Other Development News:
4642 N Magnolia Proposal: Zoning change denied. Magnolia-Malden neighbors met twice to discuss and vote on an up-zone for this property. The first meeting was held on November 25 at Truman College, which resulted in a tie vote. The second meeting was held on Monday, December 16 at the 46th Ward Office, which resulted in a unanimous vote against the up-zone. Therefore, Alderman Cappleman is not supportive of this zoning change.
Preston Bradley Center:
Representatives from Truman Square, Gunnison and Lakeside Neighbors met April 8 at the Preston Bradley to discuss a zoning change from R to B33. This zoning change will allow the building to get a Performing Arts Venue (PAV) license to expand it’s theater programming. This will also allow for other potential future commercial uses of the building spaces. Other existing functions of the building will not be affected. The building currently has a Special Use approval for a shelter, which will remain in place. The church function of the building will continue as a “legal nonconforming” use.
This proposal was endorsed by the groups in attendance with the stipulation that the Preston Bradley Center create a Good Neighbor Agreement with the block clubs.
Sarah’s Circle: Special Use endorsed by the Truman Square Neighbors. Will be considered by the Zoning Board of Appeals on April 19th, 2013 at 2:00pm with support from Ald. Cappleman. This will allow Sarah’s Circle, currently operating their overnight program at the Uptown Baptist Church and their day program at 4750 N. Sheridan to renovate space at 4750 N. Sheridan and run their program from that location 24hrs/ day. This program is for 50 unaccompanied women and the size and scope of the program will remain unchanged.
4520 N. Beacon Proposal: Zoning change endorsed by the Beacon Block Club, will proceed to Committee on Zoning with support from Alderman Cappleman. This project is an adaptive reuse of the Hull House building at 4520 N. Beacon.
