Up-Zone Proposal for 3837 N. Kenmore

Up-Zone Proposal for 3837 N. Kenmore

Property owner, Kevin Derrig, is seeking to raze the existing building and to redevelop the site with a new four-story, 8 unit, residential (rental) building, which would be similar in architectural characteristic and massing to the building immediately to the north. The property currently has a three-story (with basement) multi-unit residence and a frame detached garage. There is a driveway which runs along the south side of the property, providing vehicular access to the garage. This proposal is a Transit Oriented Development, which would allow for onsite parking for 4 vehicles – a 50% reduction in required parking, require a zoning change from an RT-4 to an *RM-6 with a Transit Oriented Development . *They are requesting the -6 solely to apply for the TOD reduction. They are planning to meet all of the other criteria for an RM-5, such as height, MLA, setbacks, and FAR. This would be a mandatory Type 1 zoning amendment to ensure that they owner builds only to the -5 perimeters. Alderman Cappleman’s office will be hosting a community meeting on Thursday, June 27 at 6:30 pm located at Gill Park to discuss this proposal.
