Thrush Development

100 Units
112 Parking Spaces
167,000 GSF

Located in Chicago’s West Loop, the award-winning community development comprises 100 residential units organized within five separate buildings, around a large, lavishly landscaped courtyard that sits atop an underground parking garage. The project responds to its industrial context through its position on the edge of the sidewalk and use of red brick, limestone, steel detailing, and large areas of glazing. Fenestration changes, terraces and balconies and extensive landscaping invigorate the facades and contribute to the unique dynamic of the complex. This contextual envelope is eroded away on the courtyard side to reveal a richly detailed structural framework and bolder, more playful color and form.
