Nicole and her partner moved into one of the highly sought after live-work units at Thrive Exchange North. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Nicole is excited to start her bakery business in this ideal location with high visibility and street frontage. Nicole’s partner works in construction, which is how they first heard about this new apartment development. The location is perfect, since Nicole is a south sider who wants to live in a vibrant community near the lake and her family.
Leonard is relieved that his life has a little less stress now that he opened a bike shop a few blocks from his house at Exchange Crossing. This newly refurbished retail space enabled Leonard to fulfill his dream of owning his own business, and his short commute allows him to spend more time with his young child. Leonard knows if his child needs to see a doctor, it’s just a few steps to the Chicago Family Health Center in the restored Ringer Building to see a highly qualified doctor at an affordable price.
Tami recently moved into an apartment at Thrive Exchange North. She rides her bike to the lakefront and Rainbow Beach and uses the bicycle parking and repair shop located on the ground floor. She also enjoys the new bakery for her morning coffee. A frequent user of public transit, Tami rides the Metra Electric South Chicago line most mornings to her new job in Woodlawn near the Obama Presidential Center.
John had never been to South Shore or South Chicago but came for a nursing job at Chicago Family Health Center. Now, John and his family are considering buying one of the newly built condos by Revere Properties on Exchange Avenue. They thought they’d have to move to the suburbs to find such a beautiful home that they could afford. Instead, they’ll live across the street from the health center where John works.
ALFONSO AND RITA
Alfonso and Rita are life-long residents of South Chicago. They recently moved into a 2-bedroom apartment at the Thrive Exchange North building after selling their home of 40 years to their eldest daughter. No longer wanting the hassle of home maintenance, they’d looked at seniors’ buildings but found them missing their young energy. Alfonso and Rita enjoy the convenience of taking the Metra to downtown and Hyde Park and appreciate their home being in a safe, thriving community.
