Phoenix takes off in Uptown

Development combines residential units and retail spaces in new and rehabilitated buildings

The Phoenix at Uptown Square, a mixed-use new-construction condominium, adaptive-reuse loft and retail development, is underway in Chicago's historic Uptown neighborhood on the North Side.

The $24.3 million development includes the rehabilitation of the long-vacant, former Goldblatt's department store on the 4700 block of North Broadway.

Plans call for 37 lofts and 41,000 square feet of retail space including a Borders Book and Music store on the corner of Broadway and Racine, just south of Lawrence.

The three-phase development, being developed by Joseph Freed and Associates, features the renovation of two historic terra cotta buildings --- one with 24 condominiums and first-floor retail space. Plans also include a newly constructed two-story condominium building with 13 "soft-lofts" and first-floor retail space.
