This Week at the Chicago Plan Commission...
River North Development Approved at 311 W. Illinois

February 19, 2016

 

The Chicago Plan Commission met yesterday and approved a new development at 311 W. Illinois Street, located at the southwest corner of Franklin Street and Illinois Street. The proposal was submitted by Illinois Franklin LLC and Order of Friars Servants of Mary, USA Province, Inc. (the "Order").

 

 

The current site includes a church (Assumption Catholic Church), priory and gardens, and surface parking lot with single-story garage structure.

 

Illinois Franklin LLC will redevelop a portion of the property with a 24-story (plus mechanical penthouse) tower with 245 dwelling units, 109 parking spaces and ground floor retail. A portion of the parking in the tower would be dedicated to the church.

 

The residential-retail building would be LEED-certified and include a 50% green roof. The building base will be clad in masonry, and the upper floors of the tower would feature glass and metal with recessed balconies at the corners. The tower lobby will be setback from the adjacent church to provide a plaza and preserve views of the church façade.

 

The Order plans to rehabilitate the existing 2-story priory structure and construct a one-story vertical addition to provide parish office and meeting spaces, group living quarters for members of the Order, an elevator, and other ADA-accessible elements. The vertical addition will be clad in metal paneling in a complementary color to the existing priory masonry and limestone.

 

Additional improvements will enhance the existing priory gardens, and feature new landscaping, shade trees, a new entrance on Orleans and accessible pathways. No changes are proposed to the existing church itself.

 

The application utilizes Floor Area Ratio (FAR) bonuses under the Affordable Housing FAR Bonus, Transit Infrastructure FAR Bonus and Adopt-a-Landmark FAR Bonus to increase the maximum FAR from 5.0 to 8.0.

 

Once construction commences, a thorough effort will be made to protect the existing church structure, including use of photography and vibration monitors to take extreme care in excavation.
