The Chicago City Council has approved a residential development at 1040 W. Waveland. Located in Wrigleyville, the building will rise directly behind Wrigley Field within the many buildings that hold the famous Wrigley Rooftops. Developed by Glascott Associates, the existing building will be demolished to make way for the new project.
Designed by SPACE Architects + Planners, the site will become home to a new five-story, all-residential building. Set to rise 51 feet tall, this building will have no new Wrigley Rooftops. Containing 9 units, all will have three bedrooms except for the top floor penthouse which will have four bedrooms. Residents will have access to five car parking spaces off the alley and nine bike parking spaces.
With approval from City Council, the site has been rezoned from RT-4 to B2-3 to allow for the scope and size of the new development. Permits have been filed for the new construction but have yet to be issued. A timeline for construction is currently unknown.
