Final facade work is underway for a nine-story mixed-use building known as “Platform 4611”, located at 4611 N Broadway in Uptown. The 103-foot-tall project is being developed by John Buck Company and Free Market Ventures, who have planned for 12,000 square feet of retail and 200 rental apartments above.
The L-shape building, designed by Pappageorge Haymes, is mostly composed of a tan masonry exterior with big windows that go from the floor to ceiling. The exterior of the building will be white masonry with dark metal trimming. The first-floor storefronts will have white masonry, and the top of the building is set back to allow for a rooftop terrace area looking south toward the skyline.
The building’s commercial half will be broken down into apartments ranging in size from 1,628 to 2,178 square feet. The upper-level residential rooms will range from one- to three-bedroom floor plans. In addition to the fitness center, media and gaming room, co-working area, there will also be a rooftop terrace space.
Given the project’s transit-oriented nature, there will be a total of 22 automobile parking spaces. A bike room with 178 slots will also be available. At Wilson station on the CTA Red and Purple Lines, trains from Chicago depart across the intersection of Broadway and Wilson, while nearby bus stops provide service to Routes 36, 78, and 81.
James McHugh Construction is serving as the general contractor for this $43 million construction. Full completion and move-ins are expected for early next year.
