The property located at 2501 West Armitage was once a well-known fine arts storage facility dating back to the early 1900s. In 2013, Tandem was selected by the owner to redevelop the property into a vibrant, mixed-use community – MODE Logan Square. The project is a LEED certified, transit-oriented development (TOD), located only 635 feet from the Western Blue Line train station. The team began the rezoning process in 2013, working closely with Alderman Proco Joe Moreno and Antunovich Associates. After numerous planning iterations, Tandem moved forward with the development of two 4-story buildings with 78 units, 55 parking spaces, and 6,500 square feet of retail along Armitage Avenue. The building is unique in that it provides residents with a spacious interior courtyard that offers lush landscaping and furnished gathering spaces. Other building amenities include a fitness center, community room, and spacious terraces for the second floor units that face the courtyard. MODE was the catalyst for the establishment of Tandem’s first Property Management division.
