UPTOWN — Another residential project could be coming to a changing part of Uptown after a proposal to turn a Clark Street building into apartments received a key committee’s support Tuesday.
Honore Properties’ plan to turn the building at 4533 N. Clark St. into an apartment and retail complex was approved Tuesday by the city’s Zoning Committee. The project will be considered by City Council on Wednesday.
The developer’s plan calls for creating 24 apartments in the building, with more than 3,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor, zoning attorney Tyler Manic said at the zoning committee meeting. No parking spaces are included in the project.
The apartments would fill a three-story brick building constructed in 1906 and renovated in 2013, according to the building’s property listing. The commercial building was listed at $1.5 million as a possible residential conversion.
Ald. James Cappleman (46th) said the building recently has been vacant and the project is a positive reuse of an existing building.
“It will provide much more housing that is desperately needed in the ward,” he said at the zoning committee.
The residential/retail building would be part of a changing area of Clark Street in Uptown.
At 4511 N. Clark St., MCZ Development plans to build a five-story apartment building with 56 units and ground-floor retail. The building would replace a single-story retail strip.
A retail and office development is coming to 4537 N. Clark St. and, one block south, MCZ is turning a former gym into a four-story apartment building at 4410 N. Clark St. The retail building at 4509 N. Clark St. has also been listed for sale and touted as a possible apartment redevelopment opportunity.
