The Zoning Board of Appeals has approved variations for a residential development at 3015 N Southport Avenue in Lake View. Located along N. Southport Avenue, the site is an existing surface parking lot placed adjacent to a public alley.
The property is between W Wellington Avenue and W Nelson Street. CA Ventures is the developer behind the project.
Designed by OKW Architects, the new construction will be a five-story residential building. This is the secondary phase of an adjacent reuse project at 3001 N Southport Avenue. The project will hold seven residential dwelling units and 13 parking spaces. Six of the parking spaces will be used for the adjacent property.
