Installation of polygonal metal paneling can now be seen along the outer walls of 4600 Kenmore Avenue, a six-story mixed-use building in Uptown. The project is being lead by Cedar Street Companies, with plans for 2,500 square feet of retail on the ground level with 62 rental apartments above. The new construction will be next to an old bank at 1020 W Wilson Avenue, which is being transformed into a new music venue for Double Door Music.
The main façade, designed by Level Architecture, will have semi-reflective ACM panels that expand outward as 3D triangular patterns. The secondary facade for the building will be a flat gray metal paneling around the fifth floor. This top level will be set back from the lower floors to allow for a green roof and various rooftop terrace spaces.
The residences in this development vary from studios to two-bedroom floor plans, and most of the units on the fifth floor have private terraces. Even though the development is boutique sized, residents will still have access to a selection of amenities and building features. The fifth floor will have a common area rooftop deck that is 670 square feet, and it will also come with an attached indoor lounge. Additionally, the building’s base level will offer a lobby located off of N Kenmore Avenue, dog run access, a bike room with 62 slots for bikes, and a garage with 13 parking spaces.
The project, which relies heavily on public transit, is a single block from bus stops for Routes 36 and 78 and the CTA Red and Purple Lines at Wilson station.
The $43 million construction was completed via Method Construction as a general contractor, and it is anticipated to open prior to the conclusion of this year.
