A Facebook post yesterday from Hirsch Associates Architects announced the topping out of The Viridian on Sheridan, a new 10-story apartment building from Vermilion Development.
The 100-unit building sits on the corner of Sheridan and Broadway, at 734 West Sheridan Road. The Hirsch design includes one-bed, two-bed, and three-bedroom units, with a top-floor amenity level, all sitting under a green roof that will include a vegetable garden. (Of course, renters won’t want to tell their moms that, or they’ll be told they have to eat more vegetables.) Ground-level retail space will also be included, as will 59 parking spots.
Work on The Viridian on Sheridan got started this past winter, when a demolition permit was issued in late February to wreck and remove the gas station formerly on the site. The the City of Chicago issued the building permit for the new property in April of this year, and general contractor Arco/Murray got to work on construction.
Vermilion plans to have residents in their new digs in Spring 2018. Congratulations to the entire team on reaching the top!
