After presenting a 12-story, 34-unit condominium tower for a Fifth Third Bank parking lot at 1220 N. Bosworth Avenue last summer, developer Rob Buono of Henry Street Partners is back with a new plan calling for 23 townhouse units. Buono, who was also behind Logan Square’s controversial MiCa towers and the transit-oriented apartments at nearby 1611 W. Division, has retained Chicago-based Wheeler Kearns Architects to design the modern homes which will be priced between about $1 million and $1.2 million.

Located just steps from the Polish Triangle at the edge of Wicker Park and Noble Square, the development will feature a distinctively modern facade consisting primarily of architectural concrete and corrugated metal. Each home will also feature an elevated rear yard situated above the project’s single-story parking garage. According to a recent report by Crain’s, construction has been tentatively set for this fall with delivery expected in either late 2018 or early 2019.
