Draper and Kramer Opens Wrigleyville Lofts to Move-Ins

Draper and Kramer has opened Wrigleyville Lofts, the developer’s new 120-unit mixed-use project at 949 W. Dakin St. in Wrigleyville, to the property’s first move-ins. Additionally, Lakeview Ace Hardware, which occupied the single-story structure that previously stood on the development site, has reopened in the new building’s first-floor retail space.   

Located across the street from the Sheridan Red Line station and two-and-a-half blocks north of Wrigley Field, the seven-story Wrigleyville Lofts was designed by Sullivan, Goulette & Wilson Architects. It includes 108 one-bedroom/one-bath and 12 two-bedroom/two-bath units ranging in size from 620 to 1,040 square feet. Rents start at $1,700 per month. 

“As a developer with a decades-long heritage helping shape Chicago’s neighborhoods, it’s extremely gratifying to open the doors to our newest rental property in one of the city’s most storied residential areas,” said Blas Puzon, CIO for Draper and Kramer.
