On the Boards: Wicker Park

A unique lot in the Wicker Park neighborhood is the site of a new multi-family residential project. Brininstool + Lynch designed the six-story, 44-unit building in response to the constraints of the lot and with the surrounding context in mind. The building is lifted above the street to provide parking and commercial space on the ground floor. The penthouse residence takes advantage of spectacular panoramic views of the city. It is the first project in Chicago to follow new zoning regulations for Transit-Served Locations, and construction is slated to begin in early 2014.
