The construction permit was issued last August. The building takes the place of a one story auto repair shop and continues the positive trend (in my opinion) of "going up". The location is great for density. It's close to diverse retail, services and dining along Lincoln, Damen and Irving Park Road. The Irving Park CTA Brown Line stop is a few blocks away.
I don't know if these will be condo or apartment rentals. Either prospect can be lucrative in this desirable North Center location. There are several three unit condo buildings beign completed within a few blocks of this development on North Damen heading south. New construction keeps on churning on the North Side where many residential units are replacing one-story retail.
