Earlier this summer, proposed plans came out on a new TOD development replacing an abandoned building at 3347-49 N. Southport. The original proposal was not received too well by the community, and the developer came back with a new plan, going from 6 floors down to 5.
From Ald. Tunney’s office:
“Hi Folks, I apologize for the short notice but the proposal for 3347-49 N. Southport will be presented and the West Lake View Neighbors (WLVN) meeting on Monday, November 18th on the second floor of The Butcher’s Tap, 3553 N. Southport Ave. A meet-and-greet begins at 6:30 p.m. before each meeting. I had hoped to have our website updated by today but we’ve hit a snag so I\’m attaching the updated plan set we received. We\’re also in the process of updating the narrative on our website (I hope to have it complete by tomorrow morning).
“The applicant has revised the proposal based on community feedback and is now requesting a zoning change from B3-2 to B3-3 to allow for a five-story mixed-use building. The building would contain 4,230 square feet of ground floor commercial space along with 28 dwelling units, 4 parking spaces and 28 bike parking stalls.” We hope you can join the WLVN meeting next week but we will also take comments, questions and feedback via email.
Sincerely, Bennett R. Lawson
