60 Rental Units Proposed For Vacant Lots At Clark & Ainslie

Proposed 6 story development (Axios Architects)
A 6 story building could be coming soon to Ald. Pawar's section of Uptown at 4906-4918 N. Clark.

You might recall that the corner was home to an auto shop that caught fire in 2009 and was destroyed. The lot has sat vacant since.

A developer is proposing 60 rental units for the site with a mix of 4, 3, 2 and 1 bedroom units. A total of 6 affordable units are proposed for on site. Retail on the ground floor along Clark and a total of 62 parking spaces rounds out the proposal.

The rendering is leaving us a bit confused as we are not sure how the two story building on the left, or the 4 story building to the north work into the plan. They are perhaps conceptual.

Questions or concerns? Ald. Pawar's appointed Zoning Advisory Committee will be discussing the proposal on March 30. His office can be reached at

Update: Winona Foster Carmen Winnemac (WFCW) Block Club had a meeting to discuss this proposed development on April 4, 2017. They posted on their Facebook page:  "Thanks to the 40+ neighbors who showed up to WFCW meeting tonight to discuss the proposed 60 unit rental project @ Clark and Ainslie. The overwhelming consensus was the building is too large for the neighborhood. The other concerns addressed were parking and retail space. The next meeting will be sometime in May and we will post updates as they are available."
