The project, located at 1421-1439 W. Adams Boulevard, consists of a five-story building that will feature 46 studio, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 3,600 square feet of ground-floor retail and a two-level, 70-car subterranean parking garage.

In exchange for development incentives obtained using the Transit Oriented Communities guidelines, Orion Capital is required to set aside five of the apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing.

Designed by Next Architecture the project will feature an exterior of plaster, cement, and brick veneer, with upper-level setbacks to create amenity decks for residents.
