Construction is expected to start soon on Pullman Parc, a new residential development just across from the Lafayette Park neighborhood. Broder & Sachse Real Estate, Hunter Pasteur Homes, and Woodborn Partners announced that site work is starting on the project, which includes demo of the Friends School.

Demolition is expected at the end of the month, with construction starting in early 2019.

The new development will bring 81 for-sale townhouses, carriage homes, and corner flats, plus 180 apartment units for lease over four acres. The site border East Lafayette and St. Aubin—across from the Dequindre Cut—in the Elmwood Park neighborhood.

Sale of the residences will begin in early 2019, while leasing for apartments will start in late 2020.

Chicago-based Studio Dwell and Boston-based Merge Architects designed the townhome and flats, which will be built out by Hunter Pasteur Homes. BKV Group designed the apartments, named the Renato, which are being developed by Broder & Sachse and Woodborn Partners (Woodborn also did the Coe in West Village).

It’s close to another large residential development underway just outside of downtown. Lafayette West will see the demo of Shapero Hall to make way for construction of 374 residential units—an apartment high rise plus for-sale units—to 375 and Rivard Street.
