New Gardner School to be built on former Buddhist Temple site, Uptown/ Ravenswood

Former Truc Lam Buddhist Temple building in the Ravenswood / Uptown neighborhoods is scheduled for demolition this spring. Anyone on the North Side has probably passed this site at Ashland and Wilson a million times. A new Gardner School early childhood learning facility will be built and really alter the look of the corner. The school/ daycare may be built by right according to RS-3 zoning (we work with clients on these types of deals).

We've mentioned daycare/ early childhood education facilities are HOT! Several new buildings have been built or significantly retrofitted in the 47th Ward recently for schools within a mile or so of this location including a new JYCS and Kiddie Academy.

Here is some background from Uptown Update  .   See full site plan here
