The renovation of the former YMCA at 3039 E 91st St. in the city’s south side has been issued a $10.35 million building permit by Chicago. The permit is part of a project to revive the structure as senior apartments and a community center. The permit was issued on July 29.
According to the permit, the work is for the “renovation of existing 101 units of affordable housing and former YMCA in existing five story building.
