A transit-oriented development planned for a lot near the Congress Theater in Logan Square recently received a go-ahead from the city, moving the 120-unit mixed-user with the pretentious, self-applied nickname "L" forward. Backed by New York-based Property Markets Group, which recently announced plans for a massive apartment complex in Pilsen, the project may become the first of several projects to break ground in the fast-developing Milwaukee Avenue Corridor in Logan Square. Set for a spring 2016 opening, the Brininstool + Lynch-designed building with a modernist facade, which is shooting for LEED certification, was significantly reshaped due to community feedback. The debate over the development echoes the unease felt in the area due to impending changes from a bevy of new construction projects lined up from Armitage to Logan Boulevard, such as the dual tower TOD up the street, which will radically alter the look of the neighborhood.
