UPTOWN — A new 12-unit condo building has been proposed for the Truc Lam Buddhist Temple in Uptown.

The proposal for the building at 1521 W. Wilson Ave. requires a zoning change, according to the 47th Ward website.

The project would feature a new 50-foot-tall building at the site, according to building permits.

The temple, which is more than 135 years old, went on sale earlier this year with a $2 million pricetag. The two-story religious facility has a basement, seven bedrooms and two meeting rooms, according to its listing on Loopnet.com.

Owner Mavrek Development tapped Sullivan Goullette and Wilson Architects to design the project.

A date has not been set for a meeting on the zoning change, according to the 47th Ward website.
