Developers behind the new apartment and retail project at 710 W. Grand Avenue in the River West neighborhood are working to get the new building completed and opened by early next year, but in the meanwhile, the team behind the eight-story transit-oriented development has offered new details on the upcoming project.
Like every trendy new luxury development, this one needed a name. According to the development team, this new development has been formally dubbed Seven 10 West. And similar to other transit-oriented developments along the Milwaukee Avenue Corridor, this project’s design comes from the firm Brininstool + Lynch.
With a location near the Grand Avenue Blue Line, this one features a reduced parking ratio via the city’s transit-oriented development ordinance. The under-construction building will eventually deliver 105 new apartments with 42 vehicle parking spaces when it is completed early next year. In addition, Seven 10 West will also feature 5,400 square feet of ground-level retail space fronting Grand Avenue.
However, unlike other new apartment developments with a Brininstool + Lynch design along Milwaukee Avenue, this one appears to be skipping the gimmicky amenities and instead is going with a straight upscale approach. Instead of opting for a repurposed ‘L’ car as a common space or planting a bocce court on the rooftop, Seven 10 West’s rooftop deck will feature items more typically found at new rental offerings, such as fire pits, gas grills, and a private dog run.
According to the team behind the development, pre-leasing is expected to begin in December with the first move-ins anticipated for February 2018. In terms of pricing, the details have not been made public just yet, but taking a look at the rents that other new apartment and retail developments along Milwaukee Avenue are asking should certainly offer a clue.
