As developer Morningside Group continues its conversion of Uptown’s former Graeme Stewart School into 64 residential units, the firm has taken the wraps off of a plan to construct a new mid-rise transit-oriented development (TOD) right next door. Known by its address of 1030 W. Sunnyside Avenue, the 128-foot proposal would include 144 rental units, 2,400 square feet of ground floor retail space, a green roof, amenity deck, and just seven parking spaces.
Designed by Chicago-based architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch, the modern-looking development is rendered with a facade of white and grayscale panels and a somewhat unusual mix of different sized windows. The new structure would stand in dramatic contrast to the adjacent 1905 former school building.
The 1030 W. Sunnyside proposal will require a zoning change to move forward. According to Uptown Update, the plan will be discussed at a future open house as well as go before the Clarendon Park Neighborhood Association and the 46th Ward Zoning Committee prior to Alderman James Cappleman taking a position on the development.
