Chicago Mercy

The Mercy Medical Building at Oakwood Shores is an important part of a continuing strategy to recapture the former vibrancy of one of the Southside’s great streets, Cottage Grove Avenue. The new building is a six story mixed use structure with the first two floors given over to medical suites for Mercy Hospital. Floors three through six contain 48 apartments.

Inspired by elegant examples of remarkable pre-World War II Chicago apartment buildings in the area, the Mercy building utilizes a palette of pre-cast masonry panels with stone accents, and variations in texture, punched window openings and balconies for each unit. A two story arcade of columns distinguishes the medical floors from the residential floors above.

Project amenities include a landscaped pavillion with seating available to the building’s neighbors.
