Partially Affordable Development Breaks Ground in Chicago
Brinshore Development and The Michaels Organization are behind the 12-story project.
Brinshore Development and The Michaels Organization have broken ground on Westhaven Park Phase IID, a 96-unit partially affordable development in Chicago. McShane Construction Co. and Ashlaur Construction are the general constructors, while LBBA serves as the project’s main architect. Upon completion, scheduled for September 2024, approximately 66 percent of the units will be affordable.
The 121,800-square-foot, 12-story building will feature three retail spaces on the ground floor. The tower will incorporate one- and two-bedroom apartments, with amenities such as washers and dryers, stainless steel appliances and vinyl flooring. Common-area amenities will include a fitness center, a rooftop terrace, a community room, bicycle storage and parking spaces.
The project represents the final phase of the Westhaven Park development, which started off in 2006, when the Henry Horner Homes were demolished. McShane was the general contractor of the 113-unit condominium building completed during the first phase of Westhaven Park. In early 2023, the company was selected to handle the construction of a 192-unit multifamily community in metro Atlanta.
Located in Chicago’s Near West Side at 1959 West Lake St., Westhaven Park Phase IID will be situated adjacent to the CTA Green Line station, currently under construction at Lake Street and Damen Avenue. The site is in proximity of Interstate 290, providing access across the Chicago Metropolitan Area, and within a 2-mile radius from RUSH University Medical Center and University of Illinois Chicago.
