Metal paneling continues to enshroud the six-story office building at 1525 N Elston Avenue in West Town. Developed by Property Adventures Corp, the boutique project encompasses 18,000 square feet, with office space divided between five suites on the second through sixth floors.
Suite sizes range from 3,191 to 3,706 square feet. Given the outward-tapering shape of the building, these square footages increase on the upper floors. On the ground floor will be a lobby space and parking for 21 cars.
Filoramo Talsma is behind the unique design. The massing not only tapers outward, but involves a series of box-like protrusions on its south-facing wall. The building is also marked by a series of band-like windows and clad in a series of smaller semi-reflective metal panels. The modern appearance of the structure will adapt well to the surrounding context as high-profile projects like Lincoln Yards transform the formerly industrial neighborhood.
Bus transit options include stops for Routes 9 and 72, which can be found via a two-minute walk northwest to the intersection of North Avenue & Elston. Also nearby are additional bus stops for Route X9, which can be found via an eight-minute walk northwest to Ashland & North Avenue. Those looking to board the CTA L will find Red Line trains via a 15-minute walk east to North/Clybourn station, while Blue Line trains can be found via an 18-minute walk southwest to Division station. Additional access to the Metra can be found via Clybourn station via a 14-minute walk northwest.
Property Adventures Corp is also serving as the general contractor for the current construction. While no updated completion date has officially been revealed, tenant move-ins appear likely for early next year.
