Long-Vacant Lots On Sheridan To Be Developed

The last time buildings stood in the long-vacant lots at Sheridan & Agatite was the early 1970s. Nixon was president. Bob Rehak had just started photographing Uptown as it entered a rough period of decline.

That all could change if Quest Realty is granted a zoning change for the parcels at 4420-4444 N. Sheridan. They propose building a 4-story, 33-unit building with retail on the ground floor that would fill the entire lot.

From Ald. Cappleman's website:

"The developer, Quest Realty Group (, is proposing a new development that encompasses three lots, two of which are vacant. Currently, one parcel of the three is zoned B3-3 and two are zoned RT-4. The developer is requesting a change in the zoning for two of the parcels so that all parcels are consistent with a B3-3 zoning designation."

Clarendon Park Neighbors will be reviewing the plans and their suggestions/vote will be passed along to Alderman Cappleman. The total cost of the project is under the threshold required to go before the 46th Ward Zoning and Development Committee. 

We are sure that neighbors around this lot will be ecstatic to see this lot developed. Especially those directly to the south and across the street!
