Proposed Project Overview

Wicker Park Apartments Inc. is in for a building permit for 710 W. Grand Ave.  Wicker Park Apartments Inc. has completed over $350M in developments including high-rise, mid-rise and low-rise apartments, condos, townhomes and single family homes in Chicago and currently owns and operates 31 apartment buildings they have renovated in the Wicker Park, Noble Square, East Village and Ukrainian Village Neighborhoods including a Transit Oriented Development under construction at 1515 W. Haddon (www.WickerParkLofts.com).  710 W. Grand is an ideal location within walking and biking distance of the Loop, the West Loop, the proposed project will enliven Grand Avenue and help make the surrounding neighborhood become more active, safe, secure and attractive.

710 Grand will be a new 105-unit rental apartment building in a 9 story structure.  Studios, one, and two bedroom units will feature top-of-the-line finishes and state-of-the-art design elements and the units will have beautiful city views.  The property is only 315’ away from the blueline stop at Grand and Halsted, multiple bus lines and the Milwaukee Avenue bike lanes.  This will be a transit-oriented development under the City’s TOD Zoning Ordinance, which encourages less parking and other sustainable design elements.  With alternative forms of transit nearby, additional car traffic will be minimized.  A large active retail space, a large bike room, a package delivery and dry cleaning drop-off/pick-up room, and a recycling room along with a loading berth for move-ins and move-outs will be located on the first floor along with parking for 45 cars.  Floors 2-8 will have apartments and there will be also be a roof deck along with building amenities on a smaller floor plate on the 9th floor.

Upon completion, the project will generate in excess of $250,000 in real estate taxes annually, is not seeking public subsidies, or TIF support and will create numerous temporary construction jobs in addition to permanent jobs in the retail space.  The building is being designed with green building standards and will seek LEED Silver certification at a minimum and will strive for Gold certification.  Sustainable design elements include a green roof, EV charging stations, energy efficient lighting and mechanical systems, energy efficient sound and thermal insulation systems, the use of recycled building materials and also the use of solar panels on the roof to generate power.
