The project involves the complete redevelopment of an entire city block in the Cottage Grove Corridor of Chicago, encompassing a large mixed-use building on the key corner, three new 3-story infill residential buildings, and the redevelopment of a 3-story condo building. The main building includes a 41,000 square foot Walmart Neighborhood Market and 14,000 square feet of neighborhood convenience retail space on the ground floor, parking on the second floor, and mixed-income apartments on the upper three levels. The building embraces the busy urban intersection flanking both Cottage Grove and 47th Street, with parking and secondary entrances accessed from the courtyard side of the building. The facade is enlivened with a combination of cast stone, brick, glass and metal panels, creating a contemporary composition while maintaining the scale and rhythm of the existing neighborhood.
