Zoning Committee Approves Jefferson Place

Zoning Committee Approves Jefferson Place
Today, the zoning committee approved the Jefferson Place development located at Lipps and Ainslie. I am proud to usher in this mixed-use, transit-oriented development directly adjacent to the city’s second busiest transit hub outside of the Loop.

By increasing density in a responsible way, Jefferson Place will support neighboring businesses such as the Copernicus Center, the Ed Paschke Art Center, the Gift Theater, Windy City Musical Theater, Gorilla Sushi, Weston’s Coffee and Tap Co, and others.

Jefferson Place will help breathe new life into downtown Jefferson Park by answering the demand for quality rental housing, leasable retail, and flexible parking. It leverages the multiple transportation options that are Jefferson Park’s best assets.

The building will provide 10,000 square feet of retail space, 114 apartments (11 affordable), and 200 parking spaces. The developers have committed to covering the expenses of improving the streetscape along Lipps, welcoming commuters and residents into the neighborhood.
