Leopardo Companies, Inc. has completed at Ravenswood Station, a 240,000-square-foot retail center anchored by Mariano’s Fresh Market, LA Fitness and Sears Auto.
Located at 1800 W. Lawrence, the $43-million Ravenswood Station is directly across the street from the Ravenswood Metra station, which is also in the final stages of an upgrade. The 80,000-square-foot Mariano’s, reportedly the largest in the chain, includes unique features such as a wine bar, an oyster bar, a spice bar, a smoothie bar and a BBQ bar.
“Urban infill projects carry extra challenges, but there’s also an extra reward when you complete something the community is so enthusiastic about,” said Steve Smith, Vice President of Leopardo.
Ravenswood Station was built to LEED Silver certification standards with sustainability features that include permeable pavers, electric car charging stations, 80 bike racks, and a pre-vegetated modular green roofing system.
