Uptown Residents Discuss the Future Of Clark Street


4502-10 N. Clark (Department of Planning & Development)

Residents joined a Zoom meeting last night sponsored by the Chicago Department of Planning & Development to discuss the future of Clark Street from Foster to Montrose.

High on the wish-list of most who took the online survey included additional development of retail and residential, wider sidewalks, adaptive reuse of historical buildings, streetscape cohesion, and connected and protected bike paths. 

Of note in the presentation was a rendering of the 4 story building in development at 4504 N. Clark on the NW corner of Clark & Sunnyside. We can assume the one-story building (which was unexpectedly razed) will be recreated to look like what we see in the rendering above. 

Another potential development site listed in the presentation is Somboon Auto Repair, right across the street at 4501 N. Clark. As of now we are unaware of any active plans for the site, but DPD is looking  at ways to replace "empty" surface lots along Clark with additional density.

A second workshop is planned this spring focusing on stakeholders in the community.
