River West apartment plan looks to increase unit count, add public park

New, 5 comments

The developers of 716 N. Aberdeen are looking to add two additional floors, more rental units, and public green space

An upcoming apartment development for southeast corner of Aberdeen and Ogden in Chicago’s River West neighborhood is going back to the city in hopes of increasing both height and unit count. Based on a recently filed application, the previously approved project would grow from 11 stories and 175 apartments to 13 stories and 188 dwellings. Replacing a couple of parking lots and a windowless single-story building, the project would also add a triangle-shaped public park and dog run at the eastern corner of the property.

The brick, glass, and concrete structure comes from developers John Kelly/RMK Management and was designed by Chicago’s FitzGerald Associates Architects. Located just steps from the Chicago Avenue Blue Line stop and a massive mixed-use development under construction at the old Gonnella Bread factory site, 716 N. Aberdeen will feature parking for 42 bicycles and 84 motor vehicles.
