The unprecedented wave of new construction taking place along Chicago’s Milwaukee Avenue is about to add another rental offering to the mix in the form of a 100-unit apartment building at 2835-2845 W. Belden Avenue in Logan Square.

The six-story residential project from co-developers Barry Sidel and Mark Ordower landed its full, $10 million building permit on Thursday. The structure replaces a handful of buildings next to the Blue Line that were demolished over the winter.

Designed by Chicago’s FitzGerald Associates Architects, the transit-oriented development will feature a green roof and communal deck for resident and parking for just 30 vehicles. Ten percent of units will be offered at an affordable rate, in compliance with the city’s Affordable Requirement Ordinance.

The redevelopment of the Logan Square site been in discussion for some time. The project was first revealed in 2015 as seven-story, 95-unit version. The most recent six-story iteration was approved by the Chicago Plan Commission exactly one year ago.
