Emmett Street Apartments Project

Affordable Rental Housing in the Heart of Logan Square

Situated in the heart of Logan Square, the Emmett Street Project provides high-quality affordable rental housing, ensuring that long-time residents continue to call the neighborhood home. 

Developed by Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation and designed by Landon Bone Baker Architects, this transit-oriented development spans from two to seven stories, the heights are staggered and the building is set back from Emmett Street so that the building fits in with the neighboring residential structures.

The building includes:

  • 100 units of affordable housing
  • A mix of one, two, and three-bedroom units
  • Spacious lobby
  • Onsite laundry facilities
  • Community room
  • Onsite Bickerdike Apartments Property Management & Maintenance Office
  • Interior bike room and exterior bike racks
  • Two elevators
  • Approximately 4,300 square feet of commercial space facing Kedzie Avenue

The Emmett Street Project site was an underutilized City of Chicago-owned parking lot that faced the southwest side of Emmett Street, west of Kedzie Avenue and northwest of the Logan Square CTA Blue Line station. The site is approximately 5.3 miles northwest of downtown.

The Emmett Street Project site is an ideal location for affordable rental housing. It not only provides homes to residents who are at risk of displacement as rents continue to rise in Logan Square, but the proximity to public transportation provides greater access to employment opportunities and to all that Chicago has to offer.
