Building permits have just been issued for a long-empty lot at Clark and Ainslie, a year and a half after the local block club approved the plan, and nearly a decade after the auto repair shop on the lot burned to the ground.
A one-story building that once housed a now-closed auto body shop immediately north of the empty lot will be demolished for the project.
The new development will be a four-story residential rental mixed-use development, with retail on the ground floor. There will be 54 apartments (five designated as affordable under the city's Affordable Requirements Ordinance), in a combination of studios, 1-bedrooms and 2-bedrooms. It will have 29 parking spaces and 27 bike parking spaces, two elevators, and a rooftop deck.
Construction is expected to take a year.
