With construction nearly complete, work is wrapping up for a nine-story mixed-use development known as “Platform 4611” in Uptown. The 103-foot-high edifice, located at 4611 N Broadway, is jointly being developed by John Buck Company and Free Market Ventures. The project will feature 200 rental apartments and 12,000 square feet of retail space on the bottom level.

Pappageorge Haymes‘ design for the L-shaped building is clad in a tan masonry exterior, floor-to-ceiling windows, and metal accents. Anchoring the facade along the first floor is a white masonry and glass storefront system. The southern portion of the top floor will be recessed to allow for a rooftop amenity deck.

The structure’s commercial segment will be divided into apartments ranging from 1,628 to 2,178 square feet. The residential rooms at the upper level vary from one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Amenities include a fitness center, media and gaming room, a co-working space, and the aforementioned rooftop terrace.

Given the focus on public transit for this project, a total of 22 parking spaces will be allocated. Additionally, there will also be a bicycle room with 178 slots available. Directly intersecting Broadway and Wilson is the CTA Wilson station serviced by Red and Purple Lines. Bus stops nearby offer service to Routes 36, 78, and 81.

  1. This is a great building that should be the minimum standard for TOD projects. I like that they didn’t use brick spandrels to help with the verticality.

  2. I was pretty impressed by the initial renderings but as I’ve been driving by the site regularly I’m very impressed with how the building fits the site. Uptown has so much potential to be an awesome neighborhood (hopefully while maintaining some of its racial and income diversity but reducing the shady/seedy elements and blighted blocks).

    • Meant to say “not impressed” with initial renderings which seemed bland and blocky

    • It seems like Uptown has been the neighborhood that’s “next up” for the last 20 years or longer. You are correct about its potential which is endless. There is still a lot of underutliziation and surface lots that badly need developed. It would be nice to see mixed-use mid and high rise buildings shape the neighborhood into a city-within-a-city to really distinguish itself from other north side neighborhoods.

      It could be a premeier entertainment hub outside the core and the diversity does make it special. It’s not uncommon to hear multitudes of languages spoken walking around the area. Hopefully the Uptown Theater restoration project gets done and sparks further investments.
