16-Story Complex May Rise Over Sherman Avenue Restaurants

Albion Residential has requested a zoning analysis from the City of Evanston for a development it is proposing for 1454-1508 Sherman Ave., the property now occupied primarily by Tommy Nevin’s pub and Prairie Moon Restaurant.

The company proposes to build a 16-story (182-foot), mixed-use development above the present commercial sites, with 10,000 square feet of retail, 298 rental units, 192 parking spaces, and a 4,000 square-foot park. 

As proposed there would be 133 studio units and 56 convertible units; the remainder would be variations of one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom plus den units.

In a statement released on April 16, Prairie Moon owner Robert Strom said he is working with Albion to have a restaurant at the present location once the project is complete. During the construction period, Prairie Moon will relocate. “Our plan right now is to open a new concept in Evanston and then open an updated Prairie Moon in the new development,” he said.

According to its website, Albion Residential “specializes in the acquisition and development of luxury rental apartments in various urban Midwest markets.”
