Dear Community Neighbors,
Last October, we presented our redesigned project. The changes resulted in a shorter and smaller building with an improved pedestrian experience, less retail space, improved parking, and off-street taxi and car drop-off. These changes were the result of input received from our community meetings, meetings with nearby condominium owners and associations, and community organizations. We are grateful to everyone who provided feedback.
Since that time, we’ve worked to further refine the project design based on reviews and comments from the City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development. The refinements further improve the pedestrian experience at State and Elm, reconfigure the stepped massing of the building to lower the southern elevation and sculpt the top of the building to provide a more elegant profile. Our third Community Meeting will be held on June 23 to present these refinements.
This site provides highlights of the project and includes detailed answers to your most frequently asked questions below. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact us.
1130 N. State Street
ELEGANT DESIGN + UPSCALE LIVING
At the ground level, smaller, welcoming neighborhood retail experiences will capture the neighborhood feel of the Gold Coast. A neighborhood favorite, Lou Malnati's, will remain in place.
1130 N. State Street is a mixed-use development with modern, upscale residences and approachable dining and shopping options. The project is designed to complement the architecture and feel of the Gold Coast neighborhood.
