Urbanize recently toured the newly completed Platform 4611 in Uptown. Located at the corner of W. Wilson Ave. and N. Broadway, the 200-unit project is being developed by The John Buck Company with McHugh Construction leading construction. Rising 103 feet, the nine-story project’s design comes from Pappageorge Haymes.
Our tour began in the residential lobby which fronts N. Broadway. With seating and the reception desk framed with wood accents, the leasing offices are to the side closed off with a glass wall. Behind the lobby, residents can access the elevator lobby to the right and the mailroom is located off to the left.
Heading to the top floor, the ninth level holds four three-bedroom apartments at the back of the building, with residential amenities facing south overlooking N. Broadway. Coming off of the elevator, residents will have access to a business center that offers private and collaborative workspaces looking over the street. Private meeting rooms can be reserved by residents for their use. A fitness center is located across the hall.
Moving to the south side of the floor, tenants have a large resident lounge and media room that includes seating and a demonstration bar and kitchen. Facing an outdoor terrace, the resident lounge will open to an outdoor deck with a folding Nana wall. The outdoor space will have grills and fireplaces with sweeping views of the city to the south and the lakefront to the east.
Heading down to the third floor, our next stop was a studio model unit. Facing N. Broadway, the unit has the kitchen along one wall with the bed and living space combined. Residential units all have 9-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows to bring in lots of natural light.
Heading back down to the ground floor, residents will have a bike room at the back of the building as well as a surface parking lot for 22 cars. Retail spaces will occupy the rest of the ground floor along N. Broadway and W. Wilson Ave, split into 4 distinct areas. The John Buck Company has an executed lease with Stan’s Donuts for the corner space, with the company in discussion with other retailers for the remaining square footage.
With the building already open to residents, move-ins began back in February. With the building 20% leased, those interested in the building can visit https://www.platform4611.com/ to see current availability.
