The public at-large will get their first chance to see a new proposal for a 28-story luxury apartment building planned for 835 Lake St. by Golub & Company on Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. in the ballroom of the 19th Century Club, 178 Forest Ave.
Property owners within 300 feet of the proposed development, which will be located less than half a block of Frank Lloyd Wright's Unity Temple, 875 Lake St., recently received a letter from Golub announcing the meeting. The property is currently home to a US Bank branch drive-thru.
Golub representatives have reportedly met with the leadership at Unity Temple and recently held a meeting with residents of the Courtland Condominiums, which is adjacent to the building site. Neither the press nor the public were allowed to attend the meeting with Courtland residents.
The letter sent to residents within 300 feet of the property acknowledges that the building planned will be 28 stories and will contain 256 units, a 3,500-square-foot bank drive-thru facility and 195 parking spaces.
