Urbanize recently toured Portrait, a new mixed-use development in Uptown that has opened to residents. Located at the corner of N. Sheridan Rd and W. Sunnyside Ave, the five-story building has been developed by Mavrek Development. Designed by NORR, the building will deliver 59 residential units and 7,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.
Touring with Mavrek Development and the leasing team from Peak Realty Chicago, we began by walking through the ground floor of the building. Residents enter through the lobby on W. Sunnyside Ave, which opens up to the building’s coworking amenity space that offers residents meeting rooms and space to work from home. Behind the coworking space is a large fitness center as an additional amenity.
Heading up to see units, we began with a model unit on the third floor. Offering a mix of studios, junior one-beds, one-beds, and two-bedroom configurations, all of the units have private balconies and designated office nooks designed into each floor plan.
The building had its first move-ins on June 1st and is already 60% leased. Studios start at $1,693/month, junior one-beds begin at $1,816/month, one-beds start at $1,929/month, and two-bedroom units start at $2,940/month.
We finished the tour by walking through the surface parking behind the building. With 36 parking spaces provided, the development team enlivened the parking area by having a local artist paint murals on the walls.
Mavrek is still in conversation with retailers regarding the lease out of the 7,000 square feet of ground floor retail space that wraps the street facades of the building.
