This new development in Chicago's West Loop proposes improvements to two existing 3 and 4-story buildings for continued use as office space and retail, and the development of a vacant lot in the middle of these two buildings into a 19-story residential apartment tower. The building will include 288 residential units with 20% affordable on site. This new mixed-use development is intended to work in connection with the existing office buildings and will include shared parking and access to modern amenities such as bicycle room, fitness, showers, and sky lounge.
The building's massing is composed of a 4-story base filling the vacant lot, a middle section tower that is setback from the base facade along Washington Blvd. The top floors also set back further providing active roof-top uses and outdoor decks for occupant use. The building's base is designed to respect the local character with a contemporary expression utilizing a mix of traditional materials, brick, and metal.
