Parking requirements

The City of Chicago requires off-street car parking (on the property) for nearly all buildings and developments, as well as new businesses. We have distilled the most important parking requirements for residential developments. Parking requirements for non-residential developments are too complex to be simplified here at this time as they are based on the type and size of the business or development being proposed.

Parking requirements for developments with non-residential uses require a zoning assessment that's specific to the proposal. Contact us to order a customized zoning assessment.

Review the TOD Status below to determine if this location is eligible, based on its proximity to transit, to take advantage of a reduced off-street car parking requirement.

The Chicago Zoning Ordinance allows for off-site shared or cooperative parking for situations when off-street parking cannot be provided on the same property.

Home mortgages in 2438 N Western Ave's Census tract

This section is inspired by the joint WBEZ and City Bureau investigation, called "Where Banks Don't Lend", of home mortgage lending activity in Chicago. The investigation used data about applications for a new home mortgage collected by the federal government pursuant to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). The investigation found that the country's largest banks, and the ones with the most loans in Chicago, have disproportionately not lended in neighborhoods of color. Additionally, redlining and other discriminatory actions by lenders and real estate agents in the 20th century in Chicago led to contract buying as the only way Black people could "buy" homes. Info on refinancing is excluded

464 home mortgage loans were applied for, and 395 were issued to households in this Census tract from 2012-2018, where the dominant race/ethnic group is White.
