LAKEVIEW — Developers will be updating neighbors on several building proposals during Lakeview neighbor association meetings over the next couple of weeks. Find out what's going on in your neighborhood:
West Lake View Neighbors: A plan to build the Chicago area's second-largest Whole Foods Market at the Lincoln/Belmont/Ashland intersection has been frustrating neighbors who want the developer to consider their counter proposal. On Monday, West Lake View Neighbors will hear from Novak Construction about an update to the plans.
Neighbors will also be discussing a transit-oriented development proposal for Southport Avenue and Roscoe Street. The proposed 33-unit rental building at 3401-09 N. Southport Ave. will include first-floor commercial space. The neighborhood group reminded residents that it did not distribute fliers criticizing the project, pointing to the developer's response on the 44th ward website.
The meeting will start at 7 p.m. Monday at Mystic Celt, 3443 N. Southport Ave.
South East Lake View Neighbors: Revisions to a proposed 19-story condominium building will be announced at Monday's meeting of South East Lake View Neighbors. The 82-unit building at 2950 N. Sheridan Road was approved a few years ago but never built, Ald. Tom Tunney said in a newsletter.
Developers for 508 W. Diversey Parkway will also present revised plans for a 53-unit building with ground-floor commercial space. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Second Unitarian Church, 656 W. Barry Ave.
South Lakeview Neighbors: Redevelopment plans for the Herdegen-Brieske Funeral Home at 1356 W. Wellington Ave. will be presented during the Tuesday meeting of the South Lakeview Neighbors. The owner and developer have promised to preserve the "iconic" building's facade, and retail will be included in the plans, the association said.
The meeting will also include an update from the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce on the Lincoln Hub construction, which has some neighbors upset due to back-up traffic at the Lincoln/Southport/Wellington intersection. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport Ave.
Triangle Neighbors: Lakeview resident Ellen Hughes will be addressing Triangle Neighbors on the CTA's proposed Belmont bypass. Hughes and the Coalition to Stop the Belmont Flyover pushed for a referendum question on the plan in November, when voters overwhelmingly opposed the project.
Ald. Tom Tunney's office will also provide updates on the Belmont-Clark development — which he recently announced would have TargetExpress as an anchor — and Addison Park on Clark, which is set to begin construction after the Cubs season concludes this fall.
Triangle Neighbors will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Town Hall District Police Station, 850 W. Addison St.
Hawthorne Neighbors: The Belmont bypass will also be discussed in the adjacent Hawthorne Neighbors meeting, which will be at 6 p.m. May 20 at Under the Gun Theater, 956 W. Newport Ave.
