Multi-use buildings

Lived, worked and parked in this building on Davis Street in Evanston. Four stories of apartments. First level retail and dining. Basement is multiple floors of parking for residents. Private ownership. Density. Ongoing fix-ups. Evanston's percent of property held by nonprofits is five times greater than Pittsburgh's.

Front side of the apartments. U shaped courtyard. Notice the high rise buildings in the background. Lots of density is necessary for the urban lifestyle to flourish.

Construction. The buildings are pre-sold.
