A former office building will soon be transformed into apartments, as part of a conversion project involving the old Hartman Building. Located at 30 E Adams Street, the building dates back to the mid 1920s, and is well known for housing Miler’s Pub on its ground level.
The city just approved a permit allowing the developer to start work on the project. The conversion involves transforming the building into more than 170 rentals. It’s projected the cozy units will each occupy around 500 square feet.
Along with the residential units, reports suggest that amenity space will be added to the building’s 13th and 14th floors. As well, a new elevator penthouse will join the 15th floor of the building.
The conversion project is just one of a number of projects currently underway in the area, converting old office buildings into new residential space. Renovation of the Hartman Building is expected to take up to a year and a half to complete.
