Developer Mangan Builders has proposed a new residential development at 3731 N. Sheffield. Located just north of Wrigley Field, the site is midblock between W. Waveland Ave and W. Grace St.
With Jonathan Splitt Architects on board, the development will renovate an existing three-story home while building a four-story addition next to and on top of it. Set to hold 8 residential dwellings the unit mix will consist of 3 two-beds, 3 three-beds, and two duplex four-bedrooms.
Rising 49 feet tall, the building is designed with the four-story addition sitting to the north of the existing structure, rising above and on top of it. The new portion will be in contrast with the existing home, clad in dark brick and metal paneling. The existing bay windows will be opened up and turned into balconies, giving every unit access to a balcony.
Residents of the project will have access to four exterior car parking spaces and two interior parking spaces accessed from the alley. A bike room will be included in the basement.
To allow for the project to move forward, the developer is requesting a rezoning from the current RT-4 to RM-5. Approvals will be needed from the Committee on Zoning and full City Council.
