200 New Residential Units Being Planned For River West Parking Lot

A new mixed-use development could soon be coming to River West. Developers recently submitted a zoning application to construct a 23-story structure at the corner of Carpenter and Milwaukee. 

Plans call for replacing a one-story building and parking lot that currently reside at the site, while also rehabbing a mid-rise office building. In all, the proposal would bring more than 200 new residential units, office space and some ground level retail space to the area. There would also be parking for nearly 100 cars and storage for upwards of 160 bicycles. 

The development still needs approval of a zoning change from manufacturing to downtown mixed-use. If all goes through, though, the new development will go up right across the street from a new apartment complex, and join a number of other new developments projected for the area. These new projects include a seven-story building and a new, 13-story project, already slated to come to the River West neighborhood in the near future.
