McShane Construction Company Delivers 84-Unit Mixed-Use Property for Brinshore-Michaels in Chicago, Illinois

May 16, 2017

Jeffrey A. Raday, P.E., President of McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has completed an on-time delivery of Clybourn 1200 – a highly anticipated mixed-use development of Brinshore-Michaels.

The 84-unit property is positioned on the corner of Clybourn Avenue and Division Street in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. The seven-story building, which offers mixed-income housing, is within walking distance to numerous shops, restaurants and entertainment options as well as the CTA Clark/Division Red Line Station. The infill site is also easily accessible to the Kennedy Expressway.  

Clybourn 1200 features 17,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, a 25,295 square foot secured indoor parking garage on the second floor, and five floors incorporating 84 mixed-income apartments. The development was designed and constructed integrating numerous sustainable features such as a solar hot water system, low VOC products, permeable pavers and Energy Star lighting and appliances.

The residence was constructed of precast concrete that utilizes a blend of textures and colors adding architectural interest to the prominent corner structure. Sleek aluminum windows with varying mullion designs accent the modern design while steel and glass canopies at the retail and residential entrances emphasize the contemporary lines of the building.

Units are available in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. Each apartment is complete with stylish fixtures and finishes together with in-unit washers and dryers, sizable closets and an in-floor radiant heat system. 

In addition to thoughtfully configured residences, tenants are offered an array of amenities located throughout the property including a community room, computer lab, party room with a kitchen and fitness center. An elegant roof deck located on the third floor provides outdoor amenity space with comfortable seating, a gas grill and fire place. Unique to Clybourn 1200 is the rooftop vegetable garden for residents to utilize and an Apiary, or a bee keeping area.

“Clybourn 1200 has successfully transformed a prominent corner in Chicago’s north side into a dynamic and productive destination benefitting the surrounding community,” remarked Raday. “McShane Construction is honored to have served Brinshore-Michaels in bringing their vision of a mixed-use property that balances quality mixed-income housing and retail to this strategic urban site within the City of Chicago.”

Pappageorge Haymes Partners served as the project architect for this notable mixed-use assignment.
