Motley School Apartments
Client Svigos Asset Management Location
Chicago, Illinois
The residential conversion of the historic Motley Elementary School, a 4-story masonry building on Chicago’s near West Side, includes the conversion into 34 residential apartments with attached interior parking, a new roof terrace, and an elevator providing service to each level. To comply with historic Federal Tax Credit requirements, the project retains its Renaissance Revival masonry details in traditional red pressed-brick, limestone, and pressed metal. Ornate cast-iron stairs, raised panel wood doors and portals, bead-board wainscott, first growth hardwood floors, glass transoms, and cabinetry are among the many other materials and character-defining original features retained and integrated into the completed project.
