FLATS Plans Reuse Of Firehouse On Gunnison

FLATS Chicago's plans for the exterior of 1217-19 W. Gunnison
Good news on the development front from North Uptown Neighbors Association:
"The FLATS company is proposing a zoning change to redevelop an existing structure within NUNA boundaries.

This is the red brick, two-story, currently vacant firehouse building at 1217-19 West Gunnison, on the west side of the alley. The current zoning designation is RS-3, or single unit. FLATS wants to change the zoning to RM 4.5 (multi-unit) and redevelop the property to a 4-residence structure."
View the complete plans for the "Firehouse Lofts" project here. The developer will also be presenting his plans at Ald. Cappleman's office on Wednesday at 6:30PM to NUNA.

How the firehouse currently looks, via Google.


  1. That's awesome news, but I didn't even know that building was for sale.

  2. That looks like it would make for an awesome neighborhood bar.
