A residential development has been proposed at 1815 N. California. Planned by developers Stanislaw Chodak and Wes Khan, the vacant property is midblock along N. California Ave near the popular 606 bike and running trail.
Designed by Hanna Architects, the new five-story building would hold 24 apartments with 24 car parking spaces provided in the building. The unit mix will consist of three one-bed units all on the ground floor facing the street, with 19 two-beds and 2 three-beds on the upper floors.
Set to rise 55 feet, the building has been designed with a two-tone brick facade that frames the windows and balconies of each unit. The fifth floor has been setback from the property line significantly to reduce its visual while providing large rooftop decks for the three units on the fifth floor. All units will have private balconies.
Seeking a zoning change for the site, the developers are currently seeking approval from the local alderman before proceeding through the review process at City Hall. To meet affordability requirements, five apartments would be reserved as affordable.
