|Looking NW at Wilson & Kenmore, currently a parking lot (Cedar Street)|
A project first proposed and approved back in 2016 is undergoing some big design changes.
You might recall that Cedar Street had proposed building an 8 story building in the parking lot next to the former Wilson Avenue Theatre at 1050 W. Wilson. The project has been reworked and we now know what is planned.
Cedar Street now plans a 5 story building, setback from the top floor (down from 8 stories) with 62 units (down from 110). The exterior looks more modern than what was previously planned, with metal panels featuring alternating geometric designs.
The proposal has been given approval by the Department of Planning & Development but will go before the Chicago Plan Commission on December 17. There is still hope for Double Door as the historic building next door will be permitted for a theater use as part of the planned development.
