Project Description:

This is a new 207 unit affordable single room occupancy apartment building in the fast developing South Loop area of Chicago.

The ground floor has managerial offices, counseling offices and a career development center; eight floors of housing above are arranged around a "U" shaped court with views to Lake Michigan.

Designed as a Chicago building with a timeless quality, the building has a masonry fašade composed with proportioned brick banding, stone detailing and a corbelled brick and stone cornice.

Large stone elements define the entry and deep masonry openings give the building a quiet strength.
