11 Story Development Heads to Wicker Park's Ashland & Division
We realize that people don't see information at exactly the time we publish it. So for important projects like this one, we like to provide updates along the way. The "Pizza Hut" site as it's called at the corner of Division Street and Ashland Avenue (1600 W. Division Street) has been vacant for almost 5 years after a failed attempt by Walgreens to develop the property. Purchased in 2011, however, now the space has big plans. A new development is being planned with the input of the community, the East Village Association and 1st Ward Alderman Moreno.
So...what's in the works?
An 11-story glass/metal building that will rival the The Coyote Building (North/Damen/Milwaukee) for icon status will include 1st floor commercial space, 2nd floor offices and 9 floors of residential rental units (100+ units).
No parking will be provided onsite to residents of this building. An affidavit will be required by tenants which states tenants do not own cars and subsequently will not be eligible for permit/street parking.
PNC Bank and Intelligentsia Coffee already have dibs on the commercial space. The East Village Association has provided an extensive overview of the project.
