A whole slew of nearly 50 brand new single family homes are coming to Milwaukee Avenue in Old Irving Park as developer Ranquist Development Group gears up to dig in on its new Basecamp Old Irving Park project. No stranger to row home development, Ranquist has built dozens of row homes in Logan Square and in River North, near the former Cabrini-Green site. Demand for new single family homes is strong, and Ranquist's previous projects have no problems lining up buyers, often selling out well before delivery.
For their new Northwest Side project, Ranquist has teamed up with developer Stocking Urban LLC and architects Pappageorge Haymes Partners. While proposals for tall, dense buildings can spark long, dramatic neighborhood battles, new single family home developments tend to have the opposite effect on discerning residents. Units will feature a simple, understated exterior with contemporary finishes on the inside and each home will have a private two car garage. Homes will start at a very reasonable $479,900 with the first deliveries expected next summer.
