JGMA helped create a vision to transform a vacant parking lot into a 74-unit rental housing development in suburban Wheeling, Illinois. It is our vision to bring a vibrant and impactful housing development to this underutilized corner of Wheeling. The three-story building design seeks to unify all residents under one sweeping, undulating roof while each protruding triangular balcony allows for individual expression along the elevations. Subtle variations of balcony size and color add additional layers of texture to the building. The form responds directly to the surrounding context while interpreting the zoning requirements in a way that creates a unique identity for the development.
