The Pilsen neighborhood has experienced significant revitalization, but market rents are currently discounted as compared to the more established neighborhoods of Chicago. The neighborhood has a strong demand for rentals but is lacking supply of newly built apartments. The Rosie was designed for the urban renter with an emphasis on building amenities and smaller unit sizes to maintain a level of affordability. The development will feature a Class A product with condo quality finishes while providing an affordable price point for the neighborhood. The average unit size is approximately 616 square feet, taking advantage of efficient floor plans at rents below $2,000 per month. The second floor is set back to allow for an 8,500 square foot outdoor amenity deck on top of the first-floor retail bay. Residents will benefit from additional amenities that include a lounge, fully equipped gym, and ample parking.
