Final construction progress is closing in for a mixed-use building being developed by Cedar Street Companies at 4600 Kenmore Avenue in Uptown. The five-story building is set to house 2,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and 62 rental apartments situated above. The unit sizes will range from studios to two-bedroom apartments. Specifically to the fifth level, a portion of the units will also possess their own private terrace space intermingled with a green roof.
Designed by Level Architecture, the building’s street wall stands out with its incorporation of semi-reflective ACM panels with extruding triangular patterns. Additionally, the secondary facade features flat gray metal paneling around the fifth floor. To allow for the aforementioned terrace space, the top floor is inset from the lower ones.
The building’s amenities include a designated lobby, a dog run, and a nearly 700-square-foot roof deck available to all residents. There will also be 62 bike slots and 13 parking spaces.
The project is also being built alongside a latter-phased renovation of a former bank, located adjacently at 1050 W Wilson Avenue. Double Door, a prolific Chicago club and music venue, will relocate from its former location in Wicker Park into what will be a 700-person music hall employing 60 people. This renovation recently received a 7(a) tax incentive that will save around $564,000 over the next 12 years.
In addition to the parking and bike spaces, residents will find a major transit node just two doors down. Just one block west is Wilson & Broadway, which offers bus stops for Routes 36 and 78. Next to this intersection is Wilson station with service for the Red and Purple Lines.
The $43 million project is being constructed by Method Construction and is expected to be completed towards the middle of this year.
