An official opening ceremony has been held for the new mixed-use development at 2602 N Emmett Street in Logan Square. Located on the intersection with W Kedzie Avenue, the completed project replaced a vacant parking lot adjacent to the CTA Blue Line Logan Square station. Becoming the first Equitable Transit Oriented Development (ETOD) in the city, it was developed by local non-profit Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation who operates now over 2,000 affordable units across the city. Their team partnered with Chicago-based Landon Bone Baker Architects who are well known for their work on multiple affordable buildings as well.
2602-38 N Emmett Street
Final touches are in progress for Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation’s Emmett Street Apartments, situated at 2602-38 N Emmett Street in Logan Square. With a reported construction price tag of $40 million, the seven-story edifice provides 4,300 square feet of retail, along with 100 affordable units on the upper floors. Of these units, half will be available to Section 8 Chicago Housing Authority voucher holders, while the remaining are available via the application process.
Exterior work is approaching completion for the seven-story Emmett Street Apartments at 2602-38 N Emmett Street in Logan Square. Previously occupied by a parking lot, the nearly one-acre parcel is bordered by N Emmett Street, N Kedzie Avenue, the CTA L Blue Line at Logan Square station, a rear alley, and four-story residential building.
