Construction permit issued for 59 new residential units in Lincoln Square

The industrial building at 2150 West Lawrence has been sold and vacant for two years.
The long awaited 59 unit residential project at the corner of West Lawrence and North Leavitt in Lincoln Square draws closer.  A construction permit was issued for a two story addition yesterday.  The proposal for the new development was made over two years ago.  An additional new building is to be built in the parking lot next door.  More info here on the Lawrence development boom.

I took this the day the sign went up.  The very successful Roots Pizza, to me, is a symbol of the rejuvenated Lawrence Avenue as a residential and business destination.
The building is close to transit (Western Brown Line stop and Lawrence bus) and all the restaurants, bars and retail of Lincoln Square. The 2150 West Lawrence development is just across Leavitt from Roots Pizza.  I imagine the Roots people will welcome the new regulars. With all the new residential units built and online to be built business is also booming along Lawrence.
