To meet the ARO requirement of 20% affordable units, Sterling Bay will provide 28 units (10%) on-site with a unit mix of 9 convertibles, 6 studios, 8 one-beds, 4 two-beds, and 1 three-bedroom unit. A fee paid in lieu of the remaining units will total $5.26 million and will be directed to the SL Solar Lofts at 2548 S Federal Street in the South Loop.
