Exterior work has completed for a new six-story mixed-use building residing at 61 W Erie Street in River North. Having been planned by LG Development Group, the scope of the project involves ground-level retail and 28 condominium units above.
Three quarters of the units have been designed as larger live/work hybrid layouts, while the remaining seven listings are smaller efficiency units. Residents all have access to a sixth-floor penthouse enclosure and an amenity terrace with sweeping views of River North.
The masonry design by Jonathan Splitt Architects (jSa) complements the masonry style that is ubiquitous to the neighborhood. The first five floors of the building are wrapped in a tan-brick facade with dark metal window trimmings. Since YIMBY’s last update, the sixth floor amenity enclosure has been clad in dark metal paneling.
While the development comes with just two integrating parking spaces, a swath of public transit can be found in close proximity. Bus Routes 22, 29, 36, 37, 65, 66, 125, and 156 are all located nearby, while closest CTA L trains for the Red Line can be found at Grand Station, a six-minute walk southeast. Meanwhile, nearest trains for the Brown and Purple Lines are available at Chicago station, an eight-minute walk northwest.
LG Construction, a subsidiary of LG Development, has served as general contractor for the boutique project.
