A full building permit has been issued for a mixed-use development at 5035 N. Sheridan. Also known by the address of 952 W. Carmen, the project site is located at the northeast corner of N. Sheridan Rd and W. Carmen Ave. A demolition permit has already been issued for the existing one-story retail building that currently occupies the site.
Planned by DLG Management, the new construction will yield an eight-story mixed-use building. With retail space and 39 parking spaces on the ground floor, the upper seven floors will be home to 77 new residential units. Residents will also have access to 77 bike parking spaces.
Designed by Jonathan Splitt Architects, the building will be clad in brick masonry with stone detailing. Rising 84 feet tall, the massing steps out over the W. Carmen Ave sidewalk and lines each facade with hanging metal balconies.
While not pursuing a LEED or Green Globes certification, the building will have very minimal energy use thanks to a geothermal system set to be installed under the structure.
Due to the proximity to the lakefront, the development needed the Chicago Plan Commission to approve the Lakefront Protection Ordinance application. With the full building permit issued, developer DLG Management, who is also serving as the general contractor, can begin construction on the new building.
