Clark Street Construction Boom Continues With Rehab/Addition At 4547

Vintage building at 4547 N Clark which will receive a rehab and rear addition

There's a lot to keep up with on Clark Street.

We told you recently about a proposal to replace a one-story retail building with a five-story residential with retail building at 4511-23 N Clark

We've posted about a developer's plan (currently underway) to build a two-story retail/office building with a 4,200sf parking lot in the rear at 4537 N Clark. This comes after the neighboring block club rejected three separate proposals for residential developments at the site. The current plans for 4537 conform to current zoning and require no input from a block club or alderman.

Today, we spotted permits to rehab the vintage building at 4547 N Clark, just north of where the two- story retail/office building will rise.

According to the permit, a two-story addition will be constructed at the rear of the building with two three-bedroom units (if the abbreviations mean what we think they do). The existing three residential units will be rehabbed, as well as the street-level retail. No parking is mentioned, and no zoning change was requested, so neighborhood input will not be solicited.

It's also worth mentioning that the two vintage buildings at 4645 and 4647 N Clark (below) are now demolished and awaiting whatever comes next. No zoning change has been requested, so we expect that the owner will build to the current specifications.

Once we know what to look forward to, we will pass it along!
