Construction on the 10-story Clarendale Six Corners development is nearing completion in Chicago’s Portage Park neighborhood. The mixed-use project includes 18,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, 258 senior living apartments and a variety of integrated amenities. The project, located at 4715 W Irving Park Road, is developed by Ryan Companies, LCS, and Harrison Street Real Estate Capital.
When complete, the Clarendale Six Corners will be a welcome addition to the Portage Park community. The new development will provide much needed shopping and dining options, as well as quality senior housing.
The apartments will offer a variety of floor plans, and prices will start at $4,400 per month for independent living, $6,000 for assisted living, and $7,200 for memory care. There will also be 11 affordable on-site units.
The amenities package is expansive, with spaces such as chef-equipped dining, private dining venues, a theater, continuing education services, an art and creative studio, a fitness center, a salon and spa, and a large central terrace area.
Designed by Ryan Architecture + Engineering, a subsidiary of Ryan Companies, the V-shaped building fits well to its triangular lot. It has two wings that surround a central amenity terrace. The facade incorporates a multi-tone brick palette, Juliet balconies, expansive windows, dark metal window accents, and other decorative architectural elements.
Clarendale Six Corners is part of a larger development project that will replace a former low-rise bank building and parking lot. This four-acre master plan will come with an Aldi supermarket and one additional retail space just to the southeast, as well as a pedestrian plaza with a public art installment between the two buildings.
The project site is serviced by several buses and the Metra, making it a convenient spot for transit riders. Routes 54, 54A, 56, and 80 buses all stop at the intersection of Milwaukee, Irving Park, and Cicero, while the Grayland Metra station can be found via a nine-minute walk southeast. The closest CTA L Blue Line station is Montrose Avenue, which is a 16-minute walk north.
The $117 million project, which is expected to be completed in fall 2022, will include a first-phase building. Ryan Companies is also serving as general contractor for the project, which is expected to have a positive impact on the local economy.

it’s actually sorta handsome for such a Hulk. I like the new brick color they chose up top instead of the grey, feels like more of a vintage 20s color combo
And it actually looks even better in person than the pictures lead on. The very slight setbacks give some dimension to it
What every main intersection of Chicago needs. This is a city, not a mall-f***ed po-dunk town with strip malls everywhere. Beautiful addition!
I agree that the size/scale is impressive and necessary and there are many things to like here. But aestheticically the squat little sheared off triangle of retail space at Irving/Milwaukee makes me queasy. I wish they’d have found a way to more elegantly transition the building down to street level at that location (or more boldly continue the massing a la the flatiron style). Recent Chicago developments on these types of sharply angled corners have left a lot to be desired.
Will there be Sec8 available
