Big Reveal: Rehab Plans for 222 Chicago

A warehouse complex behind the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino has a residential and commercial future.  Ellicott Development is proposing renovations to the former home of J.W. Ruger Company and Kellner Brothers at the southwest corner of Chicago and Perry streets into seven apartments, retail/office, and warehouse space. 

From the Application:

The building was constructed in 1868 and has had several additions between 1872-1925. We propose to renovate the interior of the building into a mix of uses. The first floor would include retail/office space fronting on Perry Street, warehouse space in the rear and 7 market-rate apartments would occupy floors 2 and 3. We are working in consultation with the State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service to rehabilitate the property in alignment with the Secretary of Interior Standards for Historic Preservation.

Ellicott Development needs Zoning Board of Appeals approval to construct a 33-car parking lot south of the building along Chicago Street.  The variance is for accessory parking in a front yard. The Preservation Board approved demolition of a small mixed-use building to make way for the construction (above).
