"Along with all of the new businesses springing up on Wilson Avenue, there has been lots of retail development occurring as well. It's clear that the new $203M Wilson L that is scheduled to be completed at the end of this year has spurred a lot of what we're seeing now.
Last July, the 46th Ward Zoning & Development Committee voted in favor of a development proposal located at the corner of Broadway & Wilson (4601 N. Broadway). After their vote of acceptance for this development, the City's Dept. of Planning & Development made additional requests for some architectural revisions to have it more in keeping with the other buildings located within this newly created Uptown Square Historical District. In the photo [above], the rendering on the left was the original design and the rendering on the right is the one recently approved by the City's Dept. of Planning & Development. The next steps for this project include a presentation before the City's Plan Commission, then the City's Zoning Committee, and finally, full City Council."
