re: 4501 N. Winchester Ave Senior Housing Proposal

at Lycée Français School (cafeteria) 1929 W. Wilson Ave
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.
See more info & drawings:
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.
