Current vacant lot at 835 W. Wilson (Google)
This morning, we woke to good news regarding a long vacant Uptown lot.
Ald. Cappleman shared a proposal last night on his development page that hopes to fill the empty lot at 835 W. Wilson with affordable housing for seniors.
Brinshore Development, the developer working with Sarah's Circle and Ald. Cappleman on the $17,500,000 affordable housing/women's shelter now under construction at Sheridan & Leland, plans a 6 story building with a total of 73 rental units designated for seniors over 62. The building is being designed by Landon Bone Baker Architects, a firm that specializes in affordable developments.
Brinshore is seeking a zoning change for the project and proposes no ground-level retail along Wilson. The building has a total of 44 parking spaces, with a new curb cut off of Wilson Avenue.
Clarendon Park Neighbors Association will review the proposal and share their feedback with Ald. Cappleman and the developer.
Total cost of the project is $26,000,000.
According to the developer application, Brinshore is hoping to receive funding from the Illinois Housing and Development Authority in the form of tax credits and Housing Trust Fund funds.
