CHICAGO, IL (April 2, 2019) – Chicago-based The Habitat Company has announced the start of pre-leasing for 111 apartments at The Concord at Sheridan, a seven-story mixed-use, mixed-income development at 6438 N. Sheridan Road in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood.

The project, a joint venture that includes Three Corners Development, Iceberg Development, the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), Lightengale Group and Cubit Development, is slated to welcome first residents this spring. 

Located steps from Loyola University Chicago’s Lake Shore Campus, The Concord at Sheridan is an urban infill development that will bring nearly 30,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, anchored by a flexible-format Target store, to the neighborhood.

Virginia Pace
The project will also include a mix of one- and two-bedroom residences ranging from 520 to 1,049 square feet. Sixty-five units are reserved as affordable housing for CHA residents, while the remaining 46 will be market-rate units, with monthly rents starting at $1,225.

“Combining mixed-income housing with a mixed-use development is one of the best ways to help a community at large evolve and drive economic growth,” said Charlton Hamer, senior vice president of Habitat Affordable Group, a division of The Habitat Company, which is leasing and managing The Concord at Sheridan.

Charlton Hamer
“Not only will The Concord at Sheridan bring in a diverse population that will frequent area retail and restaurants, but the Target also will be adding jobs to the neighborhood while filling a retail void.” 

“This project brings many like-minded partners together, all with the same goal of improving the options and opportunities for more retail and housing choices within an already vibrant neighborhood,” said Rob Ferrino, president of Three Corners Development.

“The amenities at The Concord at Sheridan were chosen carefully and they are designed to be as diverse as its residents – something for everyone,” said Virginia Pace of Lightengale Group.

 “Whether residents want a stylish and inviting space to accommodate a business meeting or book club, or a place to be more active and socialize by playing games or working out, this building has them all.”
