Construction is nearly complete at 1515-1517 W. Haddon. Wicker Park Lofts will be a 40 unit building with our office, 4 Studios, 24 One Bedrooms, 8 Two Bedrooms and, 4 Three Bedroom apartments.
We are constructing a soft loft rental apartment building that will be a six-story structure that takes advantage of the property’s unique shape. Studios, one, two and three bedroom units will feature top-of-the-line finishes and state-of-the-art design elements and the fourth, fifth and six floors will have breathtaking city views. The property is only 570’ from the blueline stop at Ashland and Division, multiple bus lines, and the Milwaukee Avenue bike lanes. The development is the very first transit-oriented development that went before the City’s Plan Commission and received approval this last April pursuant to Chicago’s new TOD Zoning Ordinance which rewards building less parking and other sustainable design elements with additional density and is only available for developments that are in close proximity to public transportation. Reduced parking is provided along with a large bike room, a package delivery and dry cleaning drop-off & pick-up room, and a recycling room on the first floor along with a loading berth for move-ins and move-outs and our office.
The building has been designed with green building standards and is seeking LEED Gold Certification. Sustainable elements include a green roof, EV charging stations, energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems, energy-efficient thermal and sound insulation systems, the use of recycled building materials and a large solar panel installation on the roof. The project architect is David Brininstool of Brininstool+Lynch who is known for his modern yet sensible designs and has designed numerous multifamily buildings in Chicago.
