Dual demolition permits have been issued for two adjacent multi-unit buildings located at 2454-56 W Ainslie Street in Lincoln Square. Both permits list Eamon Gibbons as the owner, whose plans for the properties have not yet been published. However, both parcels are zoned for RS-3 Residential Single-Unit District, which allows for detached single family homes and two-flats. This designation also allows for a floor area ratio of 0.9, by which any new building’s square footage may not exceed 90 percent that of the lot itself.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a residential development located at 5950 N Sheridan Road in Edgewater. Facing N Sheridan Road, the midblock lot is located between W Thorndale Avenue and W Glenlake Avenue. Edgewater Acquisitions LLC is the developer behind the proposal.
Renovation permits have been issued for an existing three-story masonry building at 2435 S Leavitt Street in Lower West Side’s Heart of Chicago neighborhood. Filed under the owner Bader Leavitt LLC, the mixed-use structure will be converted to house nine residential units and will include a new metal porch and stairs.
Structural work has reached the fourth floor for 949 W Dakin Street, a seven-story mixed-use project planned by Draper & Kramer and located in Lake View. Programming will consist of 13,000 square feet of commercial space at ground level, divided into 1,300- and 2,200-square-foot units. The six upper floors will house a total of 120 apartments, 108 of which will be single bedrooms and the remaining 12 as two-bedrooms.
