A complete renovation of the historic Lantow Pharmacy building at 502 Seventh Street, in Rockford, Illinois, featuring seven upscale, urban condos located above a coffee bar/bookstore with a high-tech community meeting area.
When ZION Development bought the three-story, 100+-year-old building at 502 Seventh Street in 2000, the storefronts had been vacant for over a year and the 12 apartments upstairs were shabby. ZION intentionally seeks buildings that are problematic for the market to renovate but that possess great architectural charm, are structurally sound, and are good candidates for urban renewal – the ultimate recycling opportunity. With a solid limestone foundation and old-growth lumber for framing throughout the building, Lantow fits the profile. The old brick walls, 12-foot ceilings, 8-foot-tall windows and trendy one- and two-bedroom floor plans mark the Lantow Lofts as among the most unique and appealing in the City.

Green From the Ground Up
Lantow Lofts represents MidTown Rockford’s first market-rate housing development in decades. ZION Development has also designed it as a “green” demonstration site. As the winner of the first annual Winnebago County Green Business award, ZION has utilized both geothermal and solar technology in this project. Residents will appreciate energy savings, and visitors to Katie’s Cup coffeebar will see wall-mounted monitors displaying the real-time impact of the alternative energy sources.
