17-story building planned for parking lot on Oak

The parking lot at 1727 Oak Ave.

The Trammell Crow Company has scheduled a neighborhood meeting for Thursday, Oct. 19, to discuss plans for a 17-story building with 169 apartments that it hopes to build on a parking lot at 1727 Oak Ave. in Evanston.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in Room G300 at the Civic Center.

The project is described as an "active adult" development. No renderings of designs for the building or other details were immediately available from city officials.

The parking lot is part of the same land parcel as the 1007 Church St. office building, and when FD Stonewater acquired the building in January, company officials indicated in a new release that they were evaluating multiple possible uses for the parking lot.

The Dallas-based Trammell Crow Company is a national firm that has its midwest office in Chicago.

The property is located in the D3 Downtown Core zoning district, which under certain conditionss would permit a building height of up to 220 feet.
