Clybourn 1200, 1200 N Clybourn Ave, Near North Side

Clybourn 1200 is a 7-story, 84-unit mixed-use, mixed-income apartment building under construction on the Near North Side. The building will include ground-floor retail, a daycare and 74 parking spaces.

The development is one of the latest phases of the CHA’s Plan for Transformation.

Clybourn 1200 is a joint venture between Brinshore Development and Michaels Development as the developers, Pappageorge Haymes Partners as the architect firm and McShane Construction as the general contractor.

Occupancy is slated for 2017.

The apartments

The building will feature studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floorplans.

Clybourn 1200 will include market-rate apartments with a percentage of the units set aside as affordable.

Full details of the apartment finishes have not been released yet, but the units will have in-unit washer / dryers and in-floor radiant heat.

Views. Clybourn 1200 will not be a view building. Views will be blocked by neighboring buildings of similar heights.

Amenities, services, policies

Clybourn 1200 will have a good amenities package for a building of its size.

Amenities at Clybourn 1200 will include a community room, office area, party room and fitness center.

The third floor will feature a landscaped deck with seating, a grill, an outdoor fireplace, and a resident vegetable garden.

The building will have on-site covered and uncovered parking.

The location

The location offers most renters fewer advantages than other new Near North Side apartment towers. The location lacks amenities like restaurants within walking distance of the building.

The location is within walking distance of the Clybourn Corridor. The Clybourn Corridor is a cluster of big-box retail, including the New City development, a half-mile to the northwest of the building.

Shopping. A new Target is two blocks away from Clybourn 1200.

The new Plum Market is a four-tenths of a mile east, just north of Division on Wells St in the 1225 Old Town building.

Whole Foods is a mile northwest of the building. The store spans 75,000 square feet and was the third-largest Whole Foods in the world when it opened in 2009. The Mariano’s at New City is larger than the Whole Foods, and is more accessible to residents of Clybourn 1200.

Dining, nightlife, entertainment. Residents at Clybourn 1200 will have a hike to dining and drinking establishments. There’s nothing within a few blocks of the building.

Panera and Starbucks are in a strip center adjacent to the building. The start of the Wells Street strip of restaurants and bars in Old Town is about a 10-minute walk.

Parks, recreation. Stanton Park, two blocks northwest of the building, has a field house with an indoor pool, a gym and two club meeting rooms. The 6 1/2-acre park also has baseball fields, a football / soccer field and basketball courts.

Seward Park, which has softball / soccer fields, outdoor basketball courts and a field house with two gyms and a boxing ring, is a block east of the building.

Transportation. Public transportation is poor, apart from the #70 Division bus, which connects to the CTA Red Line and Blue Line stops on Division.

Clybourn 1200 has relatively close access to I-90/94 via Division St. At peak hours, however, travel can be tediously slow.

Zipcar locations and taxi service are not as readily available as they are in more established neighborhoods further east. DIVVY bike stations are located a block east at Seward Park and a block north in the shopping center at Division and Clybourn.
