Over the last month we've heard plans for two transit-oriented developments of mixed-use buildings within 1.5 miles of each other on Chicago's North Side.
At 3400 N. Lincoln, adjacent to the Paulina Brown Line stop, Centrum Partners wants to build a five-to-seven story "upscale"
renal retail building with between 32 and 48 one- and two-bedroom apartments.
According to a story on DNAinfo Chicago, "The $10 million-$15 million project would also have sustainability features such as green roof and a recharging station for electric cars. About 6,000 square feet of retail space has not been marketed to renters yet, though it could potentially be home to a fast-casual restaurant or coffee-type shop."
It's a little too early to tell whether the development will fly with the surrounding community or local 47th Ward Alderman Ameya Pawar.
Meanwhile, just a little bit north and east, Loukas Development wants to construct an eight-story building near the Sheridan Red Line station, according to Uptown Update. A meeting about the development is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at the Weiss Hospital Auditorium.
Loukas would raze a century-old apartment building at the northwest corner of Sheridan and Dakin.
