King Library apartment structure features lobby from 1920s-period theater

A revised design and style for a new King Library department and connected flats now

A revised design and style for a new King Library department and connected flats now incorporates redeveloping aspect of a neighboring previous theater — and changing much of the setting up with area parking areas.

The progress proposal from Normal Cash Group LLP and Emem Team LLC again calls for a 4-tale building at the northwest corner of North King Travel and West Locust Avenue. It would substitute the existing King Library department.

It would function a new King Library and retail area on the very first floor, and 41 apartments on the 3 higher floors.

The strategies also phone for a four-story, 43-unit apartment setting up at the block’s other end, at the southwest corner of North King Travel and West Chambers Road.

Meanwhile, the foyer part of the former Garfield Theatre, which is in the center of the block at 2933-2957 N. King Travel, would be transformed into nine are living-operate models, said Sig Strautmanis, Normal Funds Team companion.
