Final facade work is progressing at Near South Side‘s 2401 S State Street, where developer City Pads has planned a four-story residential building. Set to accommodate 19 residences, the project will also incorporate ten on-site parking spaces and 33 bike slots. The current construction is replacing a formerly vacant concrete lot.
Built Form is the architect behind the masonry design, which involves a gray brick facade, dark metal accents, and vertical bays along its street-facing sides.
The development is a six-minute walk from the CTA L Green Line at Cermak-McCormick Place station, while Red Line trains are available via a 10-minute walk northwest to the Cermak-Chinatown station.
As far as bus service, Route 29 is readily available on the adjacent corner of State & 24th. For those looking to board buses on Routes 1 and 4, stops can be found at Michigan & 24th Street via a four-minute walk east. Lastly, in addition to the CTA L Green Line, Cermak-McCormick place station also offers stops for Route 21.
The nearly completed structure faces the major Southbridge development located across State Street, which is actively invigorating the neighborhood as work continues to progress. Part of this master plan is Park No. 540, with a playground and open green space.
At a reported construction cost of $4 million, 2401 S State Street’s general contracting work is being carried out by Anna Builders & Construction. Despite an opening very likely slated for this year, completion dates have not been announced.
