City Issues Logan Square Dual-Tower Permits

Logan Square dual towers

Exactly one month after issuing foundation permits, the City of Chicago has issued permits to begin erecting the controversial dual-tower project in Logan Square.

ERECT 12 STORY RESIDENTIAL BUILDING ON PREVIOUSLY APPROVED FOUNDATION PERMIT #100606075. THESE PLANS ALSO INCLUDE 100615401 FOR 2210 N. WASHTENAW.

ERECT 11 STORY RESIDENTIAL BUILDING ON PREVIOUSLY APPROVED FOUNDATION PERMIT#100606076. PLANS FOR THIS APPLICATION ARE UNDER 100615357, 2733 W. BELDEN.

Residents of the neighborhood fought hard to have this project quashed, succeeding along the way in reducing heights of both towers, which were originally slated to be 15 and 12 floors, respectively, and now moving forward as 12- and 11-story buildings.

The Wheeler Kearns Architects-designed residential towers had been deemed far too big for the surrounding area by some Logan Square residents, who also pointed to parking challenges along the Milwaukee Avenue corridor. But developer Rob Buono pushed forward, feeling this was the right time and place for a transit-oriented development of this scale. 1st Ward Alderman Proco Joe Moreno ultimately agreed, and signed off on the project, with the Chicago Plan Commission giving its approval back in April.

Location: 2733 West Belden Avenue, Logan Square
