LOGAN SQUARE — A developer is proposing another major residential project near the Western Blue Line stop in Logan Square.

The proposal to build a 59-unit apartment building at 2701 W. Armitage Ave. is set to go before a community meeting Monday night.

The development also includes 10,000 square feet of retail space along the ground floor.

The developer plans to include 80 parking spaces as part of the project, although the land is eligible for a reduction under the transit oriented development ordinance, which allows for less parking if a project is close to transit.

Those parking spaces would be in the basement of the building, according to a letter from the West Bucktown Neighborhood Association.

The proposal calls for 56 two-bedroom, two-bath apartments ranging in size from 950 to 1,150 square feet, and three three-bedroom units ranging from 1,600 to 2,150 square feet.

Eco Development plans to use the existing foundation of the building, which is a former factory, to build a new four-story mixed-use building, according to the West Bucktown Neighborhood Association letter.

The project required a zoning change.

The new project would be two blocks away from an upcoming 50-townhome development slated for 2502 W. Cortland Street.

The community meeting is scheduled for Monday at 6 p.m. at the 1st Ward office, 2740 W. North Ave.

The West Bucktown Neighborhood Association has reviewed the project and supports it.
