Chicago developer Platinum Homes scored a construction permit to break ground on a six-story infill condominium development at 3010 W. Montrose Avenue. The Albany Park project replaces a single-story commercial building that previously housed the Leonard Adler & Co. garment construction supply wholesaler.
Designed by Chicago-based architecture firm 360 Design Studio, the upcoming project has a brick facade and a private rooftop deck, according to the permit. The building includes two "duplex down" residences on the first floor and lower level containing four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms each. The second and third stories will feature four simplex condos with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The development did not require a change to the site's underlying zoning but did go to the Zoning Board of Appeals earlier this year for a minor variance. The newly permitted structure at 3010 W. Montrose will be joined by a twin condo building (3014 W. Montrose) that also rises three stories and offers six for-sale residences. Platinum Homes plans to build a second 30-condo project at nearby 3030 W. Lawrence Avenue.
