What’s not immediately apparent is that the project is not new ground-up construction, rather a redesign and repurposing of a stalled pre-recession mixed-use structure.

Map

This seven story condominium tower in the River North district of Chicago completed construction in summer of 2014. There are six residential units, each approximately 2000sf, above a ground floor accommodating parking, lobby and building services.

Clean lines and an industrial palette of materials give 747 N Clark an authentic, urban feel. In line with the modernist roots of Chicago’s architectural heritage, steel and glass are the principle facade materials. A charred oak entry door leads occupants past the garage clad in hot-rolled steel plate.

What’s not immediately apparent is that the project is not new ground-up construction, rather a redesign and repurposing of a stalled pre-recession mixed-use structure. The original developer was forced to abandon the project just after topping out the steel frame, where upon the project stood vacant for a number of years. Ranquist development saw the potential of the structure and neighborhood and acquired the project in the spring of 2013.
