Structured Development has received a full building permit for the final tower at The Shops at Big Deahl, a multiphase mixed-use development. The three-building, 487-unit community is centered around a new public park on the larger site that is bound by W. Blackhawk, N. Dayton, and N. Kingsbury Streets. The multi-phase plan has already produced the new structure at 1460 N. Dayton Street which holds a climbing gym. Located at 1475 N. Kingsbury St, the expected 27-story tower has previously received foundation permits and a tower crane permit.
With a master plan by GREC Architects, the new tower will be designed by FitzGerald Associates Architects, according to permit filings. The building is expected to rise 299 feet, delivering 327 market-rate rental apartments. At the ground floor, the building will front the intersection with retail space, while space for 142 cars will be included in the building.
Structured Development is meeting its 20% affordable housing requirement in part through The Seng, an adjacent for-sale condominium building on the site, while also supporting Fain’s Development with their Harrison Row Townhomes located in East Garfield Park, producing 40 affordable for-sale townhomes.
Seng Park, named after The Seng Company, a furniture manufacturing firm whose facility used to occupy the site, will be fully landscaped and provide community gardens, a dog park and playground. Seng Park also will provide a link to the Wild Mile, a recently revitalized stretch of the North Branch Canal, furthering the live-work-play lifestyle sought by today’s urban dwellers.
With the full building permit issued, general contractor Power Construction can continue work through completion. Delivery on the final tower is expected for Fall 2023 which was standing just above the ground floor when Urbanize toured the site in June.
