After a plan to build a 160-unit transit-oriented apartment project failed to win over Noble Square residents and 27th Ward Alderman Walter Burnett Jr., Chicago’s Polish Roman Catholic Union has settled on a new plan and developer for its 50,000-square-foot vacant lot along the 1300 block of W. Walton Street.

The latest proposal from Noah Properties would deliver 47 for-sale condos spread across seven six-unit condo buildings plus one structure containing five units of affordable housing. Designed by Axios Architects and Consultants, the development would also include parking for 49 vehicles.

In addition to pivoting from the previous plan presented earlier this year by Naperville-based developer the Marquette Companies, the Polish Roman Catholic Union has also reached a deal to sell the land to Noah for $5 million, reports Alisa Hauser of DNAinfo.

The proposal still needs the blessing of the Eckhart Park Committee Council and—more importantly—the backing of Alderman Burnett to move forward.
