A 55-unit condo development known as Alcove Wicker Park is officially underway near the Polish Triangle and Division Blue Line station. Set back from the street between Division Street and Milwaukee Avenue, the project includes a seven-story, 43-unit condominium building and 12 townhomes accessed by landscaped walkways.

Alcove comes from Vermilion Development and Hirsch MPG Architecture and sports a contemporary design with brick and metal facades. Each unit offers its a private balcony or deck as well as access to a shared rooftop terrace with views of downtown Chicago.

Two- to four-bedroom units in the condo building start around $600,00 while the three- to four-bedroom townhouse units cost $1.1 million and up. Vermilion hopes to welcome residents between summer and fall 2020.

“Alcove is a rare opportunity to own new construction in an elevator building in this neighborhood, and is one of the best new-home values on the North Side,” said @properties broker Carrie McCormick in a statement. More information is available on the development’s website and sales center at 1295 N. Milwaukee Avenue.

As Alcove breaks ground, the wedge-shaped block bordered by Milwaukee, Division, and Paulina is poised to get even more crowded. The new development joins recent projects such as the four-story condo building at 1624 W. Division and the 15-story rental tower known as Wicker Park Connection. Meanwhile, a 16-story apartment building is still in the works for nearby 1628 W. Division Street.
