ROGERS PARK — On Tuesday, residents will have an opportunity to discuss a proposal to demolish the former Duro Arts building at 1832 West Juneway Terrace and replacing it with a five-story, 760-unit Lockup Self Storage facility.
The development would require two "administrative adjustments," according to Ald. Joe Moore (49th), including reducing the required front setback from 7½ feet from the front property line to 4 feet and the required rear setback from 16 feet to 8.62 feet.
The changes would require the approval of the city's zoning administrator, though the project would not require any rezoning from the Zoning Board of Appeals.
It would require the demolition of the former site of an art supply manufacturer, which would likely occur before the end of the month once builders receive the proper wrecking permits, Moore said.
Construction on the project would start this fall and wrap up by mid-2016, according to the alderman.
Duro Arts stopped using the building last year when they merged with another company, according to Moore.
Each unit would have climate control access and the building would include both a drive-through entrance and exit for users to drop off items, Moore said. The parking lot would hold spaces for 10 vehicles and the facility would be staffed and open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Willye B. White Park Field House, 1610 W. Howard St.
