Demolition permits have been issued to make way for the new residential development at 3817 N. Ashland Ave. Fronting N. Ashland Ave, the project site is bound by two alleyways. An existing one-story restaurant building on site is set to be demolished. Mavrek Development is the developer behind the plan.
With a design from 360 Design Studio, the new construction will consist of a five-story entirety residential building. The masonry clad building will hold 48 units, including 31 one-beds, 13 two-beds, and 4 three-bedroom configurations. Rising 65 feet, the stone and masonry building will set aside 10 of those apartments as affordable, double the five required units.
Parking for 22 cars will be located on the ground floor, accessed from the alley. EV charging stations have been considered by the developer and bike storage will be included with more than one spot per unit. Pick up and drop off will be located at the residential entry along N. Ashland Ave.
The site was rezoned from B3-2 to B2-3 in May 2021, with variances approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals in August 2021. With demolition permits in hand, the project can begin with clearing the site. A permit for the new construction has been filed and is awaiting issuance. An official construction timeline has not been announced.
