Alderman Harry Osterman
United States of America

This petition is directed at our elected leaders from the Chicago Edgewater neighborhood.

Specifically, it pertains to any new development at the corner of North Sheridan Road and West Foster Avenue.

The current property is reportedly zoned for up to 500,000 square feet of development that could include a new high-rise with as many as 300 new residential units.

The high-rises that are currently in our area are not at full occupancy.

The residential market is not strong enough to sustain such a building.

Another tall building would only strengthen the barrier between the lakefront and Edgewater residents.

Increasing the density in Edgewater will only result in putting more strain on our roads, police department, fire department and school districts.

A building over 100 feet tall will increase shadows where we walk and live and bring unwanted traffic jams.

We, the undersigned, call on the Alderman Harry Osterman to deny any future high-rise variances near the corner of N. Sheridan and Foster in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago.

We view any new high-rise in this area as extremely unfavorable. Such a development would increase congestion and traffic to unmanageable levels and only work to strain our neighborhood character and present quality of life.
