The gas station is long gone, and the glazing is almost complete on 3901 North Broadway, the residential block going up on the northeast corner of Sheridan and Broadway.
We spent many a windy winter’s afternoon standing on that corner waiting for the #80 Irving Park bus to provide us with shelter, safety, and transportation. It would have been nice to have this nine-story building there to hide from the elements.
In the photograph above from Lake View Spy Joel, you can see that the building topped out long ago, and the windows are almost fully in place. But what about that part that’s all green insulation board? No glass there. As we reported back in April of 2016, that’s all going to be faced in brick.
When complete, the building will have one hundred apartments, and a little over 1,500 square feet of retail space.
