The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning for 2821 N. Orchard. Located just north of W. Diversey Pkwy, the project site is currently occupied by a vacant single-family home that will be demolished. The Estate of Kathy A. Poczatek is the applicant looking to develop the property.
With Hanna Architects on board for the design, the building will stand five floors high. Rising 60 feet, the building will include five three-bedroom homes and five parking spaces in the basement. Each home will have a balcony facing the street and one at the back of their unit. The front facade has been designed as a combination of dark ironspot brick and aluminum paneling with black window frames, glass railings, and a frosted glass garage door.
With the approval of City Council, the site has been rezoned from RM-5 to B2-3 to allow for the scope of the development. Permits for the new construction have been filed and are awaiting issuance. A timeline on construction is currently unknown.
