A full building permit has been issued for 1257 W. Roosevelt. Planned as part of the Roosevelt Square Phase 3B development, the new building will rise at the southeast corner of W. Roosevelt Rd and S. Throop St. Related Midwest is the developer behind the building and the wider plan, partnering with the Chicago Housing Authority.
With DesignBridge in charge of the architecture, the new building is set to rise six floors, delivering 70 residential units. The unit breakdown includes 29 CHA apartments at 20-60% AMI, 20 low-income units at 60-80% AMI, and 21 market-rate residences. 40 parking spaces will be included, with 18 of them located indoors on the ground floor and the remaining 22 located outdoors behind the building.
The design aims to deliver a modern aesthetic with a facade pattern that breaks up the length of the structure. The ground floor will hold the residential lobby at the corner of W. Roosevelt Rd and S. Throop St. Amenities will include a fitness center, a dog run, and outdoor amenity space.
With the building permit issued, general contractor Bowa Construction can begin work on the new residential building. A timeline for completion has not been announced.
