The Space

Praxis Collaborative is located in the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA) building on the corner of Lawrence Ave. and Sheridan Rd. in Chicago’s diverse Uptown neighborhood. We are just two blocks from the Lawrence Red Line CTA stop, with easy access to downtown Chicago, Evanston, and beyond.

We have room for up to 19 tenants, with private bedrooms, three gender-neutral shared bathrooms, two shared kitchens, and other common living spaces. The building provides a room to store bikes, and members who drive may rent a parking space in the lot across the street.

The ICA building is home to a variety of religious and social service organizations, and the ICA itself is committed to environmental and economic sustainability. This means that fees paid by Praxis members go to support a local hub of community organizations instead of a for-profit landlord.

We are located on the fifth floor of a wheelchair-accessible office building with elevators. We invite potential applicants to contact us at to discuss any questions or concerns about our space.
