“A row of four 19th-century apartment buildings in Lakeview will be demolished, to be replaced by two 21st century-apartment buildings.
“Of the four buildings, all on the 3300 block of Kenmore Avenue, the oldest dates to 1879 (it’s second from left in the photo) and the youngest to 1898 (it’s at far left), according to the Cook County Assessor. They are all owned by entities associated with ICM Properties, a real estate investment and management firm based nearby on Lincoln Avenue.
“All four buildings were issued demolition permits July 22, according to Chicago Cityscape, which tracks permits and construction in the city. ICM executive Adam Winick has not responded to Crain’s requests for comment.
“Bennett Lawson, chief of staff for Ald. Tom Tunney, in whose 44th Ward the buildings lie, told Crain’s in an email that ICM plans to build two new six-flats on the site and is requesting no variance from the existing zoning. Lawson said “it’s our understanding” that ICM will own and operate the new buildings. Lawson had no other details on the buildings, such as exterior renderings.” (Rodkin, 7/25/19)
