Shops and Lofts at 47

Chicago, IL
Altamanu, Inc. was retained by PappaGeorgeHaymes Partners to assist with landscape architectural services on a major development in an under-served community.
Since its recent opening, the ‘Shops & Lofts at 47’ has been praised as a success for the Bronzeville neighborhood offering 55,000 square feet of retail space and 96 mixed income housing units. The stakeholders believe the project will serve as a catalyst to new development in the neighborhood.
Site  design  elements  include  parkway plantings featuring canopy tree and in-ground planters along the building and parking lot periphery, a 29,000 square foot green roof system with sedums and flowering perennials and site furnishings to compliment this new building.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said at the 2013 ribbon cutting: “Not only does it look better, it’s exactly the kind of investment we want to see.”
