Another nineteen rental apartments are headed to Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood as a new five-story building at the corner of Fullerton and Maplewood avenues prepares to break ground. Designed by Chicago-based Vari Architects, the newly-permitted project at 2529 W. Fullerton replaces a pair of older two-story buildings.
The new development will feature a mix of two- and three-bedroom apartments ranging between 1,100-1,300 square feet in size. Rents are expected to run around $2,500 per month, reported DNAinfo during the project’s approval process. The mixed-use building will also include a ground floor commercial space where developer Stuart Miller plans to locate management offices.
While much of the new apartment construction taking place in Logan Square has been driven by transit-oriented developments near the CTA Blue Line stop along the hot Milwaukee Avenue corridor, the project at 2529 W. Fullerton is too far from a train station to qualify for a parking reduction under Chicago’s TOD ordinance. Instead, the building’s 19 residential units will be joined by a parking garage for 19 cars and 10 bicycles.
