Developers with plans for a 6-story, 120-unit, market-rate project at 45 North Chicago Street (~850 West) are asking the city for approval to build a rooftop amenity deck in a planned development application submitted last week.

Heights in the TSA-UN-T zone have a limit of 60 feet of habitable space, which the building’s top floor will max out at.

Led by the local firm Design West Architects, the application’s initial design concept notes its proximity to the Folsom Trail and the 800 West Jackson-Euclid TRAX station. Manifest Development has been involved in parcel acquisition and is selling its interest to unrevealed out-of-state developers, a representative from Manifest told us.

It is also immediately north of Madsen Park, a frequent way station for urban campers. Coincidentally, the City Council is currently in the process of changing the North Temple Boulevard Master Plan to excise the statements calling for Madsen Park’s removal.

Project details include a 120-unit breakdown of 19 2-bedroom, 55 1-bedroom, and 46 studio dwellings. The building will encompass 110,034 SF of overall space.

Its street-facing façade, on the east along Chicago, will be 193 feet, just under the 200-foot TSA maximum. While renderings and elevations show ample window glazing at street level, it is unclear whether ground-floor activation for the public is in the plans.

Parking will be on a single level in a podium – providing 40 spaces for residents, a .33 to 1 ratio.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated, including a correction on parking information – it will be on a single level, not two.
