Work was completed for most Phase 1 on 2p, and parking was opened back up for all spaces except 136 and 137. Our team and the contractor is completing repairs to an area of the concrete ceiling over those spots, which was coming lose around an embedded electircal line.
On 1p, the contractor reported they’ve had a tough time removing the old membrane. So far, they’ve called it a learning curve, but they are a couple days behind where they expected to be. That being said, they expect to be done on schedule – as always there is a bit of wiggle room built in to the calendar. If this expectation changes, will follow up with the Phase 1 1p parkers as quickly as possible.
From August 3rd, through Thanksgiving in November, (then again in Spring 2021) Guest Parking will be seriously limited and may be unavailable at times due to the upcoming resurfacing project. Many of our own parkers will need to temporarily relocate. Below are nearby locations such parkers and Guests can be referred to. PT Parkers may want to consider using these facilities when their phase is undergoing the repair work to avoid the need to park on the street:
1. The Breakers 5333 North Sheridan Rd.
Dunkel Koku – Known as “Koku”
He told us, tell your residents when they call or stop by to let him know they are parking during the project next door. You will then not have to fill out an entire agreement. You will just have a one month guest pass.
MONTHLY PARKING Self-Park $149/month
0-1 Hour $15 1-2 Hours $21
2-3 Hours $26 3-4 Hours $30
4-24 Hours $38
2. Standard Parking 5455 North Sheridan Rd.
Abioduen Osinowo – Known as “Abby”
He said, tell your residents to go online to parking.com, and find the location 5455 North Sheridan. Follow the sign up process, pay your fee, then you drive up to the garage on the date assigned, and they will give you your temporary sticker for Valet Parking.
Valet Parking $190/month
One time $25 set up fee
0-1 Hour $13 1-3 Hours $17
3-6 Hours $19 6-8 Hours $21
8-24 Hours $25
Sadly the unpaved lot at 5440 North Sheridan, is no longer taking public parkers. So that location is not available.
ALL RESIDENTS – When you are expecting guests over the course of the project, regardless of the phase, you are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to call the garage ahead of time, 773-271-8859. For 3, 5, 7 day and 2 week passes, call the office, 773-769-3250. Due to the extent of the work and the reduction in space, we expect there will be very little room for guest parking. Monthly parkers who either voluntarily relocate or are forced to relocate during their phase, will be credited their fees. 1p parkers will receive a 1 month credit; 2p parkers will receive a prorated credit based on the number of days they need to relocate.
Garage Project Beginning Monday August 3rd
Targeted Vehicle Relocation Planned Over 8 Phases
The planned Garage Resurfacing Project on 1P and 2P is now expected to begin Monday August 3rd. Unfolding in 8 phases between now and July 2021. 4 months this Fall, and 4 months in Spring 2021 beginning March. During each phase, repairs will be performed 1 phase at a time. Work will take about 4 weeks per phase. On 1P, including removing the protective membrane, performing repairs to the concrete and drains, then replacing the membrane. On 2P, work will include routing and sealing of cracks, concrete and drain repairs.
During each 4 week phase, all self-parkers in the targeted location on 1P will need to be relocated, and guest parking will be significantly limited. (Valet parkers do not need to relocate, but could experience delays since we will have more valet parkers.) SEE “ALTERNATIVE PARKING OPTIONS” above. On 2p, all cars will need to be relocated for the first 3 to 5 days. After that, parkers on 2p will only need to relocate if more substantial concrete repairs are needed in the vicinity of their parking spot.
Following are the planned phases and impacted parking spots:
Phase 1 – Southwest Monday August 3rd

We expect room to provide Valet parking for 30-35 parkers on a first come first serve basis, with priority given to 1P parkers. We have the same RSVP list in place for Phase 1 as we did in March prior to the project being postponed. Otherwise, the Board has approved credits for other parkers based on the period of time you must relocate outside the building. To RSVP for a Valet spot during your phase, or if you are in Phase 1 and want to confirm, contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org. WE ACCEPT RSVPS, up 30 days out from the start of each phase, first come first served. All Self-parkers should plan extra time and caution coming and going for the duration of the project, as there will be reduced lanes for traffic, and maneuvering will require patience and diligence. Also, with more valet vehicles coming and going, more areas and lanes will be blocked more often.
