Drones seem to be changing the way we look at things, even in Architecture. These renderings of our Irving and Avondale project were superimposed on drone taken aerial photography, giving a whole new perspective to our transit oriented design.

Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) have been all over the news and debated in community meetings throughout the north side. This is a good article on the subject with some actual data. It has a photo of our 3400 N. Lincoln project in the article. Unfortunately, they used an old photo of an older design, but we'll still take it as a complement that they used our design to make their point.

Now that it's official and a lease has been signed we can announce that Target will be the tenant for the first and second floors at 3200 N. Clark. They will be opening a Target Express. This is great for the community and a perfect fit for our building. Now we just need to get the building permit and finalize the construction contract.....

We are posting a few rendered views of the Fields, the former Marshall Field's / Macy's warehouse at 4000 West Diversey. Our clients are turning the former furniture warehouse into a vibrant mixed-use retail, live-work, and office development complete with indoor parking, a restaurant, grocery store and banquet facility. These renderings were developed for their use at the ICSC (International Council of Shopping Centers) convention going on now in Las Vegas, trying to find additional retail tenants to join Cermak Foods, slated to open this fall. We are currently in for permit for the indoor parking and ramp work.

It has been a few years since we completed the facade renovation of the Diversey and Sheffield Building but we finally had it photographed. The existing two-story building on a prime corner next to the "L" had a facade of white glazed brick which was failing. In addition the metal cornices had rotted out. While taking cues from the original building design, the existing masonry was peeled off and replaced with new brick and stone to give the building a fresh new image and provide identity to the second floor tenant.

Roosevelt Collection is perhaps, the poster child for the ups and downs in real-estate development. We started working on this project in 2005, Master Planning a new kind of mixed-use urban development. We teamed with RTKL and later Epstein to finalize the design , get all the approvals and complete the permit drawings. The project started construction in 2007, just before the crash, the last major project to receive bank financing. But that is also when everything started to unravel. Ultimately, Centrum Partners had to sell the project at a loss, McCaffery Interests took a risk in buying and completing the project and is now reaping the rewards. This article gives a good description of how even the best of plans, and projects, can go south sometimes. http://buff.ly/1K0UzrN

Our 12-story, 101 unit Transit Oriented Development in Evanston was approved by a 6-1 vote at the City Council Monday night, This culminated a more than a year long effort on the part of our team. Great work everyone. This is a truly unique site in Evanston and a perfect example of how out-of-the-box thinking can help overcome significant obstacles.
