Rogers Park gets a LEED Silver building

Morgan at Loyola Station, ChicagoCleaning out the Yo inbox is like digging in between sofa cushions — all sorts of goodies can fall beneath the cracks. Take, for example, the announcement from early March about The Morgan at Loyola Station apartment complex becoming Rogers Park’s first LEED Silver development.

The mixed-use complex, located at 1209 W Arthur Ave, owes the certification to its green roof and “amenity garden,” native and drought-resistant plants in the surrounding landscaping, low VOC paints and carpeting, locally produced and recycled materials, bicycle storage, and I-GO Car Sharing spaces, according to a press release from McCaffery Interests.

McCaffery and Loyola University developed the The Morgan in 2009. Along with its 152 apartments (94% of which are currently leased), the building features 33,000 square feet of retail space and 205 parking spaces.

Apartments are available from $1,350 to $2,465 a month.
