Construction has completed for a new seven-story mixed-use development at 949 W Dakin Street in Lake View. Developed by Draper & Kramer and dubbed “Wrigleyville Lofts,” the new construction comes with 13,000 square feet of ground-level retail, as well as 120 apartment units on its upper floors.
The retail portion entails a total of five units, the largest of which is Ace Hardware. The remaining four retail spaces span between 1,400 to 2,500 square feet.
Of the included rental units, 108 are laid out as one-bedrooms, while the remaining 12 residences are two-bedrooms. Apartments come with 9’4” ceilings, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, full-sized washer and dryers, and walk-in closets. Several of the units also come with attached terrace spaces. Spec-wise, available one-bedrooms range from 603 to 799 square feet, beginning at $1,820. Two-bedrooms span 996 square feet, beginning at $2,800.
Amenities offer a range of spaces, such as a private club area with an attached kitchen and bar, a fitness center, a bike room, and a rooftop deck with grilling stations, fire pits, and city views.
Sullivan Goulette & Wilson Architecture is behind the masonry design, with a facade comprised of tan face brick and limestone accents. Throughout the design are dark metal trimmings that further provide an industrial aesthetic.
Parking will provide a total of 14 spaces, contained in a ground-level garage. The development is also heavily transit-oriented, with the nearest CTA L Red Line service available less than a two-minute walk north to Sheridan station. As far as bus lines, service for Routes X9, 80, and 151 are all available within a two-minute walk of the property line.
In line with its branded name, the building is within a six-minute walk of Wrigley Field and the surrounding Wrigleyville commercial area. Various parks can also be found nearby, with Gill Park via a five-minute walk southeast and the Waveland Park area via a 15-minute walk east.
Leopardo Construction served as general contractor for the completed development. Leasing and immediate move-ins are currently underway for both residents and commercial tenants.
