District House

Oak Park, Illinois

About the Project

In close collaboration with the Miller Hull Partnership, Northworks was commissioned to design a new 76,660 square-foot mixed use building in historic Oak Park. The District House blends 28 spacious condominiums with indoor parking and ground-floor retail. The project was designed to enhance the pedestrian-oriented retail district along Lake Street and provide new destinations for residents and visitors. Above the storefronts, four floors of modern residences offer occupants an urban lifestyle without sacrificing the amenities of the historic Oak Park community. Large expanses of exterior glazing and generous roof terraces connect the units to the neighborhood while providing dramatic views of the surrounding area. A sophisticated material palette and refined detailing make this project a strong addition to a town renowned for its world class architecture!
