Four transit-oriented developments are on the agenda for the Zoning Committee, which is set to meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Together, the new buildings would feature 69 units, but just five parking spaces for cars.
- O2018-2324 — A five-unit building would get an additional four units at 314-18 S. Halsted St. in the 27th Ward. The complex would have no parking spaces, since it is close to the Halsted station on the CTA Blue Line.
- O2018-2386 — An 18-unit building would be built at 3500 N. Clark St., not far from Wrigley Field in the 44th Ward. Plans call for a Culver’s to be built on the first floor of the building, which would offer five parking spaces.
- O2018-2298 — A 30-unit building would be built at 1730 N. Greenleaf Ave. in the 49th Ward. Plans call for two stories to be added to what is now the two-story Ethiopian Community Center and the facade restored. The complex would have no parking spaces since it is close to the Rogers Park Metra station.
- O2018-2326 — A 12-unit building would be built at 1812-14 W. Division St. in the 1st Ward. The complex would have no parking spaces — but enough parking for 12 bicycles — since it is close to the Division station on the CTA Blue Line.
Aldermen will also consider:
- O2018-2516 — A 62-unit senior housing complex at 4801-59 S. Cicero Ave. in the 14th Ward.
- O2018-2329 — A new two-story field service center for People’s Gas at 4227 W. 35th St. with 417 parking spaces in the 22nd Ward.
- O2018-2298 — A new four-story, 39-unit building with 35 parking spaces and shops on the ground floor to replace a service station at 4757 N. Ashland Ave. in the 47th Ward.
- O2018-3182 — Landmark designation for West Pullman Elementary School, which was shuttered in 2013. The massive structure is set to become affordable apartments for seniors, and the designation will allow those working to redevelop the massive property at 1917-11951 S. Parnell Ave. to qualify for tax credits.
- O2018-2339 — Legislation that would add two alternate members to the Zoning Board of Appeals and allow them to vote on items if a regular member of the five-member board is not present. All members of the board are appointed by the mayor, and have expertise in the building trades or real estate. Department of Planning and Development spokesman Peter Strazzabosco said the alternate members are needed to prevent items from being deferred when only three board members are present. The alternates would be named by the mayor and approved by City Council for four-year terms, Strazzabosco said.
