ANDERSONVILLE — An urgent care facility is coming to Andersonville, and will occupy space in one of Clark Street’s newest buildings.
NorthShore, the Evanston-based health care group, will open an urgent care facility in the new apartment complex at 4914 N. Clark St.
The medical facility will occupy just over half of the 6,000 square feet on the ground floor of the Ainslie, the 54-unit apartment-and-retail building that began leasing late last year, said Michael Shenouda, founder of Honore Properties, one of the building’s developer.
NorthShore is expected to begin building out the urgent care center soon, and is seeking to open in the space in the summer, a spokesperson for NorthShore said.
Move-ins are now underway at the Ainslie, the new luxury apartment complex. Rents at the building start at $1,450 per month. With residential leasing beginning in December, the building is now 45 percent occupied, Shenouda said.
Since the Ainslie sits on the southern end of a bustling retail strip, Shenouda said he was not surprised to see a commercial tenant sign on so quickly to the space. Talks are active with prospective tenants for the other space, he said.
“We’ve been blown away by the interest, especially in the [winter] months which are slow” for leasing, Shenouda said. “We’ve gotten good feed back.”
NorthShore is not the only company coming to the southern end of Andersonville’s Clark Street corridor. Bryn Mawr Jewelry Company opened in late February at 5139 N. Clark St., and in April, popular Wrigleyville hang-out Pick Me Up Cafe will move to 4882 N. Clark St.
