It’s true. We’ve seen it with our own eyes. A new residential tower from Wirtz Realty Corporation is going up at 2950 North Sheridan Road in Lake View. That much we know for sure.
What don’t we know? The number of stories. A building permit issued by the City of Chicago January 28 states “new construction of a 18-story residential tower.” The announcement from Alderman Tom Tunney’s (44th Ward) office tells us to expect a 19-story development. And the website of design architect Booth Hansen calls this a “20-story glass tower.”
What everyone seems to agree on is that 2950 North Sheridan will be an 82-unit apartment building, with 113 parking spaces included on levels 1 through 4. Again citing the Booth Hansen website, amenities will be built into three separate floors, and will include fitness center, dog run, communal kitchen, and outdoor seating and landscaped terraces. Power Construction is handling the general contractor duties, and are expecting to have the tower ready for the moving vans in 2017.
