The Chicago City Council has approved a residential development at 1342 W. Ohio. Planned by West Town Gamma Sub LLC, the property is a vacant infill site across the street from Rauner College Prep.
Designed by BLDG Projects Architecture & Design, the new building will stand three stories tall, rising 45 feet. Clad in brick with metal accents, the interior will include six residential units. Two of the units will be three-bedroom duplex units occupying the basement and ground floor. The upper two floors will host four two-bedroom units.
Residents will have access to three parking spaces at the back of the property rented on a first-come, first-serve basis and a rooftop deck will be shared by the entire building.
With approval from the City Council, the property will be rezoned from RS-3 to B2-3, allowing for the scope of the redevelopment. Permits for the construction have yet to be filed and a timeline for construction is currently unknown.
