A vacant Andersonville lot and a pair of low-rise auto repair shops comprise the site of a proposed four-story transit-oriented development (TOD) at the northwest corner of Clark and Ainslie. The fairly conservative looking brick-clad proposal comes from Chicago-based Axios Architects and Consultants and features ground floor retail, parking for 29 cars, and 54 rental apartments. Unit mix consists of three studios, 36 one-bedroom units, and 15 two-bedroom units with monthly rents expected to range between $1400 and $2600.
Although the development’s requested zoning change (from a combination C1-2/B3-2 to a uniform B3-3 TOD designation) must ultimately be approved by the Chicago City Council, any Windy City project tends get easier if and when local neighborhood groups get on board. In the case of 4906 N. Clark, Edgeville Buzz reported that the Winona Foster Carmen Winnemac Block Club recently signed off on the proposal. Provided everything else goes smoothly, the mixed-use building could break ground by spring of 2018.
