Tenants will enjoy easy access to shopping, restaurants and access to The 606, Chicago’s new biking and walking trail.

CRG developed 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 just south of Logan Square, the new building is 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. Residents at AM 1980 enjoy a sophisticated, sleek and collective living experience. Located less than 500 feet from the Blue Line Western CTA Station, residents also enjoy easy access to The 606, Downtown and O’Hare International Airport

A.M. 1980 includes studio, jr. 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 tracker located in the lobby, onsite dog run, landscaped rooftop deck and 6,000-square-feet of ground retail.

Clayco was the design-builder and its subsidiary, Lamar Johnson Collaborative was the architect on the project.

Building with a Community

CRG believes in living by the golden rule of treating others as we wish to be treated and we are selective in choosing projects that are the most impactful to our clients and the communities in which we work.

While building in Bucktown, we were conscious that we were not only delivering a building that satisfied future tenants but that we were creating a new space in an existing and thriving community. The A.M. 1980 mural both heightens the image of our project while signifying that the new community of tenants is proudly tied to the neighborhood.

Standing Out

A.M. 1980 Residence is a transit-oriented development (TOD) and its location was strategically selected to be less than 500 feet from the Western Station, a main vein for passengers traveling back and forth from the city to O’Hare International Airport. This high level of traffic means that the A.M. 1980 mural is now a widely-seen image. This vibrant piece of art not only reflects the character of the neighborhood, it acts as an identifier for the building itself and setting it apart.
