Cool EVANSTON | 601 Davis Street | 353 FT | 33 FLOORS - DEAD

New Tallest

==========

33-Story Residential Tower Proposed for Evanston





Quote:
On March 7, a 33-story, skyline-altering residential tower was publicly revealed at a joint community meeting hosted by Evanston, Illinois’ 1st and 4th Wards. Slated to replace a bank drive-through and vacant lot at 601 Davis Street, the project comes from Vermilion Development – a firm that previously planned a 27-story tower for the same site back in late 2015.

The new, glassier proposal would contain 318 dwelling units, parking for 179 vehicles, and roughly 6,700 square feet (620 square meters) of ground-floor retail space. The older, two-story University Building at the corner of Davis and Chicago Avenue would also be preserved under this latest plan. At 33 stories, the project would surpass the 22-story, international-style Chase Bank Building to the immediate northwest as Evanston’s tallest building.

Some Evanstonians in attendance at the meeting were not thrilled with the increased shadows, traffic, and “wind tunnel” effect the new development could potentially create, reports Evanston Now. On the flip side, the project is expected to add 770 construction jobs, 27–31 permanent positions, and $750,000 dollars in annual tax revenue to the local economy.

So far, neither the 27- nor 33-story versions of 601 Davis have revealed a timetable for seeking the zoning changes necessary for the project to move forward. The developer is also behind a plan to replace the abandoned Lakeview gas station at Sheridan and Broadway in Chicago with a new mixed-use development containing 100 apartments and 2,200 square feet (200 square meters) of retail.
