Final facade work is now underway for a six-story residential building at 2700 N Sheffield Avenue in Lincoln Park. Known as “Sheffield of Lincoln Park,” the project is part of a broader renovation plan by Pihrl and the Chicago Housing Authority to renovate the Edith Spurlock Apartment complex, whose two existing buildings were originally built in the 1960s. Set to replace a parking lot between the pair of structures, the new 85-foot-tall edifice will house 80 residences to bring the complex’s total up to 485 units.
Facade work is progressing rapidly for a five-story mixed-use building known as The Porter, located at 2411 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. The scheme by Mike Breheny involves 3,700 square feet of retail, a 1,700-square-foot covered patio, and 36 for-rent apartments above. Previously, the privately-owned Julia Porter Park was in its place.
