A full building permit has been issued for a new residential development at 3817 N. Ashland. Facing N. Ashland Ave, the project site is bounded by two lanes. Developer Mavrek Development will demolish an existing one-story restaurant building to make way for the new building.
With a design by 360 Design Studio, the new construction will consist of a five-story, all-residential building. The masonry-clad building will contain 48 units, including 31 one-bed, 13 two-bed and 4 three-bedroom units. Rising to 65 feet, the stone and masonry building will reserve 10 of these apartments as affordable, double the required five units.
Parking for 22 cars will be located on the ground floor, accessible from the alley. Charging stations for electric vehicles have been considered by the promoter and bicycle storage will be included for 40 bicycles. Pickup and drop off will be located at the residential entrance along N. Ashland Ave.
The site was rezoned from B3-2 to B2-3 in May 2021, with variances approved by the Zoning Appeal Board in August 2021. With demolition permits issued in January and a full building permit in hand, the general contractor 4 Corners Construction can move ahead with the construction of the project. An official construction schedule has not been announced.
