This modern glass and masonry residential tower was inspired by the historical buildings in its surrounding River North neighborhood. Bordered on the north by Superior Street, on the west by Wells Street and on the east by LaSalle Street, the site includes a 34-story rental apartment tower with a 5-story podium. The 298 residential units occupy the tower and portions of the podium. Wrapping the perimeter of the second and third levels of the podium, they buffer the parking levels from the street.
In addition to the residential lobby, the ground level of the building consists of retail space with frontage on LaSalle and Superior streets, as well as a smaller retail space adjacent to the park. A fitness center, lounge and spa areas have direct access to the landscaped podium roof deck and outdoor lap pool.
Set back 80 feet from Wells Street, the property creates a new park with extensive landscaping and a dog run that is accessible to the public.
Catering to the creative professional, the edgy interior of this residential building creatively uses a concept of “smart-living” throughout the entire tower.
As the building features microunits, the 5th level amenity floor serves as an extended living space for residents. bKL designed multiple spatial uses to accommodate a variety of purposes, providing users the opportunity to reserve private work rooms for study spaces, event gatherings, as well as dining spaces.
