A three-story mixed-use building was granted a construction permit this week in the North Side neighborhood of Avondale. Cleared to rise at 3016 W. Belmont Avenue, the development would replace the single-story Honey Baked Ham building and adjacent vacant parcels.
Containing nine residential units, 1,200 square feet of commercial space, and nine parking spaces, the building comes from Lakeview-based developer Barrett Homes. Architect 360 Design Studio LLC is behind the mostly brick design.
A zoning change for the site was introduced in February and passed the full Chicago City Council in May. The newly issued building permit estimates the scope of the project at more than $3.4 million.
In other Avondale news, plans appear to be in the works to upgrade the current PNC Bank branch about a mile west with a new two-story bank building, parking lot, and drive-through ATM lanes. Proposed for the northeast corner of Belmont and Milwaukee avenues, the new complex comes from the architecture firm of GPD Group.
