Yesterday, reps from Spearhead Properties formally presented their plan to replace a warehouse at 2501-19 West Armitage Avenue with a four story residential and retail complex to a community group in Logan Square. The two building mixed-use development will feature 6,500 square feet of ground level retail, 55 parking spaces and includes a total of 78 rental units, comprised largely of one and two bedroom apartments. The Antunovich Associates designed development calls for two buildings connected by ground level retail and a large landscaped courtyard in the center of the complex. In addition to the ground level green space, the development is planned to feature green roofs at the top of both buildings. Beyond the usual concerns over congestion and traffic, the consensus of the 25 residents who attended the West Bucktown Neighborhood Association meeting was largely positive. Spearhead reps attempted to ease concerns over congestion by discussing the complex as a transit oriented development, due to its close proximity to the Western Blue Line station. Rents are expected to start at $1,300 per month for a studio unit. According to Spearhead reps, the developer would like to demo the warehouse that currently sits on the property by this winter, and start construction of the development early next year.
