New construction begins on massive Ravenswood lot

Construction has begun on Ravenswood's newest luxury home on its voluminous lot. We wrote about this nifty $1,465,000 vacant land sale at Montrose and Hermitage back in 2010. According to that listing the lot measures 92 feet wide and 165 feet deep. It appears that the new foundation is poured for a single family residence on the north end of the lot furthest from West Montrose... while the remaining space to the south will make up the outdoor living areas (my guess).

It's an interesting project.  If anyone wants to chime in on any public knowledge of the property feel free to email me and I'll update the post. North Hermitage, running from West Irving Park Road to West Lawrence Avenue, is full of interesting, eclectic and luxury homes on various lot sizes (click for some examples).
