In June 2010, after more than two and a half years of public meetings, design revisions and individual input on the project, the Chicago City Council approved zoning for Addison Park on Clark. The sustainable development consists of retail spaces, 135 rental apartments, a 137-room hotel and just under 400 underground parking spaces. It is located on the south side of the 1000 block of west Addison Street, from Sheffield west to Clark Street, and extends south on Clark Street approximately one and a half blocks.
While the outline of the project has been approved, work on more detailed aspects of the project continues. Determining materials, completing specific internal and external drawings and other planning work is underway. Financial and construction plans are being completed.
Construction will not occur on the project site until the design, construction, planning and financial planning work is completed.
M&R Development would like to thank neighborhood residents, community and business groups and Alderman Tunney for their support and ongoing involvement in the project. Alderman Tunney conducted a very thorough outreach effort and went to great lengths to keep everyone informed and to gather feedback from the neighborhood. This communication has improved the project’s design and has helped build a strong relationship with the community.
The development team also thanks and appreciates the strong support from the neighborhood. The community’s suggestions have helped improve the plan and through this process, we have built strong relationships. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the neighborhood and are excited to be a member of one of the best neighborhood’s in Chicago.
