The Future Rises in the Park East
The Avenir or "future" is a new five-floor, 104-unit apartment building rising before us.
Despite temperatures in the 20s, the crew from VJS Construction Services was hard at work today on Wangard Partners’ Avenir development. The Avenir is the first new housing development to be built in the footprint of the former Park East Freeway spur, on a site bounded by N. Jefferson St. on the east, N. Milwaukee St. on the west, E. Ogden Ave. on the south, and E Lyon St. on the north.
Just over a month ago the project team held an official ground-breaking ceremony for the Avenir, and our photos show work has continued in earnest.
