Center on Halsted (U/C)



This is the website for the under construction Center on Halsted to help serve the LGBTQ community. They have some wicked renderings too.

Center on Halsted Receives Design Grant for Green Building

CHICAGO-Center on Halsted, a first-of-its-kind community center in the nation offering social service, cultural and recreational programming for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons, announced today it received a $75,000 capital campaign grant from Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation for its new facility to be constructed at 3640 N. Halsted.

Working with its architect, Gensler and Power Construction Company, Center on Halsted (COH or "the Center") has designed an energy efficient building that will benefit the entire community. Features such as natural ventilation and light, CO2 monitoring, rainwater harvesting, solar hot water heating and the use of a renewable energy source, will create a healthier environment for the building's users while using energy in more responsible ways - a choice that will have positive ramifications beyond its own doors.

COH executive director Robbin Burr said, "Being responsible stewards of all our resources flows quite naturally out of our mission. This building will say something about us as a community for years to come - long after we are gone. That is why it has been so important to get this building design just right prior to breaking ground."

The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation invests in clean energy development and land preservation efforts, working with communities and residents to improve environmental quality in Illinois. "We are extremely pleased to support the Center on Halsted's efforts to invest in an energy efficient building through a green design grant,' said Foundation executive director James Mann. "Not only will the Center benefit the community through its reduction of energy use, but it will also be a resource and model for others who wish to know more about energy efficiency."

This grant is a welcome addition to Center on Halsted's capital campaign. The organization is working towards groundbreaking as soon as possible with final design, development, pricing and permitting currently underway.

only 1 out of 5? Comon wong, not everything has to be innovative! I mean, sure, I wish it were, but those other buildings aren't bad at all. The Vic condos, as rendered, look great. What's wrong with them?

okay i guess the damen/diversey looks okay on further inspection, it is a rather small picture, what is nice is that atleast its rowhouses and there are different from each other and not too homogenious,

The vic structure is kindof lame, im sure it would be nice to live in and yes im glad that parking lot is no more, but it doesnt inspire me a whole lot.
Yeah I know they all cant be innovative, but more of them could be, a higher percentage of nicer buildings wouldnt hurt.

okay i will say 2/5 is decent, the others are serviceable builidings, but arent going to win any design awards, or inspire anyone to be an architect


and the one nice thing about the parkview east is they have awnings for the retail and the first floor is taller than the others, as it should be to encourage decent commercial tenants.

maybe the others will grow on me,

I was driving north on Lincoln and I saw this building, and I loved it. Very intelligent usage of this land.

On another note, this was brought up on SSP.

541 West Cornelia
JDL Development
21 units (only one for each for floor)

But on JDL's site, in the floor plans PDF they showed a penthouse on the 25th floor. So this should be something good once they announce it. There's also a roof garden/ dog park.

I love that Halsted Row. Where is that going? You got to admit, the quality being put into infill projects has gotten better every year, both in modern and post-modern designs.
