Mavrek Development is planning an apartment building in Uptown next to the massive project under construction at Montrose and Clarendon avenues.

The Chicago-based developer wants to build a four-story, 20-unit building on a vacant lot at 843 West Agatite Avenue. The firm is set to go before the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals next week for setback and open space variations, along with parking approval because the property would just 19 spots.

If approved, the building would rise on land that was once part of the larger complex that housed Cuneo Memorial Hospital and later Maryville Academy, and dominated the intersection of Montrose and Clarendon.

Harlem Irving Companies and JDL Development are building a 27-story, 373-unit tower there dubbed Eight Eleven Uptown. The project is expected to cost $125 million, according to Curbed.

A Harlem Irving-led venture acquired a number of parcels in the area from the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart in 2016, taking out an $80 million mortgage from JPMorgan Chase Bank.

The Mavrek building would sit just west of the larger project and feature units ranging from one-bedroom, one-bath; to two-bedroom, two-bath, said Katey Moore, controller for the firm. Rents have not been determined, she said.

Moore said the deal to acquire the lot is pending. A construction timetable depends on securing the necessary city approvals, but Mavrek hopes to have the building ready for occupancy in spring or summer 2019.
