Developers have scrapped plans for a hotel and are proposing fewer apartment units and more parking among other revisions to their delayed Wrigleyville project, Addison Park on Clark, this week. DNAInfo is reporting M & R Development, architects Soloman Cordwell Buenz, and RMK Management Co. have presented altered plans to the Southport Neighbors group, showcasing several modifications from the 2010 Planned Development approved by the City Council.
According to the development's website, the mixed-used project is now set to feature 148 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment units, 493 parking spaces, and 168,000 square feet of retail space. Also in the plans? A rooftop pool for residents and a health club. The development team is playing up that these changes will "dramatically lower the overall density of the project and significantly reduce the building's height along the Clark street corridor."
If all goes according to their plan, the necessary approvals would come through this fall, with construction starting in the spring. Even if they do nab the thumbs up from the city, the neighborhood jury's still out. Judging by reactions to the other construction popping up in the area, we're guessing they'll have plenty to say about it. Stay tuned.
