Construction permits have been issued for a five-story residential building for 2423 S State Street in Near South Side. The occupying owner, City Pads, plans nine units with a co-living layout. Other features will include a roof deck and accompanying pergola, a six-foot masonry trash enclosure, and five outside parking spaces.
The project’s architect of record is listed as Arden D Freeman of Built Form, LLC. While no renderings have yet been released, the permit filing lists multiple masonry contractors, suggesting stone or brick incorporated into the exterior design.
The address is currently occupied by a large empty lot along State Street, just north of the Stevenson Expressway. It is not clear if the address for the new development will include this entire parcel or only a portion of it. As far as transit near the lot, north and southbound bus access for Route 29 can be found less than a minute from the site at the State & 24th Street intersection. Additional access can be found for Routes 1 and 4 routes at Michigan & 24th Street, a five-minute walk northeast. For CTA L access, the two nearest stations are the Green Line’s Cermak-McCormick Place, a seven-minute walk north and the Red Line’s Cermak-Chinatown stop, an 11-minute walk northwest.
Park access for future residents can be found close by at the five-acre Park 540, less than a four-minute walk west.
Anka Builders & Construction is serving as the general contractor for the $6 million project. A completion date has not yet been indicated.
