1050 W. WILSON PROPOSAL GETS GREEN LIGHT
Last Monday, FLATS Chicago provided residents within the Truman Square Neighbors Block Club with a presentation of their proposed development at 1050 W. Wilson. Residents had the opportunity to ask questions and get a better sense of the plans and the developer's timeline for accomplishing this project. Truman Square Neighbors collected in-person and online ballots for residents to vote on this proposal up until Wednesday at midnight. Over 90% of participating residents living within the boundary lines of the Truman Square Block Club area voted in favor of this 7-story project. The project will include the renovation of the former TCF Bank building and a new building that will be constructed on the current parking lot. Since this project has an estimated cost of less than $10M, the 46th Ward Zoning & Development Committee will not be reviewing for a vote. For more information about this or other developments in the 46th Ward, please click here.
ZONING & DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE MEETING CANCELED
This committee will not meet in July because no zoning proposals are waiting for approval. A mid-August meeting is anticipated to discuss proposed projects.
