The Residences at Addison & Clark are one of Wrigley Field’s newest neighbors. The transit-oriented development holds 148-units and several retail tenants.
On average, more than 38,000 baseball fans attend each Cubs home game at Wrigley Field. To accommodate the dense foot traffic around the stadium during baseball season, EEA implemented crucial pedestrian safety measures, including enlarged sidewalks and crosswalks around the perimeter of the development.
Access to the site was carefully designed off of the public alley to accommodate large commercial trucks for the retail tenants and connect to the on-site parking garage for residents.
During the design phase, an old AT&T duct bank was discovered underneath the private property. EEA engineers worked to solve the conflicts this infrastructure created for the design team, and ensured the duct was kept intact without impacting the project.
The Residences of Addison & Clark site is comprised of an area of over two acres. To meet the stormwater management requirements, it was essential that stormwater runoff was diverted to each of the three watersheds that surround the project. To do this, EEA designed a multi-phase detention system that could maintain existing drainage pathways and relieve stress on the existing sewer infrastructure.
