ANDERSONVILLE — A building that houses a sushi restaurant in Andersonville could be reborn as a four-floor apartment building with ground-level businesses.
Developers Michael Slaven and Peter Slaven declined to discuss their proposal for 5058 N. Clark St.
But plans obtained by DNAinfo Chicago include renderings of the development showing a four-story apartment building with a glass-and-brick facade, and 3,157 square feet of retail space split between two ground-level storefronts.
There would be six apartments, all about 1,500 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, according to plans.
Absent in the renderings is Tokyo Marina, the sushi restaurant that currently occupies the current building, a one-story structure. Its owner could not be reached to answer whether than means the restaurant is out the door, and employees said they had been kept in the dark about Tokyo Marina's fate.
A business called Yarn Barn is one of the businesses depicted in renderings.
A business named Rolls & Bowls is also shown in the renderings. There's a restaurant in Lincoln Square with a similar name, Rolls N' Bowls, but it wasn't immediately clear if the businesses in the rendering were associated with that location. The owner of Rolls N' Bowls wasn't reachable for comment.
The project, which is in the 47th Ward, requires a zoning change for a driveway that would have be approved by Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th), according to his office, where aides said they were familiar with the project but had limited information as of last week.
It wasn't clear as of Sunday when the developers aim to break ground.
