Currently the home of Terry Dowd, Inc., a fine arts storage and transportation company, 2501 Armitage will redevelop and reimagine a passive warehouse space to capitalize on transit and provide new, high-quality housing in West Bucktown. Initial proposals were developed to adhere to recommendations gleaned from the area’s recent master plan, including increased density, activating the on-the-street pedestrian experience, and reduced on-site parking. Most importantly, Armitage provides an opportunity to lead the way in transit oriented development (TOD) in Chicago. The site is a 3-minute walk from the Western Blue Line Station, steps away from several bus lines, and directly across the street from a Divvy station. The size of the parcel, at nearly 1-acre, inspired the development team to incorporate a large central courtyard to provide significant green space to connect the two buildings that house 78 apartment units and 6,600 of commercial space.
