WEST TOWN — After more than 30 years in West Town, MidAmerican Printing has a contact to sell its property at 1716 W. Grand Ave., where a developer hopes to build a four-story, six-unit condo building, a neighborhood leader confirmed Thursday.
The developers, Diamond Properties, presented the plan to the Chicago Grand Neighbors Association Planning and Development Committee, said Andy Perdue, the group’s president.
The new project does not require a zoning change.
Because it does not need their approval, the neighbors association did not take a position to support or oppose the project, Perdue said.
Diamond’s plans include ground-floor housing on Hermitage Avenue and ground-floor retail on Grand Avenue.
Perdue said the project aligns with goals outlined in the 2014 Grand Avenue Workgroup Report, which was created in collaboration between the neighbors association, the 1st Ward and the Industrial Council of Nearwest Chicago.
Founded in 1985, MidAmerican Printing is a family-owned and -operated commercial printing shop. According to the company’s website, it is a $9 million company with more than 40 employees.
MidAmerican could not be reached for comment.
