Stone House Development – The Lyric + The Breese

Design two buildings that maximize the interior + exterior spaces

EUA designed the mixed-use, 11-story building, and adjoining wood-frame, 4-story affordable housing. This project spans half a city block and was finished in two phases: the first being the mixed-use building, The Lyric, and the second was an adjoining affordable housing building, The Breese.

The first three floors of The Lyric are filled with retail stores and office space. EUA worked with many of the tenants throughout the design and construction phases, ensuring a smooth process for the developer and tenants. The following seven floors are filled with high-end studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Covered in glass, the 11th story is a rooftop common area for tenants to enjoy.

With high demand for family housing, The Breese, a four-story, handicap accessible, affordable housing building was constructed and connected to The Lyric through underground parking. Zoning complexities with an 11-story concrete, and 4-story, wood frame project were mitigated with early and frequent communication with the city, neighbors and alderman throughout the project.
