Union Park, once known for music festivals and immigration marches, is getting yet another tall neighbor. West suburban Naperville developer Marquette wants to put up a residential high rise right across the street.
The proposal is for a 210-unit apartment building at 140 North Ashland Avenue, on the west side of Union Park, immediately south of the CTA’s Ashland Station, serving the Green and Pink L lines. Marquette is also putting up two buildings on the east side of Union Park, at 1400 and 1454 West Randolph Street.
The new project will replace a three-story building currently on the site. It will, however, preserve and extend the existing six-story building immediately to the south on the northwest corner of Ashland and Maypole Avenues.
Although paperwork filed with the city by the developer lists March 18 for a Plan Commission hearing, it is not currently on the agenda for that meeting.
