Community Meeting on Zoning for 1513-23 N Wieland Street

A Community Meeting on Zoning hosted by Alderman Walter Burnett and the developers of 1513-23 N Wieland will be held on January 28th at 6:00 pm at Catherine Cook School’s Studio Space at 1350 N Wells Street (Wells Street and Schiller Street) regarding the four single family homes in the 1500 block of Wieland approved as part of Sub Area B, PMD 1335. The purpose of the meeting is to present plans to modify the approved development at 1513-23 N Wieland from 4 single-family homes to a single building containing 12 hotel suites. Consistent with the previously approved plans, there will be no curb cuts on Wieland and vehicular as well as guest access will only be from Wells Street. This change will require an amendment to the underlying planned development (PD 1335, Sub Area B). No amendments to the hotel portion of the planned development are being sought.

Please join 2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins for a formal presentation of a revised
proposed development for Father and Son Plaza, located at 633 W. North Ave. No RSVP is
required.

White Oak Realty Partners is proposing a new mixed-use, residential development with
ground floor commercial space that would require a zoning change from a B3-2 to a B3-5.

In December 2016, a public meeting was held to review the first proposal for the site,
followed by presentations to local community groups. Alderman Hopkins ultimately
rejected the proposal, citing concerns about height, density and traffic.

Recently, a revised proposal was submitted to the Alderman’s office and to community
groups for review. Alderman Hopkins seeks your input on the amended concept.

If you are unable to attend, there will be a digital presentation and feedback survey
published the day after the meeting on the 2nd Ward website and via newsletter.

Please contact the 2nd Ward Office at Ward02@cityofchicago.org with any questions or
comments in the interim, and we hope to see you there!

Up-Zoning Request Notice: 335 West Schiller

More Bad news for Density in our Neighborhood.  The developer for 335 West Schiller (This is across from Old Horse Stables, what has become defacto dog park) wants to up zone to B3-5, do 4K sq.ft. of Retail with 101 foot high residential building, probably 9 stories with 98 dwelling units.

That will be the tallest building in the neighborhood.

See attached notice sent to neighbors within 250 feet.
