  • PROJECT NARRATIVE – 2751-2753 NORTH HAMPDEN COURT

    2751 Hampden Court, LLC (the “Applicant”) proposes to develop the property commonly known as 2751 North

    Hampden Court (the “Property) with a new, residential development. The site, which is approximately 12,825 square feet,

    is currently vacant. The Property is zoned RM-6 Residential Multi-Unit District and is also located in the Private Zone, as

    that term is defined in the Lake Michigan and Lakefront Protection Ordinance.

    Surrounding land uses are predominantly residential with the principal zoning classifications being RM-5 and RM-6.

    The proposed building, at approximately 78 feet in height, fits well into the context of the surrounding area and is in fact,

    much less dense than many of the neighboring buildings.

    The Applicant proposes to develop the Property with a 15 unit residential building. The ground floor will be

    improved with lobby space, mechanical functions and 27 accessory parking spaces. The first floor parking garage will be

    accessed from the alley next north of West Diversey Parkway. One 10’ x 25’ loading berth will located on the south side

    of the building and will be accessed from the alley next east of North Hampden Court.

    Floors two through 7 will be will be improved with 15 dwelling units. The unit mix will be 4 three bedrooms, 8 four

    bedrooms and 3 five bedrooms and range in square footage from 2,200 to 4,600. It should be noted that the Applicant is

    constructing substantially fewer dwelling units that is permitted by the current zoning classification. Even though 42 units

    are permitted, the Applicant is only building 15 units.

    The building will have a floor area, for floor area ratio purposes, of approximately 52,288 square feet, or a 4.11 floor

    area ratio which is about 4,100 square feet less than what is permitted.

    The Applicant intends to implement the following sustainability strategies in order to meet the City of Chicago’s

    sustainability policy: Other sustainable features in the building include: Designed to earn the EnergyStar, exceed the

    energy code for efficiency by 5%, 50% green roof, proximity to transit, bike share sponsorship, exceed bike parking

    requirement by 100%.
