I would like to thank everyone who was able to attend the community meeting on The Point at Six Corners in June. If you were unable to attend the meeting, there a video recording available on my Facebook page.
In response to discussions with my office and members of the community, Ryan Companies, developers of The Point at Six Corners, has made some changes to their proposal.
They have decreased the total number of units in the proposal to 248, a reduction of 15 units. They also have increased the number of independent living retirement units to 102, up from 86. The number of memory care units remains at 38, while the number of assisted living units has decreased to 108. The changes will increase the number of affordable units the builder must provide in the area to 10, up from 7.
The plans still call for 50,000 square feet of ground-floor retail along Milwaukee Avenue and Irving Park Road, with Aldi serving as the anchor tenant at Milwaukee and Kilpatrick. There will a second level of parking and 8 stories of market-rate senior living above the ground floor at the north end of the property. The south end of the property will be one story.
216 parking spaces are included, more than the City requires for a development like this.
The plans also include two public plazas along Milwaukee and a pedestrian connection between Milwaukee and Irving Park. The property is projected to generate about $1.5 million in property tax revenue annually.
