|The Gardner School proposal for Truc Lam site, north elevation. (NORR)|
See the entire presentation with renderings for tonight HERE.
The order of Buddhist monks who owned the Truc Lam Temple at Wilson and Ashland has completed a sale of the property.
A previous sale that was contingent on a zoning change fell through when the zoning change was denied. It would have put a 12-unit courtyard-style brick residential building on the lot, consisting of two- and three-bedroom condos.
The new owners of the property will build a preschool/daycare building on the site, consisting of a two-story 14-classroom facility. The new owners will ask Ald. Pawar for an expansion of a loading zone on Wilson for pickup and dropoff of students.
There will be a community meeting about the new school on Thursday, February 28th, 6:30pm-7:30pm, at My Buddy's, 4416 N Clark
