A full building permit has been issued for a residential development at 3449 N. Ashland. Located at the southeast corner of N. Ashland Ave and W. Cornelia Ave, the rectangular site will house the third new building along this stretch of N. Ashland Ave. All developed by Contemporary Concepts Inc, the largest site was once home to the Loyola Press before it was demolished to make way for new buildings.

Designed by Studio Dwell Architects, this final structure will rise four stories high and have 53 apartments. Like the other buildings, the ground floor has no shops. Instead, the ground floor will include four apartments, storage space for tenants, bicycle storage and 7 indoor parking spaces. 20 additional parking spaces will be available outside along the lane.

Distinguished from other new structures, the project design consists of a series of intersecting volumes with matching cantilevers and balconies. Some units will have access to balconies facing the street, while units facing the alley will have hanging balconies.

With the permits issued for the building, work can begin on the last piece of this development. A full building permit for 3431 N. Ashland was issued just Last week, starting the construction of both buildings at the same time to complete the development. Contemporary Concepts Inc will also serve as general contractor. A completion schedule is currently unknown.
