The Scott Residences, a boutique mid-rise at 211 W. Scott Street in Chicago’s Old Town, has completed construction and is open for occupancy. The six-story, 120,000 SF mixed-use building features 71 apartments, structured parking and 10,000 SF of ground-level retail space. The project is the most recent collaboration of co-developers JDL Development and Harlem Irving Companies with Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, which together delivered Halsted Flats at 3750 N. Halsted in Spring 2014.
The project adds density and a street presence to this well-trafficked site at Scott and Wells Streets, which lies across the street from 1225 Old Town, another HPA-designed project. The Scott Residences’ urbane masonry and glass facade complements the architectural vernacular and scale of neighboring Victorian-era buildings. Starbucks and Massage Envy are among the retailers occupying the storefront bays along Wells Street.
Providing architecture and interior design services, HPA developed an interior concept that melds early 20th century motifs with a contemporary twist. Period details include vintage light fixtures, reclaimed wood and a repurposed fireplace. Expansive amenities include a club room, fitness center, billiards room and roof terraces with views of the Chicago skyline.
