City Review Process for West Humboldt Park Project Gets Underway

Development plans for a $25-million mixed-use effort are set to go before city officials Wednesday, as review of a project that calls for housing, retail and office space in West Humboldt Park gets underway, the Chicago Business Journal reported

The design committee for the Chicago Department of Planning and Development will review the proposal. It must also pass muster with the city’s zoning committee, Community Development Commission, Chicago Plan Commission and the City Council. 

The project, dubbed The Ave., is a joint venture between the Preservation of Affordable Housing Inc., KMW Communities LLC and Community Empowerment Through Construction. It would be located at 3601-25 W. Chicago Ave. 

The project would combine private and city-owned land to build 49 units and develop 7,700 square feet of commercial space. Although a request for proposals is still to be issued for a general contractor, developers are considering a Chicago-based company for pre-construction work.
