Core work has topped out for a new four-story residential building, located at 2401 S State Street in Near South Side. The occupying owner, City Pads, has planned 19 total dwellings, with 10 on-site parking spaces and 33 bicycle spaces.
Arden D. Freeman of Built Form is the project’s architect of record. Previous drawings for a canceled office project showed a large glass curtain wall, though this design has likely changed due to the shift in usage. No updated drawings or renderings could be found, although the exterior appears to integrate a gray-toned brick cladding based on current construction progress.
