A member requested that they would like a filter in Property Finder to locate corner lots. After a short feasibility investigation we found that it would be possible by locating parcels that are within 40 feet of two differently-named streets.
The "At an intersection or corner lot" filter can be combined with all other filters. We recommend adding – at least for searches in Chicago – a zoning district filter as well as a filter to exclude condos (this will also speed up the search). (If you don't exclude condos then there will be 100s of results in Property Finder that don't represent developable lots.)
How to use the corner lot filter
- Open a Place Report in Cook County (Chicago community area, ZIP code, etc.)
- In the Property Finder filters, look for the "Additional filters" heading and select the "reveal additional filters" link to expand this section and show the additional filters.
- Combine this with another filter. We recommend excluding condo (2-99), EX, and RR, properties in the "Exclude this property class" filter.
- Select the "Apply filters" button. A moment later the data table and the map will refresh with the results.
In the Near West Side community area of Chicago there are 202 corner properties that are zoned to allow multi-family housing.
