Building permits were issued last week for the construction of 5 3-story 6-flats on a large tract of vacant land at 3408 – 3434 N Milwaukee Ave. We’ve placed calls, but have been unable to determine whether the units will be for sale or for rent. When we stopped by on Friday there was no activity on the site.
Milwaukee Ave from Belmont to Addison is dominated by sites that appear to be ripe for redevelopment. The neighborhood, part of Irving Park, has been referred to as Polish Village and as South Old Irving Park. It has had a predominantly Latino population for years.
