The mixed-use development known as “Coppia” at 1101 W Van Buren Street has achieved construction progress up to its seventh floor out of its planned 19 stories. This West Loop project from Pizzuti Development is positioned between two existing residential high rises, filling a formerly vacant site.
The developing structure will introduce 298 apartment units and ground-level commercial space to the neighborhood. The unit layouts will range from studios to three-bedroom apartments. There will also be penthouses on the top two levels.
The development will offer a variety of amenities. Outside, the amenities include a deck with a pool, bar, cabanas, barbeque stations, fireplaces, and fire pits. Inside, there will be a 2,200-square-foot game room with arcade games, a golf simulator, and shuffleboard. It also plans to feature a fitness center, a clubroom, a 5,000 square-foot co-working space, a dog park with a spa, a 24-hour concierge service, and bicycle storage.
The design by Goettsch Partners features a high-rise with a glass curtain wall facade covering the slender and rectangular form of the building. The exterior includes a pattern of darker blue windows and light vertical metal panels. The roofline will have two different heights, and the ground level will include brick columns along Van Buren Street.
The building will offer 82 on-site parking spaces. It is also located near several public transit options. The CTA Blue Line’s Racine station is a four-minute walk to the west, and bus stops for Routes 7, 8, 20, 60, and 126 are also within walking distance.
Power Construction is the general contractor for the project. As of now, the building is planned to open by next year.
