NOBLE SQUARE — Ald. Walter Burnett (27th) wants to hear community input on a developer's plan to build 143 apartments and 17 townhomes on land behind the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America building off the Kennedy Expressway.
At the meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Polish Museum of America, 984 N. Milwaukee Ave., Burnett and the project's developer, Marquette Cos., will meet with residents to get opinions and answer questions about the proposal.
Tuesday's meeting will help inform Burnett's decision about whether to recommend the zoning change requested by Marquette Cos., which has the 49,620-square-foot plot of land at 1326-1372 W. Walton St. and 933-945 N. Noble St. under contract with the sellers, the neighboring Polish Roman Catholic Union of America.
Marquette Cos. would need a zoning change to build the five-story luxury apartment complex named "Marq at Noble Square" at the northeast corner of Noble and Chestnut Streets.
Designed by Brininstool + Lynch, the building would have a 111-space parking garage, a bike storage room and "bike kitchen" where residents can make repairs to their bikes, an outdoor pool and deck and a green roof, according to the site plan.
Previously, Burnett told DNAinfo that he is waiting for feedback from residents before deciding whether to support the development plan.
