Creative office space and more retail coming to Clybourn corridor
CHICAGO – Chicago general contractor, Summit Design + Build, LLC, recently began work at 2300 N. Clybourn, a new office and retail development. Developer R.A. Zweig Inc. owned the site and its former retail building and purchased the neighboring lot to expand the new building’s footprint. The former retail building, which had sat vacant for over four years, was demolished in early summer of 2017 to make way for the new addition to the Clybourn corridor.
Originally proposed as a 10-story retail and apartment building in 2016, the project and design team returned with the current, scaled back two-story scheme after community opposition. Once completed, the building will total 15,000-square feet and combine first floor retail with second floor creative office space. The design features a masonry and steel structure with a unique dual metal panel and rain screen system on the front façade as well as new storefront with custom lighting. The project also includes site work for 18 parking spots, new landscaping, ornamental fencing and new monument signage. The site sits near the intersection of Ashland, Clybourn and Fullerton, and is bordered on two sides by the Salvation Army parking lot and drive way.
Currently no tenants have been named, but the space allows for up to five retail tenants and seven office tenants, with hopes for a single-use tenant. The project is expecting a delivery of December 2018, following delays due to zoning issues.
Amstadter Architects are serving as the project architect.
