|Proposed 7 story development by FLATS at 1050 W. Wilson (currently a parking lot)|
FLATS hopes to develop a parking lot next to its property at 1050 W. Wilson into a 7 story transit oriented development with 102 units and retail. Because of its proximity to the Wilson L and being a TOD, they are proposing 21 parking spaces. Full details on this proposal can be found on Alderman Cappleman's website. Truman Square Neighbors block club will meet Monday, July 20th, to hear more about it and will vote on whether to give its approval to a zoning change the same week.
Just a block away on the SE corner of Sheridan and Wilson, a lot that was most recently El Pollo Loco and owned by Cedar Street/FLATS is now slated for another 7 story development. Plans call for 138 units and 52 parking spaces. The project will first be presented to Clarendon Park Neighbors and then to the Z&D committee where a zoning change would be requested. Complete plans can be found on Ald. Cappleman's site.
Both projects would add some density to Wilson by adding residential that was lost in the 1960s and 1970s.
