An eight-story mixed use development from developer Dave Gassman and Jonathan Splitt Architects is headed to the southeast corner of Broadway and Sheridan in Chicago’s Lakeview community thanks to a newly issued construction permit. While the project initially rose no higher than 80 feet and featured 93 residential units and a retail/office component back when it was approved by the 46th Ward’s local zoning and development committee in early 2015, the plan has grown considerably since.
The development slated for 3833 N. Broadway is now expected to rise 111 feet and feature 134 dwelling units plus ground floor retail and two levels of below grade parking. The site’s existing two-story 1911 Isaac G. Ettleson building with its terracotta eagle ornamentation will be demolished. The developer hopes to preserve and re-incorporate the old structure’s historic upper facade into the new building.
This latest project is located just across the street from a shuttered gas station at 3901 N. Broadway that has also been tapped for mixed-use redevelopment. A plan from Vermilion Development to build a 10-story, 100-unit building on that adjacent corner was passed by the Chicago Plan Commission in June of this year.
