IRVING PARK — A developer will pitch plans to build 40 affordable apartments at the Ruby Dry Cleaners site in Irving Park this month.

Developer MVAH Partners aims to build a four-story building with 46 apartments and 29 parking spaces. Forty of the apartments would be designated affordable and the remaining six units would be market rate. The developer will meet with neighbors at 7 p.m. Dec. 16 at Horner Park Fieldhouse, 2741 W. Montrose Ave.

The developer will likely seek a zoning change.

The developer “is not in the zoning-change process yet. But they did apply for an affordable-housing tax credit from the city,” said Carson Poole, a community organizer at North River Commission.

The property is listed for sale for $2.999 million. The developer could not immediately be reached Wednesday.

Ald. Rossana Rodriguez (33rd) is expected to attend the meeting to gather feedback, her chief of staff Kristen Rokke said. The Ravenswood Manor Improvement Association and North River Commission will host the meeting.
