McShane Construction Company and their joint venture partner, Ashlaur Construction, were selected by repeat clients Brinshore Development and The Michaels Organization to build Phase IID of Westhaven Park. Located on Chicago’s Near West Side, the 12-story development will integrate 96 mixed-income apartment units with ground-floor retail space. McShane built a 113-unit condominium building during the first phase of Westhaven Park in 2006.
“We’re proud to begin work on the next phase of Westhaven Park,” commented David Rintz, Regional Vice President – Multi-Family at McShane. “Not only will it provide much-needed affordable housing in the city of Chicago, but it will also provide jobs and bring commerce to the community.”
The precast concrete building will incorporate a total of 121,800 square feet. Three retail spaces will occupy the ground floor with residential units on floors two through 12.
Units will feature quartz kitchen countertops, luxury vinyl plank flooring, stainless steel appliances, and in-unit washers and dryers. Floorplans will be offered in one- and two-bedroom layouts. Sixty-six percent of units will be affordable, and 34 percent will be market rate.
Amenities will include a fitness center, community room, and rooftop terrace. Additionally, the site is positioned adjacent to the new CTA Green Line station under construction at Lake Street and Damen Avenue, which will make it easily accessible via public transportation.
LBBA is providing architectural services for Westhaven Park IID. Completion of the residence is expected for September 2024.
This is McShane’s second project partnering with Ashlaur Construction, one of Chicago’s premier Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) construction firms. Currently, the joint venture team is also building The Foglia Residences, an affordable, supportive housing development for the blind community in Chicago on behalf of Brinshore.
