Lake and Aberdeen Coming to Lake and Aberdeen

Drawing of Lake and Aberdeen

As more and more people eager to live in downtown Chicago, or near downtown Chicago, or within transit distance of downtown Chicago, rush toward the low-numbers of the 606 ZIP codes, an increasing number of vacant lots and underused spaces are turning into swank new residential buildings.

The latest proposal is the unimaginatively-named Lake and Aberdeen, planned for 1051 West Lake Street. Paperwork was filed with the city today for the building that has the misfortune of being hard against the CTA Pink and Green Line lines, but also has the fortune of being just two blocks from the CTA Morgan Street station.

Here are the details:

  • Address: 1051 West Lake Street
  • Developer: Lake Acquisitions LLC/MCZ Development
  • Architecture firm: Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture
  • Maximum height: 135 feet
  • Floors: 11
  • Residences: 75
  • Site size: 28,764 square feet
  • Retail/commercial space: 54,700 square feet
  • Parking: 140 spaces
  • Resident parking spaces: 65
  • Public parking spaces: 75
  • Loading docks: one
  • Green Roof Alert! 8,100 square feet
