Uptown Preservation Phase 1

Uptown Preservation Apartments Phase 1 is a moderate rehab project of 3 existing 1920's midrise buildings consisting of 77 affordable rental units. These buildings were rehabbed in the late 80s and require a moderate amount of repairs. The scope was a moderate rehab securing the building envelope with extensive exterior building shell work including new windows, upgrading the existing heating system to high energy efficient boilers, and renovating all tenant common areas and units with new finishes and fixtures. Differing from the other two 3 story masonry and wood frame buildings, 927 W Wilson is a 5 story residential building with 41 units with a concrete frame construction with brick and terra cotta on the front. The plan is a typical Chicago “T” shaped corridor building. In addition to the residential units a community room and management office was created at 927 Wilson.
