Ald. Pawar (47th ward) invites you to hear about and comment on a proposed adaptive use of this former Ravenswood Hospital building into 74 senior affordable CHA units and an elderly supportive living facility with 120 units. The development would also include 105 parking spaces in deck garage.

From the 47th ward:
Dispensary 33, located at the corner of Clark and Argyle (5001 N Clark), has requested a loading zone in the first parking spot on the north side of Argyle just east of Clark (between the no parking sign and the driveway) for their deliveries and patients; see picture attached for location. The proposed hours are 9AM-8PM on all days of the week as deliveries may occur an hour before the business opens or an hour after it closes. The zone length would be the standard 20 feet (one vehicle) and this would be convenient since it is near both the front and rear entrances. The City has revised their standing/loading zone process in order to reduce the time between application and installation of the zone, so signs would most likely go up within about 3-6 months if approved. Please provide any feedback related to this request by 12/31.
From the 47th ward alderman’s office:
CDOT proposes to extend the Glenwood Neighborhood Greenway south of Foster to provide a connection over to Broadway; please see the attached document for more details (Glenwood Neighborhood Greenway Proposal.) On Glenwood north of Foster (up to Ridge), a contraflow bike lane will be marked off to allow cyclists to head southbound in a dedicated contraflow bike lane that is separate from traffic. This is planned to eventually extend up to Evanston. CDOT is proposing to extend this route along Glenwood south of Foster (through the 47th Ward) to connect along Carmen over to the existing buffer protected bike lanes on Broadway. With Glenwood and Carmen both being two-way streets, this would simply mean shared lane markings and signage would be added between Foster and Broadway… no dedicated lanes would be marked and no parking spaces would be lost. This will help provide a neighborhood connector to link up with the greenway north of Foster and the protected lanes on Broadway while simultaneously calming vehicular traffic through the neighborhood. At Broadway, CDOT is looking to install a bicycle and pedestrian refuge island in the middle to provide a safe spot for cyclists to make this turn (and for pedestrians to cross Broadway).
Contact the 47th ward with questions.
