Plan Commission Hearing on 1620 Central Street Planned Development Set for March 11

The Planned Development proposed for 1620 Central Street has been scheduled for a hearing by the Evanston Plan Commission. The Plan Commission has given public notice that the hearing will be held on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, at 7:00 PM in the Council Chambers at the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Avenue.

John Myefski, Myefski Architects, has applied for a Special Use for a Planned Development in the O1-Office District and oCSC-Central Street Overlay District to construct a four-story (45 feet high) multiple-family building with 47 residential units and 54 underground parking spaces.

Myefski is seeking site development allowances for:

  • The number of parking spaces:
  • Required step-back for the 3rd and 4th floors from Central Street
  • A landscape buffer zone for the loading dock in the rear
  • The building height over transitional height plane requirement along the south property line.

In addition, the public notice of the hearing stated that Myefski "may seek, and the plan commission may consider, additional Site Development Allowances as may be necessary or desirable for the proposed development."

The Plan Commission makes a recommendation to the City Council, which is the final determining body for the proposal.
