Chicago Cityscape #DenyThePermitIs a 3-flat for a vacant lot next to the Bloomingdale Trail/606 too much, or something? (I think that the "predominance of the block" minimum density rule doesn't apply to this project because the majority of this side of the street is non-residential.) 0
Chicago Cityscape #DenyThePermit@BuildingChi Great minds think alike. I took this photo 1.5 years ago 0
Chicago Cityscape #DenyThePermit@ArchiJake yep, the coworking space is mentioned in the permit as "commercial space". I believe the parking lot is only for users of the building. It was/will be under separate permit. 0

Chicago Cityscape #DenyThePermitThat might be this permit, at 3051 W 48th Place, for "a new 1-story recyclable material transfer station". 0
Chicago Cityscape #DenyThePermitThis is really, really good for Evanston and should probably be duplicated in the older cities in Cook County. What’s kinda funny about it is that most of these lots that were unbuildable before the rule change would be buildable if they were under Chicago’s zoning rules. 0
