A major 12-story residential development is approaching its full height at 4600 N Marine Drive in Uptown. Developed by Lincoln Property Company and designed by Valerio Dewalt Train, the project replaces a former parking lot attached to Weiss Memorial Hospital.
The building will feature 314 units, including studios, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, with some apartments offering private inset balconies. Though the number of on-site affordable units is just eight, the developer is committing an additional $3.1 million to Sarah’s Circle, a nearby organization that helps women facing homelessness. Amenities include a large lobby, a dog care room with outside access, a fitness center, a yoga studio, and a spacious multi-level outdoor deck occupying both the third and fourth floors.
Wrapped in a mix of glass curtainwall panels, dark gray brick, white metal panels, and wood-like accents, the structure’s U-shaped massing consists of two connected wings oriented around a large amenity deck. The heavily textured facade culminates in a series of buttress-like protrusions that create a unique roofline.
On-site transit accommodations include bicycle parking for 157 bikes and a 136-vehicle parking garage. The new building will also be closely connected to several public transportation options including adjacent bus stops for Routes 78, 81, 136, 146, and 148. Meanwhile, the closest Purple and Red Line CTA trains are available at Wilson Station, a 10-minute walk west.
The $90 million development is being built by Gilbane Building Company serving as the general contractor. Currently, the project is on-target for a 2024 completion.
