Skender Tops Out on Supportive Housing in Uptown

Skender recently reached the final height on a new 36,000-square-foot, six-story supportive housing facility for Sarah’s Circle in the North Side’s Uptown neighborhood. The nonprofit organization serves women who are homeless or in need of a safe space by providing services such as food, clothing, shelter, housing and clinical services for domestic violence and trauma.

Located at the intersection of Sheridan and Leland, this steel and precast building will include a basement, and 38 units for long-term housing and emergency overnight space for 50 nonpermanent beds. The shelter will also feature a food hall, walk-in commercial freezer and hot room.

Skender is working in collaboration with design firm Perkins+Will and owner’s representative Brinshore Development to complete the project.
