Foundation permits have been issued for 1135 W Winona Street in Uptown, the first of two buildings in a 180-unit project by Cedar St. Companies. Between the two five-story buildings, residences will range between studios, one-, and two-bedrooms.
The now-greenlit 1135 W Winona Street will house a mix of retail and 64 apartment units on its upper floors. While the second building at 1131 S Winona Street has not yet received permits, both were approved by the Chicago Plan Commission late last December. This larger building will be solely residential, with 104 standard-layout apartments and 12 townhomes. These integrated duplex townhouses will provide ground-level outdoor access, while a portion will also come with private outdoor terrace spaces.
The majority of the development’s shared amenities will be housed within the second building. The first floor will offer a fitness center, as well as a fifth-floor rooftop terrace and indoor lounge. Residents will be able to easily navigate between buildings either via the alley or a fourth-floor skybridge.
Booth Hansen is the architect for both of the 65-foot structures, whose facades are made up of a mix of aluminum composite panels, fiber cement, and metal panel rain-screen panels. The skybridge component, meanwhile, will be enveloped in an aluminum window wall system.
Bus service can be found at the adjacent intersection of Broadway & Winona, with northbound stops for Route 36. A minute’s walk north is the Foster & Broadway intersection, with additional bus service for Route 92 and 146. For those looking to board the CTA L Red Line, Argyle station is available via a three-minute walk southeast.
The current development comes as Cedar St. Companies wraps up a neighboring adaptive reuse and construction project known as The Draper. Both are part of a single master plan to redevelop nearly two whole blocks along the Uptown Broadway corridor.
Method Construction Services is serving as the general contractor for the construction, whose foundation work has been reported at $2.75 million. Full permits for the current construction been filed but not yet issued, while no permits have yet been filed for the 1131 W Winona Street.
