4.75 acres (site)
|This mixed-use neighborhood
development provides commercial
space and 142 dwelling units
arranged around a new street and
vest-pocket park. Established
via its master plan to reconnect
an abandoned industrial site to
the surrounding neighborhood,
the intimate development utilizes
common Evanston housing types
- 3 flats, 6 flats, town homes and
a condominium building - rendered
in a fresh contemporary aesthetic.
Various passive and active energy responses, including geothermal heating and cooling, green roofscapes, solar thermal panels, interior daylighting, and stormwater management promote an advanced “green” design. Each structure will be LEED certified, with most units achieving a Silver rating. The development will provide Evanston with a new standard in walkable and sustainable transit-oriented development and its master plan will fulfill LEED-ND requirements.
