located at 1140 W Erie Street near the southeast corner of West Town. Developer Bond Companies plans a combination of ground-level retail and 113 apartment units. As part of the Affordable Requirements Ordinance, the project will yield 23 affordable housing units, six of which will be part of the 113 on-site residences and the remaining 17 elsewhere in the neighborhood.
Full construction permits have been issued for a five-story mixed-use building located at 2709 W Division Street in West Town. Planned by the Brinshore Development under the name Paseo Boricua Arts LLC, the new structure is set to replace four masonry buildings varying between one and four floors.
Demolition permits were recently issued for a three-story masonry building at 462 N Morgan Street in West Town. Filed under the owner Baby Grand LLC, no plans have been published as to what will replace the multi-unit residential structure. However, the parcel is currently zoned for M2-2 Light Industry District, which allows for moderate manufacturing, warehouses, as well as freight and recycling facilities. M2-2 also permits a floor area ratio of 2.2, so that any new development may have up to 2.2 times the square footage as the containing lot. Currently it is unclear if the owner plans to apply for an amendment to change the designation.
Four separate construction permits have been issued for four adjacent residential buildings, located at 1437-43 N California Avenue near the northwest corner of West Town. Developed by 1437 North California LLC, each of the two-story buildings will include two units, a basement, a rooftop deck and enclosure, a rear wooden porch, and a detached three-car garage. All four residences will replace a currently vacant grass lot.
