Transit-Oriented Residential Development
Leading a Planned Development approach with the local municipality in order to acquire necessary zoning approvals, Myefski Architects is crafting an innovative design for a new 86,400 sf multi-family residential development. The development’s prominent location, surrounded by a retail district and Northwestern University along with its close proximity to public transportation, made the site ideal for transit-oriented apartments.
The 47-unit development, with condo-level finishes, encompasses four-stories with an underground parking garage and is designed with a modern feel that embraces clean lines articulated with punched volumes. The exterior showcases classic, timeless patterns of mixed materials such as brick masonry and metal paneling that are in keeping with the scale and character of the neighborhood.
The building houses a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units that average 1,200 sf and come standard with walk-in closets, balcony, and laundry.
Pursuing LEED® Silver status, sustainable elements integral to the design include an extensive green roof, common areas powered by solar energy, low-flow fixtures, low-voc paint, and the use of recycled materials.
