The developer Clayco has just unveiled a refreshed design for a proposed transit-oriented development for the southeast corner of Sheridan and Wilson. According to Alderman James Cappleman (46th), the changes to the tower proposal’s design come after taking feedback from the Department of Planning & Development and the community group Uptown United into consideration.
The proposal ditches the blocky multi-color facade previously proposed for a straight glass and masonry design from the architects at Forum Studio. The redesigned tower proposal also returns with an increase in height, going from eight stories to 12 total levels. While the tower has grown in height, the total unit count of 147 apartments hasn’t changed, however the amount of ground-level retail space has been reduced from 7,000 square feet to 5,500 square feet. Parking has been bumped slightly from the 29 spaces originally planned up to 38 spaces.
Uptown residents will be able to get a better, more detailed look at the apartment tower proposal at a community meeting taking place next Monday, February 27 at Weiss Memorial Hospital (4646 N. Marine Drive) starting at 7:00 p.m.
