Two Cedar Street Developments Given Green Light By Chicago Plan Commission

Two 5-story developments by Cedar Street Co. were given the green light by the Chicago Plan Commission today and will now go before city council. Both projects will transform parking lots that have not been used as residential or commercial in many years.

4600 N. Kenmore, looking north from Wilson (Level Architecture)

First up, a 5 story 62 unit development at 4600 N. Kenmore will fill a parking lot next to the Wilson Avenue Theatre (slated for Double Door). It will feature ground floor retail and a roof top deck. Six affordable units will be included on-site. Today's meeting also allows for a theatre use for the former bank building next door, which would be needed for a musical venue to operate. Complete plans are available here.

5051 N. Broadway (Booth Hansen)

The next proposal gaining approval is a large 5 story development that will convert a parking lot at Broadway and Winona into two apartment buildings connected by a walkway bridge. You might recall that this is phase 2 of a project that began with the conversion of 5050 N. Broadway (The Draper). 
Full plans can be viewed here.

Cedar Street is extremely busy in Uptown

In addition to the two projects gaining approval today,  4750 N. Winthrop (The Winnie) is nearing completion, a project at Broadway and Foster (The June) is complete, and the conversion of the Bridgeview Bank Building at Lawrence and Broadway to residential and co-working space is underway.
