The new mixed-use redevelopment project, located in the heart of Chicago’s popular Bronzeville neighborhood, offers a mix of affordable and market rate housing, street level retail, and lushly landscaped public spaces. The buildings are articulated using a variety of colored brick and cast stone materials, and with both historic and modern fenestration details. This rich, mixed vocabulary results in a streetscape that appears to have evolved over time. The plaza and park spaces between the two buildings form the centerpiece of the development and serve as a place to host public gatherings, farmer’s markets, and other community events, as well as provide space for outdoor retail dining. Apartments are configured in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom plans with access to fully featured building amenities, including; a large community room, a fitness and yoga room, and a shared work center.
