According to recent reports, a new large-scale development being planned for Wicker Park has officially been approved, likely bringing 200 new residences to both Milwaukee Avenue and Divisions Street.
The permits issued to developers call for a 15-story apartment tower at 1640 W. Division, while 17 townhouses and a 7-story condo building is also part of the overall project scope. Being called Wicker Park Connection, Wicker Park’s newest development is from Centrum Partners and its design is from the Hirsch Associates architecture firm.
As noted by reports, construction for Wicker Park Connection can now begin at any time. Additional details about the project have yet to be released, although look for ground-level retail space to also be incorporated as well.
