The residential conversion of the historic Motley Elementary School, a 4-story masonry building on Chicago’s near West Side, includes the conversion into 34 residential apartments with attached interior parking, a new roof terrace, and elevator providing service to each level. To comply with historic Federal Tax Credit requirements, the project retains its Renaissance Revival masonry details in traditional red pressed-brick, limestone, and pressed metal. Ornate cast iron stairs, raised panel wood doors and portals, bead-board wainscott, first growth hardwood floors, glass transoms and cabinetry are among the many other materials and character defining original features retained and integrated into the completed project.
