Booth Hansen is the architect, whose design is comprised of a symmetrical two-wing massing surrounding a central atrium on the first floor. The fifth floor will be set back to allow for the terrace spaces and a rooftop green space. The facade includes a contemporary mix of materials including fiber-cement board along the front portion, metal paneling throughout, and charcoal-colored brick at the rear base.

  1. It’s nice to see new development creeping farther up the Northside into Uptown and Edgewater.

    I’m surprised you’ve only allowed for 27 parking spots.
    Do you really think you need so much bike space? The project is very exciting and will be a great addition to edgewater. Thank you for choosing Edgewater.
