Coming Soon: New Apartments on Broadway

While most of the new development in Uptown has been occurring in the 46th Ward, there is a new apartment building under construction in the 5100 block of North Broadway in the 48th Ward. Formerly medical offices, the previous building at 5137 North Broadway was demolished earlier this year and will be replaced with new construction apartments. Developed by Quest Realty Group, construction will be completed in early 2018 with the first move-ins anticipated in May 2018. According to the building permit, there will be offices on the first floor, and an interior garage for 18 cars.

A total of 36 units are planned with a mix of studio, one, and two bedroom units. Were waiting for additional information on this project from Alderman Harry Osterman's office and/or the developer.


  1. Underwhelming design, but it does represent progress for the neighborhood, I guess. Wish someone would do something with the decrepit, mostly empty building on the southeast corner of Foster/Broadway (Laurie's Pizza).

  2. Yes design is poor, maybe we need to raise the bar slightly,esthetices are just as important.
