ROGERS PARK — A third development for a three-block stretch of Devon Avenue was announced Wednesday night.

Ald. Joe Moore (49th) said in an email to constituents that Three Corners Development plans to build a mixed commercial-residential building at 1240-44 W. Devon Ave.

The company has already proposed two similar buildings to the west — and developer Scott Whelan plans to renovate the storefronts at 1221-27 W. Devon Ave. and build a two-story addition for five apartments facing Magnolia Avenue.

Whelan needs a zoning change from the City Council for his development, but Three Corners does not for its three buildings.

Three Corners' most recently proposed development would be three stories tall and include 7,000 square feet of commercial retail space on the ground floor, and 10 apartments above — six three-bedroom units and four two-bedroom units, according to Moore.

A ground-floor residential patio and 11 parking spaces would be at the rear of the property.

The developer plans to start construction in the spring and complete the building by the end of the year.

Three Corners built the Heartland Health Centers building a block away at the Weinstein Funeral Home's former location. In the deal for the property, Three Corners also bought the funeral home's three parking lots, which are where the new developments are being proposed.

An informational meeting about the development will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday at the health center, 1300 W. Devon Ave.
