A new lifestyle hub has opened at 839 W 79th Street in Auburn Gresham after many years of work and community outreach. Located just west of the intersection with S Halsted Street, the new project revitalized an abandoned existing commercial building that was once home to a department store. Led by the Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation, it was originally introduced in 2020 with local firm McBride Kelley Baurer (MKB) responsible for the design of the development.

Located at 331 S Plymouth Court, the project site consists of a city-owned parking garage and a series of smaller parcels on the western edge of Pritzker Park. Bound by S Plymouth Court and W Van Buren Street, the rectangular parcel also has an alley running through that will be vacated.

Located along W 79th Street, the building sits on an interior lot between S Green Street and S Peoria Street.
