PROJECT NAME: MEDICAL OFFICES WITH APARTMENTS
CONSTRUCTION COST: $1,750,000
The project, consisting of medical offices on the first floor with (2) two-story apartments above, was built by two doctors, who are sisters. Each doctor occupies one ot the apartments, and together they work in the offices below.
The project is located on what is designated as a "Pedestrian Street" in the Chicago Zoning Ordinance, which requires a floor to floor height of 13 feet minimum from the first floor to the second floor on the street side.
By slightly increasing the minimum, it was possible to slip in a third, one bedroom rental apartment, on a mezzanine floor just above the garage and below the second floor, at the rear.
Balconies across the front and back elevations, and roof terraces, provide private outdoor spaces for each apartment.
