Lakeview High-Rise Plans Stalled as Community Group Says 'No'

Developer Sedgwick Properties announced this summer plans to replace a vacant gas station at 3901 N. Broadway with an 18-story mixed-use building.

The committee said it would support a smaller project on the lot — something similar in size to the six-story Chateau Hotel, which sits kitty-corner at 3838 N. Broadway.

Rolando Acosta, an attorney for Sedgwick Properties, said the idea was to build something similar in size to Halsted Flats, which sits 1½ blocks away at 3740 N. Halsted St. That building is 165 feet tall, he said, and the Sedgwick project would be 170 feet tall.
