PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT ON OUR BLOCK: DISCUSSION WITH ARCHITECTS, 46th WARD
Hospitality Room Monday, 7pm, July 8th
You’ve seen the scaffolding covering the front of the elegant, vintage threeflat down the block at 3728 N. Lake Shore Drive. Workers were going to tuckpoint and restore its terra cotta façade, but those plans have changed.
Pending proposals call for the current building to be demolished and replaced with a 42-unit residential building. That plan fits the zoning requirements, but developers will need public approval for other elements of their plan.
They are seeking a 20% reduction in the required number of parking spots as well as non-standard setbacks for the north side yard and the front entry gate. They also will have to win the blessing of the Chicago Plan Commission because their project falls within the Chicago Lakefront Protection Private Use Zone. You can review the proposed plans at:
This is your chance to learn details about the project from its architects and developers, who will explain their drawings, and lodge your comments and concerns with 46th Ward Ald. James Cappleman’s chief of staff, who proposed this meeting, and one of the city’s zoning attorneys.
Please note that all non-residents of 3750 must sign in at its Lake Shore Dr. entrance.
