Lofts on Arthington

The Lofts on Arthington, 181 loft-style rental units in the Homan Square neighborhood, represents the restoration and rehabilitation of an iconic piece of Chicago’s history. Housed in the former Sears catalog printing facility, the 225,000-square-foot structure now provides affordable housing and critical support services such as job training, pre-K education, and in-unit neonatal care to more than 600 residents. The restoration of the 102-year-old historical landmark pays homage to Sears in many ways; the exterior façade, windows, and staircases maintain their original integrity, while the front lobby’s marble baseboards, original clay floors, and restored elevator doors look as they did in the early 1900s.
