The development would replace a one-story City Sports as well as Family Dollar and Rainbow Shops, which were built in the 1970s. It would feature a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom rental units. 11,550 square feet of retail will run along both Wilson and Broadway.
The main lobby entrance is planned for off Wilson, next to the current FLATSstudio 1050 building (Wilson Avenue Theater/former TCF Bank). 41 total interior parking spaces are accessed via Winthrop behind the development and a total of 7,135 square feet of outdoor space, including a rooftop deck, will be available for the residents.
The TOD is designed by Chicago-based MX3 Architects and is planned for 9 stories pending a zoning change approval, first by Truman Square Neighbors and later the 46th Ward Zoning Committee. No TIF funds are being requested for this development. This is still a developing story and once we have more info, including the developer, we will pass it along.
