Terracotta-clad TOD ready to rise near Grand Avenue Blue Line stop

New, 4 comments

Designed by Chicago’s Brininstool+Lynch, 710 W. Grand melds modern design with traditional facade materials

Located just steps from the Blue Line and the recently-opened Kenect apartments, a new transit-oriented development (TOD) is ready to rise at 710 W. Grand in Chicago’s Fulton River District. According to a newly-issued building permit, the upcoming nine-story structure from developer Wicker Park Apartments will include 104 dwelling units, new ground floor retail, and storage for 46 cars and 80 bikes.

Resembling two rectangular boxes joined at a 30-degree angle, the Brininstool+Lynch-designed project features modern glass and metal facades at each end with sides covered in honest-to-goodness Terracotta. An older—though not particularly remarkable—four-story building and small accompanying surface lot bit the dust to make way for the project earlier this year.
