Atrium Village Gets The Go-Ahead

New, 13 comments

Big News: The overhaul of the mixed-income Atrium Village complex, built in the 1970s, has been green-lighted by the Chicago Plan Commission. The plan calls for four highrises of 28, 36, 41 and 44 stories that would bring a total of 1,500 units to the seven-acre site at Division and Wells . In keeping with Atrium Village's spirit of providing housing to folks from different income levels, the new development will dedicate 20 percent of the units to affordable housing. Plans also include a 2-acre public park, designed by Hitchcock Design Group. Phase one, planned for the southwest corner of Division and Wells, could be completed within the next couple of years. And, fortunately, all of the 1,300 parking spaces will be tucked underground. Next stop: City Council for a final vote. [Sun-Times, previously]
