Remaining glass installation has taken place at City Pads‘ 2401 S State Street, a four-story residential building situated at the corner of State & 24th Street in Near South Side. Plans shown in the building’s issued permits call for 33 total apartment residences, along with 10 off-street parking spaces and storage for 33 bikes. This new development is replacing a formerly vacant grass plot.
While updated renderings have not yet been released, current construction progress provides an idea of the ultimate appearance. Built Form is the design architect, whose design constitutes gray-brick cladding and dark-trim windows around a series of bays.
Beyond the on-site parking and bike storage, various public transportation options can be found within walking distance. Bus Route 29 is serviced by stops at the adjacent intersection of State & 24th. Also nearby is service for Routes 1 and 4, available at Michigan & 24th Street via a four-minute walk east.
As far as rail, those looking to board the CTA L will find the Green Line at Cermak-McCormick Place station, a six-minute walk northeast, while the Red Line can be found at Cermak-Chinatown station, a 10-minute walk northwest.
2401 S State Street lies just across from the Southbridge Megadevelopment, which will bring 877 new residential units to the Near South Side area, while also providing parks such as the recently completed Park No. 540.
Construction has been listed as costing $4 million, with general contracting work provided by Anna Builders & Construction. A full completion appears likely before the end of this year.
