Alder Benford’s Updates

From Ald. Abbas regarding 1617 Sherman Ave.

September 29, 2022 9:56 AM

Dear Neighbor,


Vermilion Development is seeking a zoning change for the property at 1617 Sherman Avenue from Suburban Employment (SE) to Transitional Residential – Urban 2 (TR-U2). The development would include the demolition of an underutilized office building to be replaced with multifamily housing. The proposal consists of four (4) newly constructed buildings containing a range of home sizes from studio to three-bedrooms. The proposal includes both indoor and outdoor automobile parking and sheltered bike parking.


A virtual neighborhood meeting to learn more about Vermilion's proposal is scheduled for Monday, October 10, 2022, at 6pm. You can join the virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone, or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering at


I look forward to seeing you on October 10.


Ald. Syed Abbas
