Developers of the planned 12-story high-rise at 1571 Maple Ave. today received permits to start construction from the City of Evanston.

Developer Michael McLean says the permits received today will let work begin on installing caissons for the building’s foundation and that the developers today also submitted a request to the city for full permits for the project.


McLean says that the exact date to begin work hasn’t been set yet and that before work begins the development team and general contractor Novak Construction will hold a public meeting to inform neighobrs about the construction plan and schedule. The time and place for that meeting hasn’t been set yet.

The 101-unit rental apartment development was approved by City Council in April. The transit-oriented development will have most of its parking located two blocks north of the site, at the city’s Maple Avenue garage.
