A plan to replace a pair of empty Bronzeville lots with two residential developments featuring a total of 12 dwelling units earned the approval of the Chicago Plan Commission this month. The four-unit building proposed for 3745 S. Lake Park Avenue and the eight-unit structure at nearby 3759 S. Lake Park both come from Tampa-based developer Grus Corporation and Northbrook’s AP Architects LLC. The properties are a short walk from newly completed community amenities such as the Ellis Par Arts and Recreation Center and the serpentine 35th Street bike and pedestrian bridge that connects the South Side community to Chicago’s lakefront parkland, beaches, and trails.

Though the Chicago Plan Commission agenda was comparatively light for November, the Bronzeville duo weren’t the only new projects approved. The group also OK’d a zoning change for a 110,000-square-foot processing facility and warehouse for Amigos Foods in Chicago’s Gage Park neighborhood. A Lakefront Protection Ordinance application for a Lincoln Park condo development also got the nod. Slated for 441-447 W. Arlington Place, the project launched sales for its eight luxury units last month.
