|The 5 vacant lots stretching from 4608-4630 N. Malden|
Ald. Cappleman just sent out a newsletter clarifying the plans:
"After 3 previous attempts for an upzone on five neighboring empty parcels of property at 4608-30 N. Malden, developer Steve Sgouras made the decision to pursue building on these lots without an upzone. With no upzone, the Affordable Requirements Ordinance will not be enacted, which would have required a 10% set aside for affordable housing. Mr. Sgouras is asking for zoning variances to reduce setbacks in order to provide one-to-one parking for the development. Sheridan Park is an historic designated area, and residents in the past had petitioned to have 30′ setbacks for any development built. However, it’s not clear if this setback is a requirement by the City; the building directly south, which was built after Sheridan Park’s designation, has less of a setback. Ald. Cappleman is seeking clarification from the Dept. of Planning & Development on required setbacks within Sheridan Park.
Residents with questions are encouraged to stop by the 46th Ward Office during open office hours any Monday evening from 5pm – 7pm or send an email to email@example.com."
UU Note: The 0' setback on the north side of the development that had some neighbors up in arms actually refers ONLY to a 10' 3" section of the garage which would abut the neighboring lot line. Also of note is the 22' setback to the front of the building. The 14' setback refers to the distance from the sidewalk to the front of the balconies. Those items are highlighted on the site plan below.
