An unnamed Chicago developer is eyeing the intersection of North Broadway and Sheridan Road near Uptown for 90 residential units and nearly 2,000 square feet of retail. The proposed development came up at Tuesday night's East Lakeview Neighbors meeting (the same gathering that prompted some negative feedback in regards to a Wrigley extension patio over Sheffield), according to Lakeview's Patch.
Ald. James Cappleman's Special Projects Manager Abby Sullivan reportedly introduced plans for the seven-story tower that would stand in place of an existing Mobil station at the site across from the Chateau Hotel, which is set to undergo a transformation of its own. Initial proposals for the structure include a rooftop garden over the garage on the second floor and studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. With local public transit in mind, only 50 parking spots would be available in the building's garage, a feature that would necessitate a zoning change to bypass requirements to accommodate every unit with a space before work can move forward.
We'll keep an eye on what transpires.
