Structural work has surpassed the fourth floor mark for a five-story residential building located at 5440 N Sheridan Road in Edgewater. Developer Cedar St. Companies has planned for a total of 78 rental units, distributed across 72 standard apartment layouts and six townhome-style layouts. The townhomes will be accessible from the street, and will each come with three bedrooms. The traditional-styled residences will consist of studios up through two-bedroom units.
Amenities will be housed within a top-floor indoor/outdoor common area, comprised of an indoor lounge, a fitness center, and two terraces. On-site transportation accommodations include 27 parking spaces and storage for 78 bikes.
Chicago-based architect Booth Hansen is behind the design, whose massing is arranged in a U-shape around a first-floor atrium. The fifth-floor, meanwhile, is stepped back to allow for the aforementioned deck space. The facade component will involve a palette of fiber cement board, metal paneling, and a darker brick near the rear.
As for public transit options, closest bus lines can be found for Routes 136, 147, and 151 just paces north to Sheridan & Catalpa.
