While it hasn’t drawn as much attention as plans for a brew pub down the block, a new loft building is under construction in the 1600 block of Oak Avenue in downtown Evanston.
The SKYlofts development at 1629 Oak Ave. is a project of Adaz/Spatz Properties.
When completed the building will feature four 1,600 square foot live-work lofts for rent, with parking on the ground level.
Long-time residents may recognize the old house torn down to make way for the new building as the one-time studio of the late Evanston artist Rosemary Zwick.
The new building will feature architects Berry/Spatz Associates signature use of metal and glass and unconventional angles.
