UPDATE, Nov. 4, 9:30 a.m.: Kiferbaum Development Group plans for a five-story, mixed-use development in Logan Square.

The Chicago-based developer is seeking the city’s permission to build a residential building with ground-floor retail space at 1966 North Milwaukee Avenue, according to city documents.

Kiferbaum bought the 4,000-square-foot vacant lot for $550,000 with plans for a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, DNAinfo Chicago reported last year The site is around the corner from the Logan Square Blue Line stop, making it a transit-oriented development that will include just six on-site parking spaces, city documents show.

The developer initially planned a 16-unit building on the site, but later bought the neighboring property at 1962 North Milwaukee and now plans a 28-unit project on the combined lots.

The city’s zoning committee will decide Thursday whether to approve a rezoning to make way for the development.

Kiferbaum President Joseph Kiferbaum declined comment on the project Monday.

Kiferbaum’s new development is going up next to Clayco’s 132-unit apartment building at 1980 North Milwaukee, a transit-oriented development that is under construction.

Kiferbaum recently built a 13-story luxury condo building in River North. The firm also is building six row homes at 2731 West Prindiville Street in Logan Square.

This story has been updated to clarify the number of units in the project.
