Along with all of the new businesses springing up on Wilson Avenue, there has been lots of retail development occurring as well. It's clear that the new $203M Wilson L that is scheduled to be completed at the end of this year has spurred a lot of what we're seeing now.
Last July, the 46th Ward Zoning & Development Committee voted in favor of a development proposal located at the corner of Broadway & Wilson (4601 N. Broadway). After their vote of acceptance for this development, the City's Dept. of Planning & Development made additional requests for some architectural revisions to have it more in keeping with the other buildings located within this newly created Uptown Square Historical District. In the photo below, the rendering on the left was the original design and the rendering on the right is the one recently approved by the City's Dept. of Planning & Development. The next steps for this project include a presentation before the City's Plan Commission, then the City's Zoning Committee, and finally, full City Council.
The 46th Ward Zoning & Development Committee will view the change of this project design, as well as hear about plans for another transit-oriented development (TOD) at 975 W. Wilson on Monday, Feb. 27 at Weiss Memorial Hospital at 4646 N. Marine Drive. Click here to view those plans.
