The applicant is proposing a 7.5 story mixed used building that is designed in consideration of the city’s Transit Oriented Development ordinance.
The building will include:
- 140 rental units,
- 20 parking spaces
- approximately 10,000 sf of ground floor commercial space
Ground floor commercial space is designed to enliven both the Clark and School Street frontages. The residential entrance will be off of School Street and all loading and parking ingress/egress will be accessed off of the alley. The modernist design will feature solid masonry (brick) on all elevations.
The development team has agreed to secure 20 additional parking spaces within two blocks of the development and utilize the space under the CTA and adjacent to the property when it becomes available. Additionally, the alley to the west of the project, that abuts the property, will be upgraded in concrete as opposed to asphalt.
