Facade construction can be seen at the site of 2406 W Armitage Avenue, a five-story mixed-use development in Logan Square. The corner property, located at the intersection of W Armitage Avenue and N Western Avenue, was previously occupied by a vacant one-story bank building, demolished last year.
Advent Properties is the developer behind the roughly 60-foot-tall building, which will feature 20 residential units and ground-floor retail space. In addition to the housing, there will be 13 parking spaces and bike storage available.
The design by Hanna Architects will be clad in brick masonry framing the structure, with metal siding as infill. The square windows will span nearly floor height, while balconies will be integrated into the eastern facade along N Western Avenue and in the rear hanging off the west elevation.
The property resides near several public transit options, including bus stops for Routes 49 and 73 at the adjacent Armitage & Wester. One block south are additional stops for Route 56 at Milwaukee & Wester. For those looking to board the CTA Blue Line, Western station is also available a two-minute walk south.
Archway Builders Inc is serving as the general contractor. While a precise completion date has not been revealed, the current pace of construction suggests work will likely wrap up by the end of this year or early next year.
