Moving to Armitage and Kostner

My wife and I are looking to purchase a house near Armitage and Kostner.

I am not extremely familiar with the area, so I was hoping for some insights regarding the crime and safety of the area. My wife and I are in our mid 20s and currently live near Milwaukee and Armitage and before that near Diversey and Pulaski (a couple blocks east of Pulaski).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • You are in your 20's and can afford / plan to buy?!! Wonderful! I have no problems with neighbors. Family oriented people. Welcome to the area!

  • Sam

    Unfortunately those cross streets are known as the section for the Latin Eagles street gang. Like most of the city gangs are unavoidable. They normally look for trouble amongst them selves but the riff raft is always around. Police presence is great around there. If you have children that are teenagers be very aware with them.

Zoning Question

Trying to make an existing garage into a livable space, for example a home office? Zoning did not approve. They want a change in the scope of work. Anyone has done this? How did you accomplish it? What does Zoning want? What kind of accessory usage would they approve?

  • IMHO, it's probably not that you described the space as an office- on your permit did you add plumbing for an office bathroom? If you just want to insulate, drywall, and put in a floor covering, they may not say anything.

    when you add plumbing, they think you are going to add a second living space ( or dwelling unit) which they won't allow due to density of people, parking, etc.

  • N. McNeal Interested in Lincoln Square and nearby areas

    No plumbing because I was trying to avoid the issue you mention. Reviewer said we needed to “change the scope of work”. He hasn’t responded to my questions so I am trying to see if someone else has done something like this and how they did it.

    You still need to call it something if you are insulating...drywalling, no? Any suggestions?

  • Actually, if I was only insulating and drywalling, I would not get a permit.

    If you are using a contractor that wants a permit pulled, he/she should know how to proceed with this question.

    Or if you are using an architect or expeditor, they also should know how to proceed.

    I also saw online a suggestion to go to your aldermans office , make a donation, and inquire about your permit. sounds about right...….
