After receiving the necessary administrative approvals, Third Street Ventures (TSV) can move ahead with plans to redevelop the former fire station located at 5555 N. Illinois St. On March 18, the City-County Council affirmed a Feb. 21, 2019 decision by the Metropolitan Development Commission (MDC) to approve rezoning of the site to the C-S classification, which permits general office, medical/dental office, restaurant/bar, retail, farmers market, and artisan food and beverage. Variance of development standards requests related to on-site parking and landscaping were also approved. TSV principal Antone Najem declined to comment on possible uses or a timetable for developing the site, which has been vacant since 2016.
