A new four-story condo development is ready to replace the low-slung Jeron Electronics building at the corner of Rosehill and Hermitage in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Designed by architecture firm Sullivan, Goulette & Wilson, the newly-permitted project will feature 39 dwellings and 47 parking spaces in its ground floor garage. Located in a primarily residential area—but also not far from the Edgewater Medical Center redevelopment site—the new building will forgo a retail component.
While speaking with DNAinfo in December, Alan Candea of Candea Developments described the project as a sort of “middle class” alternative to area’s pricier $1 million single family homes. Though unit pricing has yet to be announced, condos in the new development are expected to feature floor plans ranging from two to five bedrooms. With construction now cleared to begin, 1743 W. Rosehill will reportedly take “three years or less” to complete.
