The six-story mixed-use project represents one of the four buildings within the Roosevelt Square Phase 3B development, which will include new mixed-income residences, retail, and the new National Museum of Public Housing. Roosevelt Square as a whole is set to provide 2,441 total units, taking on the form of both multifamily and single-family buildings.
The mixed-use development at 741 N Wells Street in River North is edging closer towards exterior completion, with installation of the curtain wall now on the final floor.
