Revised Edgewater apartment plan earns aldermanic support

Revisions recently applied to a transit-oriented rental proposal for Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood have helped earned the project the support of local Alderman Harry Osterman. The plan (you can see an image of it here) would replace a carwash at 6145 N. Broadway with a new apartment building with ground floor retail. The project comes from co-developers City Pads and Catapult Real Estate Solutions and architectural design firm Built Form.
