Focus is thrilled to have been selected as general contractor for construction of a new ground-up apartment building at 2340 North California in Chicago’s Logan Square. The 130,088 GSF, six-story building will be home to 138 luxury apartments in this vibrant north side neighborhood. The ground floor will include a lobby, surface parking, and multiple retail spaces totaling approximately 9,200 square feet. A mix of studio, one- to two-bedroom units will occupy most of the building’s upper five floors. The building will also offer such amenities as a fitness studio, an outdoor park and a rooftop terrace.
The construction of the building will use a mix of different systems. The ground floor exterior will be comprised of glazed masonry and a thermally broken aluminum storefront system, while the upper floors will include pre-finished metal panels and high-quality, thermally efficient fiberglass windows.
Structurally, the first-floor podium consists of a steel frame and concrete deck, while the five floors above will be framed with structural light-gauge metal, with concrete decks poured over metal decking.
