Leopardo Breaks Ground on Mixed-Use Apartment Development

Leopardo recently broke ground on a mixed-use apartment development at 949 W. Dakin St. in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood near Wrigley Field. Construction will entail the demolition of two existing single-story buildings to make way for a new seven-story structure.

The building will feature 120 residential units, five separate retail spaces on the ground floor, as well as a partial basement and 14 structured indoor parking spaces. The project also includes the build-out of multiple amenities spaces, such as a club room, fitness center, lounge and bike storage space. The structure will also include a rooftop patio area with sun loungers, firepits and outdoor grilling, as well as a vegetated green roof system.

“We’re extremely excited to again be working with this great team in such an iconic neighborhood,” said Leopardo Vice President Mike Mastin.

The property at 949 W. Dakin St. is another project in Leopardo’s portfolio of multifamily residential experience, which includes the recently completed 61 E. Banks, Independence Library and Apartments and 4 E. Elm Street.

Leopardo is proudly collaborating with Draper and Kramer, Project Management Advisors and SGW Architects to complete the project by the fall of 2021.
