In Chicago, it is very common for residential and commercial spaces to share a building. A benefit of these mixed use properties is both the sustainability of this type of infrastructure as well as the convenience of retail and residential being together. In areas with higher populations, whatever the combination, the allotment of space for each entity gives it purpose. From salons to restaurants, theaters to residences, each individual space needs to speak for itself and have its own voice. When planning commercial development in urban spaces, we strive to deliver both an attractive and purposeful opportunity for both homeowners and business owners alike.
