As first reported by our friends at ChicagoArchitecture.org, the new 34-story high-rise at 833 N. Clark is now officially underway, marking the beginning of two residential high-rises that are set to begin construction sometime during the month of June.
Obligated to incorporate the historic Georgian Revival style bank building that sits on the site as part of an agreement made with the city to revive this landmark-status structure, 833 North Clark is a pretty unique project that, when finished, will have eliminated yet another surface parking lot in the city, providing even more residential retail and residential space in one of the hottest neighborhoods in the entire city.
In all, the new 833 N. Clark development will stand 380 feet high, house 392 apartment residences, nearly 27,000 square feet of retail space (within the existing bank structure), and include 159 on-site parking spaces.
The project also calls for 50 bicycle parking spaces, as well as a 14,760 square foot green roof, which continues to be a very popular trend among new developments in Chicago. Given its still VERY early in the construction and development process, no official completion date has been give, although the banner on the project’s site says 833 N. Clark should be finished sometime in early 2017.
