LINCOLN PARK — Plans to build a five-story residential building on Clark Street are moving forward with approval from the city's Plan Commission.
The Plan Commission approved the plan Thursday, which includes 32 residential units and 31 parking spaces at 2050 N. Clark St, a site currently occupied by the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus.
It comes after the plan was granted zoning approval from the city's zoning board of appeals in May. Despite its small size, it had to go to the Plan Commission because it sits in an area protected by the Lakefront Protection Ordinance.
Nicolas A. Long of the law firm Reed Smith, who is listed as the permit applicant, deferred questions about the project to Novak Construction, which declined to comment.
When the development is built, it'll join a controversial project nearby that includes tearing down a 225-stall parking garage and building million-dollar condos in its place.
