You don’t need a tower crane to be cool, kids.
Case in point: The Sedgwick at Locust, at 367 West Locust Street in the old Cabrini-Green neighborhood, is having some ironwork done with the help of a simple-yet-mighty rolling crane. Showing no signs of intimidation despite being wedged between tower cranes at NEXT and Niche 905, the big-wheeled Atlas machine is doing quite well setting beams upon beams.
One of the joys in watching a low-rise structure get underway is seeing immediate signs of character, without having to sit through a whole bunch of foundation and podium work. Even with only its steel framing in place, you can already see where some of The Sedgwick’s balconies will be.
Belgravia Realty Group s building two-bed/two-bath, and three-bed/three-bath condos over this six-floor project on the former grounds of Saint Dominic’s Catholic Church. Designed by the Chicago firm of Sullivan Goulette & Wilson Architects, the 44 units at The Sedgwick at Locust range in size from 1,197 square feet up to 2,060 square feet. The development will boast a heated 52-car parking garage, roof-top deck, and high-end features and finishes throughout each condominium. Oh yes, and balconies. Each condo will have an 18-to-22-foot balcony.
