Plans to transform an Uptown elementary school into apartments, an application to add three more floors to the Nobu Hotel currently being constructed in Fulton Market, and a new residential community for the city’s Glenwood/Dunn neighborhood are on the deferred agenda for today’s Zoning Committee meeting.
All three projects received unanimous approval from the city’s Plan Commission at their September meeting and now need approval from the Council’s Zoning Committee before the projects can advance to the full City Council for a vote.
It should be a fairly short meeting. There are only 10 zoning applications scheduled, and all had been previously deferred.
The committee is also scheduled to consider three appointments to two major land-use bodies. Mayor Rahm Emanuel is requesting the Council reappoint Blake Sercye as chairman of the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals. His term would expire July 1, 2021.
