Embodying an authentic urban aesthetic, 747 N Clark showcases clean lines and an industrial palette of materials. Inspired by Chicago's modernist architectural heritage, the facade predominantly comprises steel and glass, evoking a contemporary charm. Welcoming occupants with a charred oak entry door, the building's design extends to a garage clad in hot-rolled steel plate, adding a touch of distinction.
However, what may not be immediately apparent is that this project represents a remarkable transformation—a redesign and repurposing of a previously stalled pre-recession mixed-use structure. The original developer had to abandon the project after completing the steel frame, leaving it vacant for several years. Recognizing the potential of both the structure and the neighborhood, Ranquist Development acquired the project in the spring of 2013, breathing new life into this architectural gem.
