Owner of Incredible Oak Lawn Townhome Wants to Rezone it to Commercial

Share News:


I’m more than a little devastated by the news that this incredible townhome at 3845 Oak Lawn might be rezoned into oblivion. You remember it, right? Sexy garage full of antique autos, gorgeous conservatory-like dining room. Just amazing.

OK, that’s a little dramatic, especially considering that the owner, Shahab Salehoun, plans to add only ground-floor retail and office uses to the site, according to his zoning request facilitated by Baldwin & Associates. This amazing home was marketed for $10 million back in 2013, which is when Salehoun and Zohreh Malek purchased the property.



Of course, while Salehoun says in the application that there are no planned additions or construction, you have to assume that, should this zoning change go through, it’ll mean dicing up the interiors of this 1919 structure.

So far, the zoning request should receive a staff review on March. 1. We’ll have to see what happens then. Jump to see the full zoning request.
