Months after receiving approval from the Chicago Plan Commission, the new dual tower transit-oriented development for Logan Square has just been issued its first building permits to begin work on the foundations. Originally proposed to stand at 14 and 10 stories, the final plan and building permits allow for 12- and 11-story mid-rise towers. Designed by Wheeler Kearns Architects, who also worked with the same developers on 1611 W. Division, the dark glass towers will deliver 213 rental units, 68 parking spaces and about 9,000 square feet of retail space.
At community meetings, the project became a beacon of criticism for its height, its density and for representing the runaway gentrification of the Logan Square neighborhood. The battle over the towers is long over and soon enough, Logan Square residents will see this project join a slew of others looking to plant themselves near Blue Line stations along Milwaukee Avenue.
