Chicago, Illinois

It began with a sketch in 2005.  Nearly ten years and 1.1 million square feet later, New City is complete. Halsted and Clybourn are now booming with opportunity, character and entertainment.  New City houses the largest Mariano’s in Chicago, Earls Kitchen + Bar, Arclight Cinema, Kings Bowling, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Z gallerie, a broad range of smaller retailers, and 199 units of luxury residential.

The Residences at New City were developed to complement the energy of the overall New City development and create a relaxing home.  Residents can engage in the energy and resources of the plaza, but also have a comfortable retreat above the activity below.  With a warm palette of materials and intimate layouts, the shared spaces of the tower establish a distinct home within a bustling 7 acre mixed use complex.

Serving as architect and land planner, OKW guided the site planning, building and interior design and landscape design of the LEED Gold project.
