Evanston's Plan Commission Wednesday night postponed action on a planned office building in the 1700 block of Chicago Avenue until January after receiving a request for delay from the head of the condo association for another building on the block.
Evanston's Design and Project Review Committee this afternoon recommended that the City Council not approve the office building proposed for what's now a city parking lot at 1714 Chicago Ave. downtown.
Plans for a 13-story office building on the Chicago Avenue site downtown that now is used as a surface parking lot are scheduled for review by Evanston's Design and Project Review Committee next Wednesday, July 11.
Fourteen months after the city first started considering the sale of a downtown parking lot for the site of an office building, Evanston aldermen Monday are scheduled to get a contract to actually sell the land.
At their final meeting Monday night, members of Evanston's 79th City Council voted to reverse the vote they'd taken last month and authorize the city manager to negotiate a contract to sell the city parking lot at 1714-1720 Chicago Ave.
