This enclave of forty eight new homes provided the unique opportunity to create not just a new building, but a whole new neighborhood. Located along Milwaukee Avenue, adjacent to Old Irving Park and in close proximity to public transit, the homes are arranged to create a sense of community and promote pride of ownership. A tree-lined street and sidewalks curve through the site alongside a centrally located park, promoting a pedestrian friendly experience. The individual lots feature landscaped yards, wide and welcoming front porches, and two car detached garages largely accessed via alleys. The design of the individual homes reinterpret the traditional image of a house, with traditional peaked roof forms and comfortably scaled windows taking cues from modern influences and detailing. The designs utilize a sophisticated neutral color palette, lending to the refined and crisp appearance. Within each home, the floor plans also take cues from modern lifestyles, with an open, loft like first floor and ample natural light. The layouts cater to the modern urban family, including three bedrooms located on the second floor a finished lower level with a family room and a spare bedroom.
