3114 Southport ZBA Hearing & Neigborhood Clean-Up Day

3114 N. Southport Zoning Board of Appeals Hearing

Are you wondering what is going on with 3114 N. Southport?

The owner of that building has been trying to expand its capacity beyond the zoning for years, which is why it looks the way it does now. The frequent attempts at rehabbing the building have been shut down by the city for various reasons including doing construction without a permit.

Now, the owner or developer is going before the Zoning Board of Appeals to legitimize their actions. If you’d like to attend the meeting, it will be on Friday April 25 at 2pm at 121 N. LaSalle, room 200.
