Transit-oriented condo development proposed for Uptown

Despite being a TOD, the five-story project at 4537 N. Clark Street features a surprising amount of parking

Situated between the CTA Red and Brown Lines in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, a single story commercial building at 4537 N. Clark Street could give way to a taller condo development. Based on information posted to the website of 48th Ward Alderman James Cappleman, developer The Longford Group along with Stoneberg & Gross Architects are planning a five-story project at the site.

The team is seeking a zoning change from its current C1-2 designation to B3-3 Transit Oriented Development (TOD). While the vast majority of Chicago’s recent TOD projects have featured rental apartments and reduced levels of on-site parking, the Uptown project looks to build 24 three-bedroom condominium units with a 1:1 parking ratio.

The 4537 N. Clark Street project’s location near transit, however, does allow for a bump in allowable density and overall building height. Under the same requested zoning, the developer could theoretically build up to 51 smaller dwelling units. The plan would also feature ground floor retail along Clark.

According to Uptown Update, the proposal will be discussed at an upcoming community meeting to be hosted by the Sheridan Park Neighbors Association. It is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00 PM at Courtenay Language Arts Elementary School at 4420 N. Beacon Street.
