CRG Unveils its Bucktown Neighborhood Development A.M. 1980

CHICAGO, IL – CRG is developing A.M. 1980, a multifamily rental building at the intersection of Milwaukee and Armitage Avenues in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood. Located at 1980 North Milwaukee Avenue, just south of Logan Square, the new building will be 110,000-square-feet with approximately 132 units, and 16 parking spaces.

“Bucktown is one of Chicago’s creative epicenters with a thriving nightlife, live music, restaurants and art galleries,” said CRG Multifamily Director Brittani Sanders. “Located less than 500 feet from the Blue Line CTA station, residents will also enjoy easy access to The 606, downtown and O’Hare International Airport.”

A.M. 1980 will include studio, junior one bedroom, one and two-bedroom options.  High-end cutting-edge amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, lounge and coffee bar, secure package storage, Pressbox dry cleaning lockers, 96 Walkscore, CTA bus and train trackers located in the lobby, onsite dog run, landscaped rooftop deck and 6,000-square-feet of ground floor retail, will also make this building a sophisticated and collective living experience.

“CRG’s formal commitment to build its multifamily brand began in 2015 and A.M. 1980 is another addition to our rapidly growing portfolio,” CRG President Shawn Clark said. “Our main goal is to develop meaningful projects in strategic markets across the United States and we look forward to expanding our footprint in Chicago.”

Construction on A.M. 1980 began in the summer of 2017. Clayco is the design-builder and its subsidiary, Lamar Johnson Collaborative is the architect on the project. Residents will begin moving in late summer 2018. For leasing information, visit, call (773) 887-1980 or email [email protected].
