As the upcoming seven-story transit-oriented apartment development at the intersection of Chicago’s Milwaukee and Armitage avenues prepares to welcome its first residents, the project’s developers have released new renderings, unit pricing information, and its official name: A.M. 1980.

Under construction since last summer, the 110,000-square-foot building comes from Clayco’s CRG private real estate development branch with its subsidiary BatesForum (formerly Forum Studio), serving as architect. The design preserves and reincorporates the facade of demolished 1907 Weyland Building into its exterior.

Although A.M. 1980 is located west of Western Avenue in an area most people would consider Logan Square, its developers are hyping its proximity to Bucktown as a main selling point.

“Bucktown is one of Chicago’s creative epicenters with a thriving nightlife, live music, restaurants, and art galleries,” said CRG Multifamily Director Brittani Sanders in an email to Curbed Chicago. “Located less than 500 feet from the Blue Line CTA station, residents will also enjoy easy access to The 606, downtown, and O’Hare International Airport.”

A.M. 1980 will contain approximately 132 units, 6,000 square feet of retail space, and only 16 parking spaces. Residential amenities include a fitness center, coffee bar, lounge, dog run, landscaped roof deck, and a lobby with live CTA bus and train trackers.

Based on a list of available units on the project’s recently launched website, rents start around $1,600 per month for 500-square-foot studios and top out around $3,400 for the largest 1,200-square-foot two-bedroom apartments. Resident move-ins are expected to begin later this summer.
