Placing 16th in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown, construction is wrapping up for 808 N Cleveland Avenue, a 23-story mixed-use tower in Near North Side. Standing 260 feet to its pinnacle, the high-rise is being constructed on a formerly overgrown trapezoidal site and is set to provide 7500 square feet of retail space, 200 rentable apartments, and 20,000 square feet of office space.
Residents set to live on the top floor of the building can look forward to private terraces attached to their units, while all residents will have access to a range of indoor amenities such as a spa, co-working area, game and entertainment room, and arts and crafts space. In addition to the plentiful indoor amenities, residents can also enjoy outdoor spaces like a dog run and spa. The main feature is an expansive pool deck located on top of the five-story podium, with another smaller deck nearby for convenience.
The Pappageorge Haymes design is composed of large windows, dark metal panels, and a beige precast concrete. As seen in the pictures below, these elements are now being hoisted into position to create an awe-inspiring façade that captivates all who view it.
With an impressive 99-vehicle garage and bike room, the property offers residents a plethora of accessible transportation solutions. Route 66 station is right outside your door, while the Chicago station is merely six minutes away with access to CTA Brown and Purple Lines.
Acting as the general contractor, Focus is on track to finish this project by early next year.
