The Morgan at Loyola Station, Chicago, Illinois

First green building in Chicago neighborhood incorporates sustainability and an inviting appearance

 

Located in Chicago's revitalized Rogers Park neighborhood, the Morgan at Loyola Station is the cornerstone of a $400-million, 5.4-acre master-planned, mixed-use redevelopment project on Loyola University Chicago's property. This $54.5-million project features 152 residential apartments, ten university-owned units, and 33,000 square feet of retail space.

Residents of the Morgan enjoy a number of amenities that are the result of developer McCaffrey Interests' achievement of LEED®-NC certification, making it the first green, mixed-use building in Rogers Park. These include use of sustainable construction materials and efficient utilities, an improved building envelope and maximized daylighting, a rooftop garden, and convenient access to bike trails and public transportation.

To achieve the goals of a tighter building envelope and daylighting, Teutonic® Series tilt-turn and fixed windows were installed throughout the Morgans' residential units and common spaces. The windows were selected for their exceptional energy efficiency and sound abatement properties, as well as their improved cost effectiveness when compared to traditional aluminum windows. In addition, the modern and welcoming appearance of the uPVC profiles aligns well with the Morgan's hip, friendly look and feel.
