Final facade work is now underway for a six-story residential building at 2700 N Sheffield Avenue in Lincoln Park. Known as “Sheffield of Lincoln Park,” the project is part of a broader renovation plan by Pihrl and the Chicago Housing Authority to renovate the Edith Spurlock Apartment complex, whose two existing buildings were originally built in the 1960s. Set to replace a parking lot between the pair of structures, the new 85-foot-tall edifice will house 80 residences to bring the complex’s total up to 485 units.
All units in the existing buildings are exclusively intended for seniors, yet the additional construction will welcome people of all ages. Residents will have the option of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with select listings including private balconies.
The architecture firm RATIO has designed a light-toned rain screen facade, with ground-to-ceiling recessed windows and cantilevered concrete balconies. On the first level is a mix of brickwork and glass panes that make up a window wall system along the lobby.
Our on-site parking lot can accommodate up to 50 cars and an additional 110 car spots are available in the nearby vicinity. For those commuting via public transit, there is bus service for Route 76 within three minutes of walking north from Diversey L station. This stop offers access to both Brown and Purple Lines as well as Red Line service that is nine minutes south at Fullerton station. Additionally, commuters have easy access to Route 8 buses located eight minutes northeast at Halsted & Diversey intersection.
