1 – Ballad of an Old Man Back in my twenties I used to walk through the same park every day after work. On an old wooden bench under an even older willow sat an old man. There, he always looked so happy, so joyful. Beyond his fragile frame and crooked back, there were these […]

Get more in-depth, daily coverage of Chicago politics at The Daily Line. CITY HALL — As Ald. Proco Joe Moreno (1) prepares to leave office, the City Council’s Zoning Committee will consider nine proposals that could add approximately 100 apartment and condominium units to his rapidly gentrifying soon-to-be-former North Side ward. Ald.-elect Daniel La Spata (1) ousted Moreno in February, and will become one of six members of the Democratic Socialists of America to join the City Council next month. The largest development (O2019-1346) set to be considered by the committee at its meeting set to start at 10 a.m. would convert an early 1900s-era Logan Square building that currently houses a substance abuse recovery center into a 35-unit apartment complex targeted at millennials.  Four of the units must be set aside for low- or moderate-income residents under the city’s affordable housing rules. Originally, the plan called for 44 units, as reported by Block Club Chicago, but that ran into opposition from nearby residents concerned that would clog already snarled streets with more traffic and make it more difficult to find a parking space. Adult & Teen Challenge, which has operated out of the building for more than 25 years, plans to open a new facility with the proceeds from the sale of the building, Block Club Chicago reported. The proposal would change the property’s zoning designation from RT4, residential two-flat, townhouse and multi-unit district, to RM5, a residential multi-unit district. The committee is also set to weigh a proposal (O2019-1347) to build a 32-unit transit-oriented development at 1838-44 N. Western Ave. The new six-story building would replace the former Jensen Plating Works along the Bucktown-Logan Square border, where city officials approved plans for a nine-unit building in 2017 that never materialized. Shops and stores would occupy the first floor of the building near the 606 Trail, and the building would have 32 bicycle spaces and five parking spaces, according to the proposal. Aldermen will also weigh a four-story, 20-unit development (O2019-1355) with 20 parking spaces at 1815-21 N. California Ave. The committee will also weigh Moreno’s request (O2019-1377) to convert his own Wicker Park single-family home to a two-flat. The outgoing alderman converted the building from a two-flat to a single-family home when he got married, Moreno’s chief of staff Raymond Valadez told Block Club Chicago. Moreno will be required to recuse himself from any vote by the committee because he has a financial interest in the matter. Any final action by the full City Council action is scheduled to come after La Spata takes office. Aldermen will also weigh a proposal (O2018-8011) to fill the gaping hole at the heart of the Six Corners Shopping District with a 10-story, 248-unit senior living facility at Irving Park Road, Cicero and Milwaukee avenues. Also set to be considered by the Zoning Committee: O2019-1391 — a request to allow a fitness center to operate at the Medinah Temple at 600 N. Wabash Ave. in the 42nd Ward. Bloomingdale’s now uses the Moorish Revival temple as a furniture showcase but is looking to sell the landmark. O2017-3800 — plans from A Safe Haven to build a five-story building with 90 studio apartments and 28 parking spaces at Roosevelt Road and Richmond Street in the 28th Ward. Veterans working to recover from drug or alcohol addiction will live at the center, which has the support of the Chicago Housing Authority.O2019-1384 — a proposal from People’s Gas to build a 100,000-square foot warehouse on 10.9 acres at 4207-57 W. 35th Place in the 22nd Ward with 130 parking spaces.O2019-328 — plans for a 12-story office tower at Illinois Street and La Salle Drive in River North with shops and stores on the ground floor.O2019-1380 — a proposal to add three stories and 12 apartments to a one-story commercial building at 1530-34 N. Halsted St. in the 2nd Ward. The transit-oriented development would include six parking spaces, according to the proposal.O2019-1359 — a proposal to renovate two vacant buildings near Indiana and Prairie avenues into offices, a music studio and a video editing suite, under the city’s commercial transit-oriented development rules.O2018-8153 — a proposal to build a six-story building with nine units at Randolph and May on what is now a vacant parking lot. The transit-oriented development would include zero parking spaces but nine bicycle parking spots, according to the proposal.O2019-1344 — a request to allow a drive thru restaurant to be built as part of the shopping center anchored by Seafood City at 5033 N. Elston Ave. in the 39th Ward.O2018-4980 — A proposal to convert a convenience store at 3579 W. Dickens Ave. in Logan Square into a shelter by dog-rescue group One Tail At A Time. [Block Club Chicago]
