LG Development Group has planned retail space on the first floor with 28 rental units above. While seven of these units will be studio apartments, the other 21 will be built to accommodate live/work layouts for tenants wishing for delineated residential and office space. The project will also include designated rooftop terrace space and sixth-floor enclosure for its occupants.
Jonathan Splitt of jSa is behind the project’s design, which features a tan brick facade and dark metal window treatment. The front face of the building will also integrate a series of subtle bays and a decorative cornice. Window widths will also vary to add a dynamic element to the design.
The transit-oriented development will include just on-site parking spaces, with a variety of public transportation options nearby. Buses within a three-block radius include Routes 22, 36, 37, 65, 66, 125, and 156. Those wishing to board the CTA L can find the Red Line’s Grand station, a six-minute walk southeast. The Brown and Purple Lines are also available via Chicago station, an eight-minute walk northwest.
The property lies within the area of multiple parks of interest, including Washington Square Park to the north, Magnificent Mile to the east, and the river and Riverwalk to the south.
LG Development’s affiliated LG Construction Group is serving as general contractor of the $19,825 square-foot project. The roughly $5 million construction is expected to deliver by the fourth quarter of 2021.
