The large apartment development at the corner of West Lawrence and North Wolcott in Lincoln Square has taken full shape. I first wrote about the Chase Bank re-development plan back in 2016. You can see some photos of the original bank building at the link. The four story mixed-use buildings steps from the Ravenswood Metra and surrounding retail are better use than the old bank and surface parking lot. I was walking home from my own grocery shopping when I decided to check back in on the project.

According to Harlem and Irving Companies web site the finished development will feature 167 units.
"Located at 4733 N. Wolcott Ave., The Raven Residences (opening Fall 2022) will feature (two) four-story stylish brick facade buildings. The eastern building fronting Ravenswood will feature 55 luxury studio one-bedroom apartments. The western building will be comprised of 112 opulent studios, one-bedroom units, and two-bedroom units."
