New apartment complexes moving forward in Evanston

According to a report at Evanston Now, AMLI Residential has received final approval from a city review panel to build a 214-unit apartment complex on Chicago Ave at Kedzie St. The 6-story project will include 14 2-story live-work units at street level. The plans include wide sidewalks and a 40 x 40 foot plaza at the corner of Chicago and Kedzie.

The project is scheduled to break ground this fall, according to its Web site.

A second development, also covered at Evanston Now, is still working its way through the approval process.

Focus Development is proposing to build a 174-unit apartment building in the 1700 block of Ridge Ave where it had previously planned two condominium buildings. The condos have been stalled by the current downturn in the for-sale market.
