The old Cabrini-Green neighborhood may be taking yet another step away from tumbleweeds and toward a modern residential neighborhood. A venture of Conlon & Co. has proposed a condo project on a site at Sedgwick and Locust streets, Crains is reporting. The building at 873 N. Sedgwick St, designed by Axios Architects & Consultants Ltd., would have two-bedroom, two-bathroom units with balconies, as well as a deck area and dog run. According to a zoning application and CoNNect, the building will be an ADA-accessible 6-story condo building with 40 residential units using metal panels, brick masonry, aluminum frame windows and simulated wood panels on the façade. Though the brick double-towered St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church has been at the corner for more than 100 years, it's been closed since 1990. The spot is currently owned by the Archdiocese of Chicago. If zoning changes and a sale go as planned, construction could begin in spring 2015 with occupancy in fall 2016.
