Structural work is now topped out with cladding nearing completion for 300 W Division Street, a seven-story mixed-use building at the southern edge of Old Town. The Domain Group is behind the development, whose plans comprise of retail space at ground level, and 89 apartments above. These units will be split with 65 one-bedrooms and the remaining 24 residences as studios. Ground-level parking will also be included, although the number of parking spaces is currently unknown.
Vari Architects is behind the rectangular design, which involves a red brick facade and four-paned windows with dark metal accents.
Residents, tenants, and shoppers will find bus transit for Route 70 at the adjacent 300 and 311 W Division stops. Additional bus service within a roughly five-minute walk consists of Route 37 to the southwest and Routes 22, 36, and 156 to the east. Those looking to board the CTA L will find Red Line access via a four-minute walk east to Clark/Division station. The Brown and Purple Lines are slightly further via either a 13-minute walk northwest to Sedgwick station or a 13-minute walk south to Chicago station.
The development is close to several parks such as Seward Park to the west and Washington Park to the southeast. A dense array of dining of dining options can also be found just east and northeast along Wells Street.
Since YIMBY’s last update, an additional portion of the building has been constructed near the rear. Work is expected to wrap up later this year.
