Noah Properties is moving forward with plans to build a cluster of small apartment buildings and a community center in the city’s Galewood neighborhood, expanding an existing gated rental complex.

The Chicago-based homebuilder applied for permits Monday to build 39 apartments spread across eight buildings between 2114 and 2158 North Nashville Avenue, near the city’s western limits, according to buildings department records. Each building would contain three or six units.

A ninth permit application describes a single-story community center at 2112 North Nashville, records show.

The new homes would fill out the western edge of Galewood Flats, a new private gated community Noah is building in a previously-vacant pocket of land near the corner of Natchez and Dickens avenues.

Across the street from the planned apartments, listings by Sergio & Banks Real Estate and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group advertise two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments in “Galewood Flats Phase 4,” where rents start at $1,850.

The development is about a half-mile south of the massive Brickyard retail complex, where more than a dozen shops and restaurants surround a Target and Lowe’s Home Improvement store.

Noah Properties ran afoul of the city last summer, when a buildings inspector found exposed electrical cables running between some of the new Galewood homes. The city suspended the developer’s building license but restored it the next month, after Noah paid a fine and brought its buildings up to code, a city spokesperson said.

Noah was founded by Bart Przyjemski and Anita Lisek in 2002. The company lists a portfolio of nearly 100 single-family homes and 50 multifamily properties scattered across the city’s Northwest Side, including a tight cluster of more than 20 modern-style houses in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood.

A couple sued the company last year, alleging defects in the HVAC system and windows of the Wicker Park condo they bought for $650,000 in 2014. The suit is still pending.

Przyjemski and Lisek did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
