New Single Families @ Sherman & Austin

Early August there were only two houses at Sherman and Austin. Now there is a third. Two car garages in the back. No listings yet on Third Meridian Realty's (for sale sign out front) web site.

This land is (according to multiple real estate sites) is zoned R-5. Vague description below from the city of Evanston.
R5 General Residential District - The R5  general residential district is  intended  to  provide for infill development of a mix of multi­family residential structures at a medium density, including  townhouses, two­ family dwellings, three­ story  walk­ups  and courtyard  apartment buildings  that  characterize the  traditional multiple ­family housing development found in this district.

No listings for the houses @ 409, 411, 415 N Sherman, Evanston, Illinois yet. It was once grass and a parking lot. The parking lot sold last year for 215,000 in just 57 days. According to Redfin,"There is a sewer cover from the days when it was a staff parking lot for St. Francis Hospital before the parking garage was built". Redfin also points out that these properties are just two and a half blocks from the Purple line.
