DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
3460 N. Broadway Development


 
A community meeting was held by Alderman Tunney and the developers on July 11 th at the 19 th District Police Department to discuss the planned development of an 8-story mixed use building featuring 246 apartments, ranging from efficiencies to 3 bedrooms. 
The first floor will have approximately 8,800 square feet of commercial space and may be divided based on the use of the space.  There will be three 15 minute loading zones on Broadway and the existing curb cuts will be eliminated, adding three more cars for parking.
 
The percentage breakdowns are as follows:
 
20% efficiencies (583 sq. ft)-49 units
33% 1 bedrooms (700sq. ft)-85 units
40% 2 bedrooms (1200 sq. ft)-97 units
15% 3 bedrooms (1400 sq. ft)-15 units
 
The structure is recessed to allow for open space both on Broadway and Corneilia.  A 1900 sq. ft. pocket park or open space will be landscaped on Corneilia.  The development includes a pool, spa, green roof terrace and a dog park area.  No pricing has been set for the lease of these units.
 
The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce supports this development with ongoing conversations with the development team, Optima. 
 
About Optima
Designed by Optima's founder, international award-winning architect, David C. Hovey, FAIA, the building features a series of setbacks creating sculptural relief along Broadway with an undulating façade. The setbacks provide for landscaped retail spaces that promote sidewalk cafes and outdoor eating areas encouraged by the City along streets like Broadway. An elegant and sophisticated palette with warm-toned colors consisting of transparent light bronze glass and an opaque black-brown window wall has been selected to complement the surrounding neighborhood. The building also features a distinctive landscaped interior atrium that runs through the center of the entire building and is enclosed by a fixed in-place skylight at the roof to bring natural light into the interior of the building.  You can learn more about the development here .
The Lakeview East area is bustling with new development.  For development projects visit our website  here.
