Structural work has reached the second level for Cedar St. Companies’ 1135 W Winona Street in Uptown. The building is part of a two-building masterplan, each of which will rise five stories and offer a mix of ground-level retail and a total of 180 apartment dwellings.
More specifically, the smaller 1135 W Winona will be more prominently located at the corner of Winona & Broadway, and will house the retail component and 64 of the residences. Meanwhile, 1131 W Winona will border the CTA L tracks just to the east, and will be occupied by the remaining 104 apartments, 12 townhome residences, and amenities.
The amenity package will include a fitness center, an indoor resident lounge, and a rooftop deck. Both buildings will be connected by a fourth-floor skybridge to allow for easier navigation between the common areas.
With Booth Hansen as the project architect, each of the two edifices will stand 65 feet, and wrapped in a facade made up of floor-to-ceiling windows, fiber cement, aluminum composition, and metal rainscreen paneling.
Closest bus transit is accessible from the adjacent intersection of Broadway & Winona, with service for Route 36. Within a minute’s walk north are additional stops for Routes 92 and 146 via Foster & Broadway. The CTA L Red Line can be found at Argyle station via a three-minute walk southeast.
Method Construction Services is serving as the general contractor, with a reported cost at just under $14 million for the first phase at 1135 W Winona Street. Permits for the second building have been filed but not yet issued. An anticipated completion date for this broader development has been targeted for next year.
