12-Jun-17 The last undeveloped, non-park space along Lake Shore Drive at least between Chicago River and Diversey Harbor is going to be turned into rental property.
An eight-story 58-unit building will replace a parking lot bounded by North Lake Shore Drive, East Banks Street, and North Ritchie Court. An existing condominium, 1300 North Lake Shore Drive, will be its neighbor to the south.
The site is 25,431 square feet in size, according to plans filed recently with the city.
