A new five-story apartment building is ready to begin construction at the northwest corner of Southport and Belmont avenues in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. The transit-oriented development was awarded a $6 million building permit on Thursday for crews to start work at the site of the demolished Flat Top Grill building.

The project from Newport Realty and Johnathan Splitt Architects will contain 24 rental units, about 4,500 square feet of ground floor commercial space, and a fourth-floor resident amenity deck and dog run. Due to its proximity to the Southport CTA station, the proposal will take full advantage of Chicago’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) ordinance and provide garage parking for just seven vehicles plus 24 bikes.

The newly permitted project at 3200 N. Southport Avenue is located across the street from an upcoming four-story condo building slated to replace the drive-through Byline Bank drive-through. Other nearby projects include the Tied House addition to Scubas Tavern at 3159 N. Southport Avenue and a four-story TOD headed to 3334 N. Southport Avenue.
