3542 N. Southport Proposed New Transit-Oriented Development Appears

We said goodbye to Basics Salon earlier this year, and a proposed new transit-oriented development (TOD) has now appeared on Ald. Tom Tunney’s website for 3542 N. Southport Avenue.

From the developer:
“The subject property is located at 3542 N. Southport. The subject lot measures 25 ft. by 120 ft., and is currently zoned B3-2. The owner, Jack Duncan of CA Ventures, is proposing to rezone the property to B3-3 in order to permit a four-story mixed-use building with a retail unit at grade and three (3) residential units above. The proposed mixed-use building will measure 47 ft.-3 inches in height. It will offer an accessible rooftop deck. The subject property is located within 1,320 feet of the CTA Southport Brown Line Station and qualifies as a Transit Oriented Development. As such, two (2) garage parking spaces will be located at the rear of the lot.”

3300 N. Clark St. Transit Oriented Development (TOD) under construction

We reported this several months ago, and construction is now underway at 3300 N. Clark.

“The applicant is proposing a 7.5 story mixed used building that is designed in consideration of the city\’s Transit Oriented Development ordinance.

The building will include 140 rental units, 20 parking spaces and approximately 10,000 sf of ground floor commercial space which is designed to enliven both the Clark and School Street frontages. The residential entrance will be off of School Street and all loading and parking ingress/egress will be accessed off of the alley. The modernist design will feature solid masonry (brick) on all elevations.

The development team has agreed to secure 20 additional parking spaces within two blocks of the development and utilize the space under the CTA and adjacent to the property when it becomes available.  Additionally, the alley to the west of the project, that abuts the property, will be upgraded in concrete as opposed to asphalt.”

Additional information can be found on Tom Tunney’s Website.
