The development is comprised of five buildings: a large mixed-use building on the key corner, three new 3-story infill residential buildings, and the redevelopment of a 3-story condo building. The main building includes a 41,000 square foot Walmart Neighborhood Market and 14,000 square feet of neighborhood convenience retail space on the ground floor, parking on the second floor, and mixed-income apartments on the upper three levels. Rental apartments on the upper three levels encompass an income spectrum from public housing to unrestricted market-rate units. The buildings on Evans and 48th Street include an additional 24 mixed-income rental units. The building embraces the busy urban intersection flanking both Cottage Grove and 47th Street, with parking and secondary entrances accessed from the courtyard side of the building. The facade is enlivened with a combination of cast stone, brick, glass, and metal panels, creating a contemporary composition while maintaining the scale and rhythm of the existing neighborhood.
