A residential development that would build 50 single-family homes on a 7.5-acre lot in Norwood Park is nearing final approval.

Lexington Homes and Pappageorge Haymes plan to develop the complex at 7401 West Everell Avenue in Norwood Park. It just won approval from the Chicago Plan Commission, according to Chicago Yimby. It now heads to the zoning committee, then the full Chicago City Council.

The development would be a mix of one- and two-story homes, with up to four bedrooms each.

The plan originally included townhouses and less green space. But over time, the focus shifted to single-family homes, according to the report. The developer plans to build the homes close to the road and close to each other. Sidewalks will also be included in the development.

The complex will have multiple green spaces, including a small park.

Each of the homes will be 30 feet tall and available in four different styles. The development will also include unattached garages for each home that will provide parking for two cars. The garages will be accessible via private rear alleys. In addition, 15 guest parking spaces will be built on the development’s north-running street, according to Chicago Yimby.

The subdivision, which has been nicknamed “Lexington Square,” will put the homes on either side of a new private road in between the high school campus and the retirement community. The development will be accessible via an entrance on Talcott Avenue and another northern access point will be limited to emergency vehicles as needed.
