car repair shop at the corner of Lawrence and Ashland in Uptown has been emptied out and new construction draws near. Property records show a Trustee Deed (sale price) of $2,350,000 recorded in December 2018 for the 115’ x 156’ = 17,940 sq/ft lot. The zoning change was approved in June of 2018 according to the 47th Ward website. Check out the drawings HERE. A building construction permit was issued in December estimated over $5 million.
The property is close to the Ravenswood Metra, Crafty Beaver (across the street!), Lawrence Red Line, Mariano's. Jewel, Andersonville fun, Chase Park (pool next door!) and any number of bars, restaurants and shops. Details from the summary sheet of the residential apartment development include:
