Even as the mixed-use Addison & Clark development in Lakeview continues to grow its roster of retailers as well as residential tenants, the project’s residential component has achieved LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The 148 units of the Residences at Addison & Clark have now contributed to Chicago’s No. 1 ranking for green-certified apartments.
“We always wanted to exceed the basic requirements, and develop an environmentally-friendly residential and entertainment complex that would elevate the Lakeview experience for both residents and visitors,” said Anthony Rossi Sr., president of M&R Development. The company is developing Addison & Clark in a joint venture with Bucksbaum Retail Properties.
Rossi added that exceeding the requirements was no easy task. “This was a complicated brownfield site with dilapidated structures from the 1880s, contaminated soil, underground tanks and a tangled web of utility lines that pre-dated World War II,” he said.
