This 5-story residential building is in an area that is currently undergoing a transformation with multiple new developments. The exposure of the site at a prime intersection provided the opportunity to develop a striking façade design. Stainless steel panels clad the sawtooth design in a contemporary and contextual application, allowing for a different architectural experience as one passes the building.

The building contains 47 rental units, ground floor retail space and parking. A community room and shared amenity terrace are located to take advantage of views to downtown. Close proximity to public transportation allowed the parking count to be reduced by 50% by taking advantage of guidelines for Transit Oriented Design as outlined in the current Chicago Zoning Ordinance.
