Developers Full Circle Communities and Visionary Ventures plan to offer a range of unit sizes, from studios to three-bedroom apartments. These units aim to be affordable for households earning between 15 and 60 percent of the area median income (AMI), with a particular focus on providing housing for Native American communities.

The 79-foot structure will be wrapped in a masonry facade design lined with inset balconies with multicolored railings. Project architect Canopy / architecture + design has also envisioned for serrated outer walls on both the street- and rear-facing sides. These angular protrusions will add a dynamic element to the design while providing corner views to non-corner units.

The project’s location offers access to various public transportation options. The nearest CTA bus service can be found for Route 80 at the adjacent Irving Park & Francisco intersection. Additionally, the Blue Line’s Irving Park Station and the Brown Line’s Irving Park Station are each within an approximately half-hour walk.
