Elevated Ellis: Affordable & Sustainable; Efficient & Responsible; Safe & Walkable

We are proud to share, along with our project partners, Michaels, DL3, Canopy and Sunshine Enterprises, our proposal for development on 63rd Street in Chicago’s historic Woodlawn neighborhood. Welcome to Elevated Ellis. Our proposed six-story, 92,000 sq ft, mixed-income building houses 73 one-, two- and three-bedroom residences, including 11 live-work lofts and 7,364 sq ft of commercial space for a potential brewpub, restaurant or other retail uses. Drawing inspiration from textiles and African American folk art, our proposed design connects or “stitches” historically disparate parts of the Woodlawn Neighborhood and brings together existing residents with the city beyond. Use the architecture to stitch the street back together, creating a consistent streetscape along 63rd. Animate the street space with a fine grain of activity that relates to community needs.

Elevated Ellis: bring 63rd Street to life with the life of the building!
