Building permits have been issued for the residential development at 2128 S Tan Court in Chinatown. Dubbed ‘Evergreen Garden’, the project will replace the long-term vacant lot bound by the CTA Orange Line tracks on its northern end. The permit will allow for the construction of the first phase of the two-phase development, with initial piling permits having been granted earlier this year.

Set to rise six stories and 79 feet tall, the project is being developed by Tan Court Development LLC with local architecture firm FitzGerald Associates working on the design. This first phase will rise on the eastern end of the site, with a 44-vehicle parking lot occupying most of this half of the property.

The building will contain 110 condominiums made up of studios, one-, and two-bedroom layouts for ages 62 and older, a growing demographic in the area. Due to this, the interiors are being designed with slight modifications like wider hallways and doors as well as grab bars in public areas.

The L-shaped structure will be clad in a mix of storefront windows, metal panels, gray, red, and charcoal brick, as well as cast stone detailing. The building will also be relatively environmentally friendly with an electric vehicle charging station, and Energy Star rating per the Chicago Sustainable Development Policy via its mechanical systems.

Eventually, the building will be joined by a second phase with a 72-vehicle parking lot and similar height building, inside will most likely be an additional 100 units. With many of the building’s units already sold and permits in hand, construction can now commence with MPI Contracting set to complete the project.
