We are extremely excited to bring both new and familiar retailers to Chicago + Main. New retail will enhance the strong pedestrian activity at this hub of southern Evanston
Evanston, IL (PRWEB) August 31, 2015
The state of the art, transit oriented mixed-use project, Chicago + Main, is on schedule and has not wasted any time securing great tenants and amenities for its development. Located at the southeast corner of Chicago Avenue and Main Street in Evanston, Illinois, the development broke ground in Spring 2015 and has a planned opening of Summer 2016.
Goddess And The Baker and local bank First Bank & Trust of Evanston are the most recent additions to Chicago + Main. Goddess And The Baker has signed a lease for a 2,469 square foot space. First Bank & Trust will relocate from their current Main Street location to the more prominent Chicago + Main, where they have signed a lease for a 2,068 square foot space.
The 9 story mixed-use project is comprised of 112 upscale apartments, 112 onsite parking stalls, ground level retail space (11,156 rentable square feet), a second level containing office (12,333 rentable square feet), and shared amenity space. The project is being developed by Riverside Investment & Development in partnership with Atlantic Realty Partners and is intended to create a distinct, contemporary design that complements the neighborhood aesthetic. Chicago + Main will achieve the LEED Silver designation, by award winning architect GREC.
Julian Soto of Sierra U.S. Commercial Real Estate represents Riverside Investment & Development and is responsible for leasing the remaining retail space at Chicago + Main.
