RAVENSWOOD — Culver’s will soon be expanding its Chicago footprint with a new location on the North Side.
The Culver’s will be on the first floor of the building at 1819 W. Montrose Ave., just steps away from a CTA Brown Line stop.
Anyone walking by the address on Friday could see a sign saying the restaurant would be opening soon.
Plans are still very preliminary and no construction timeline has been set for the new location yet said Paul Pitas, a spokesperson for Culver’s.
Culver’s is a Wisconsin-based chain known for its cheese curds, frozen custard and butter burgers. This will be the restaurant’s third Chicago location.
The city initially approved permits for the first floor space at the end of last year.
In addition to the new restaurant, the building at the corner of West Montrose Avenue and North Honore Street will also feature luxury housing.
Dubbed The Henry, the second floor of the property features housing by FLATS Chicago, a part of developer Cedar Street. FLATS, which owns a swath of properties in nearby Uptown, specializes micro apartments, which are typically 350 square feet or smaller.
The developer previously converted the historic Agudas Achim North Shore Synagogue — a Romanesque Revival, Art Deco and Spanish influenced building originally constructed in 1922 — into high end residential units at part of a development called The Synagogue.
The Henry is renting three one-bedroom apartments that cost between $1,950 and $2,495 per month. It also offers three two-bedroom units that cost between $3,175 and $3,225.
The developer was not immediately available for comment.
