UPTOWN — Two commercial buildings on prominent Uptown streets will be redeveloped into mid-rise buildings with stores and apartments.
The four-story building coming to Clark Street and the five-story structure coming to Sheridan Road continue the development boom for both streets in Uptown. Unlike some other developments, these will not require neighbor input.
The former Uptown fitness building at 4410 N. Clark St. has been demolished to make way for a four-story building.
MCZ Development will build a structure with 25 units on its upper floors and commercial space on the ground floor. A rendering shows at least some units having balconies.
There will be a rooftop deck and a garage with 13 parking spaces, according to the building permit.
A demolition permit for the two-story former gym was issued in September, and the building has already come down. The development team has received a permit to begin foundation work, city records show.
One block north, MCZ Development is working to turn a one-story retail strip at 5411 N. Clark St. into a building with 56 apartments and commercial space. A community meeting with Ald. James Cappleman (46th) on the proposal is set to take place Wednesday night.
The 4410 N. Clark St. development is in the 47th Ward and is being completed under the current zoning, meaning it does not require community or aldermanic oversight, said a spokesperson for Ald. Matt Martin (47th).
A three-story building at 4710 N. Sheridan Road is set to be demolished to make way for a five-story, 24-unit building, city records show.
The building will have ground-floor retail space and a parking garage, city building records show.
It will replace a structure built in 1909, according to a listing for the building.
There are three apartments in the building, plus a storefront that most recently held Siam Cafe, which is now closed. The building was sold last year to two developers for $1.07 million, property records show.
This property is next to a development already underway at 4714 N. Sheridan Road, where a former day care center was demolished to make way for a 30-unit apartment building.
