Logan Square May Be Getting Its Largest Development Yet

A long blighted stretch of Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square may soon make way for a seven story mixed use development, which would become the neighborhood's largest if built. In March, developer Property Markets Group formally introduced its plan to construct the development at 2211 N. Milwaukee Avenue to a community group in the neighborhood, and now the developer has moved forward with a zoning application to build on the empty lot. The mixed use development will feature 135 apartment units, roughly 16,000 square feet of retail space and 141 parking spaces. The mid-rise apartment and retail development would certainly be the largest in the neighborhood by size and number of units, however it is not the only high density project on the table in Logan Square right now. In the proposal, the developer connects the project to the city's Milwaukee Avenue Corridor Plan, which was adopted by the Chicago Plan Commission in 2008. No doubt, the three quarter mile stretch of Milwaukee Avenue between Western and California in Logan Square could certainly use some love. Will this sizable mixed use project become the catalyst to the much needed change along Milwaukee Avenue that the city has longed for, or is it just plain out of place?
