Detailed Stewart School Conversion Plans Surface With 64 Residential Units

If there is still any doubt that the Broadway and Wilson corridor is going to be unrecognizable in a few years, here is yet another planned development we heard about a few months ago, now in greater detail. Ald. Cappleman has also issued a letter of support to the city to make Stewart School a Chicago landmark.

"Stewart School, 4525 N. Kenmore Ave: The Graeme Stewart Elementary School was sold to Morningside Stewart, LLC, affiliate of the Morningside Group of companies, in January 2016 and is undergoing a redevelopment in which the school will be converted to 64 residential units with internal vehicle and bicycle parking.

Morningside is the builder and developer of the property and is working with Pappageorge Haymes Partners, an architecture firm with an extensive portfolio of historic adaptive reuse.  Morningside Stewart, LLC has applied with the City of Chicago for Landmark status on the school.

The north lot will remain parking with improvements made to the lot. The south lot is not included in this development, and will be a separate planned development including mixed-use retail and residential.  This project is not receiving any TIF subsidies and the school redevelopment will not exceed existing zoning density regulations."
