Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood has a new kid on the block – in the form of an awesome new luxury apartment building at 927 Irving Park Road. 

I’m thrilled to see construction is a wrap on this new five-story mid-rise. Leasing began in December 2020 and I can only imagine how stoked renters are with that brand-new apartment smell. 

Located at 927 W. Irving Park Rd, the intimate mid-rise brings luxury apartment living to a Lakeview neighborhood that’s been hungry for it! While shiny new apartments are commonplace in most Chicago neighborhoods, they aren’t as easy to come by in this part of town. The surrounding blocks, near Sheridan at Irving Park, are lined with charming vintage low-rise flats and not a high-rise in sight.

New Construction That Fits Right In

It took a few years for local Chicago developer Dave Gassman to complete this project. Previously home to a worn-down single-story commercial building, major upfront leg-work was put into the redevelopment of the lot. Rezoning, neighborhood input and city approval was required before work could begin.   

And the result was worth it! Even though the apartment building is brand-new, it blends into the community aesthetic seamlessly. The brown-brick exterior complements the classic masonry-laden apartments found throughout this northern edge of Lakeview. At five-stories tall it peaks a bit above the neighboring two, three and four-story flats without being too imposing.
