Developed by Interra Realty, the building will contain retail space on the first and second floors, with nine apartments above. A 2019 article by Block Club Chicago mentioned that these units will range in size from a one-bedroom priced at $1,700 a month, to two-bedrooms priced at $3,400 a month. Permits issued in September also indicate a planned rooftop deck for tenants.
Drawings by the architect HKS Architects show a dual-facade exterior, with large windows spanning the first two floors. The four apartment floors above utilize warehouse-inspired windows and corner balconies.
