SKYlofts (4-live/work lofts) 1629 oak st., evanston, IL

1629 Oak
Evanston, Illinois 60201

adas/spatz properties

PROJECT UPDATE (7.9.2013):

This is our first new construction venture into downtown evanston. Initially, the existing 2 story frame building will be demolished. We are replacing it with (4) 1,600 SF live/work units. Due to site and code constraints, the entire project is “elevated” to the 2nd floor. Many of the ideas from our previous adaptive re-use project at 604 davis have been incorporated into this project. Units can be combined or shared for multiple uses.  

In keeping with our previous projects, energy efficiency, daylighting and natural ventilation, “sensible” green design and flexibility to adapt to future technologies are incorporated in the design.
