Facade Work Kicks Off For Clubhouse At Bronzeville’s Prairie Shores

Jack Crawford, Chicago Yimby

Tan brickwork can now be seen along the exterior walls of a new two-story amenity clubhouse at 2937 S Martin Luther King Drive, part of Bronzeville‘s Prairie Shores apartment complex. The co-developers of this project, Golub & Company and Farpoint Development, purchased the five-building Prairie Shores assemblage for $180 million in 2019 in partnership with Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group.

The apartments were originally built in 1960 in the modernist style, but have increasingly begun to show wear prior to the purchase. Various upgrades have already been completed under the new ownership, including interior renovations of the existing 1,675 residences, landscaping, and common area improvements.

Nestled between two of the quintuplet apartment towers, the new amenity clubhouse serves as the latest step in this chain of enhancements, and provides more than 17,000 square feet of leisure and wellness space. The building will come with a new fully-equipped fitness center, with strength training on the first floor and both yoga and cardio on the second. There will also be room for a new lounge area, a game room, a kitchen/bar, and a co-working center with both individual and collaborative workspaces. Outside on the second level, meanwhile, will be a terrace space with grilling stations, fire pits, a bar and lounge, open turf space, and media walls. This outdoor oasis will be accessible via the second floor of the clubhouse or via a rear staircase.
