Jefferson Apartment Group of McLean, VA, yesterday told the BPDA it will soon file detailed plans for a six-story, 150-unit apartment building on Worthington Street, near Huntington Avenue, behind its existing 20-story J-Vue at LMA on St. Alphonsus Street.
In 2014, a Chicago developer proposed a 35-story residential building on the site, but nearby residents and the city both said that was more than a tad out of character for the neighborhood and the company eventually gave up.
The site is now home to a parking garage for J-Vue, which Jefferson wants to replace with its new building - and an 85-space underground garage that will serve residents of both the new building and J-Vue.
Jefferson said it would provide a range of units from studios to three-bedrooms and that it would provide the required affordable units - at least 13% of the total - on site.
