Draper and Kramer Launches Pre-Leasing on Wrigleyville Rentals

Draper and Kramer has launched pre-leasing for Wrigleyville Lofts, the developer’s new 120-unit mixed-use project at 949 W. Dakin St. in the North Side’s Wrigleyville neighborhood. Located across the street from the Sheridan Red Line station and two and a half blocks north of Wrigley Field, the community is currently under construction and will welcome residents this fall.

Designed by Sullivan, Goulette & Wilson Architects, the seven-story building will offer 108 one-bedroom/one-bath and 12 two-bedroom/two-bath units ranging in size from 620 to 1,040 square feet. Additionally, the building features 14,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

“Leasing activity across our Chicago portfolio has been incredibly strong throughout spring and early summer as the city reopened, and we expect that trajectory to continue,” said Blas Puzon, CIO for Draper and Kramer. “Many people are now once again considering urban apartment living as they reevaluate their housing needs.”
