747 North Clark is a refined, yet industrial home for the urban, working family. The upper-scale, open-plan designs allow for extreme comfort and seamlessness between working and living.
Each condominium is arranged on its own floor, with private, in-unit elevator access. Full-length windows cover the entire West side of the homes, allowing for a large amount of natural light. Custom finishes, including imported Italian cabinetry, complete the seamless interior and contrast nicely with the visually raw materials on the building’s exterior. All units are between 2,000 –2,580 square feet, and include private balconies and/or private terraces.
Beyond the architecture and design, what makes 747 North Clark unique is that it is actually the total redesign of a stalled recession- era construction project. The building was abandoned once topped out and sat vacant for years until Ranquist Development Group envisioned its potential. Unexpected challenges due to exposure and updated code requirements required substantial rework of the derelict shell. This renovated building has been given spirited new life, and symbolizes U.S. economic resiliency and renewal. With buildings in American cities aging quickly, and energy efficiency becoming increasingly important, we are further inspired by the positive impact the renovation and redesign of urban infill buildings like this can offer on a broader scale.
