Cascade Chicago

Chicago, IL

Cascade is one of three buildings within the Parcels IJKL at Lakeshore East development, designed as a composed and connective urban development within City of Chicago. The placement of this 37-story multifamily tower is positioned to provide optimal access to light for all 503 units, as well as views to the lake, river, and newly implemented Cascade Park.

Cascade’s design responds to the natural elements of the site’s context, similar to the other projects in the master plan, expressed in a fluid massing and the reflection of a continuous glass façade. The project is individualized by copper metal expression panels on the exterior of the building, as well as a sharp and chic interior.

In addition to the dark, edgy interior design, both the layout and amenities in Cascade are framed around community. The tower’s pool deck rises six feet above the park level, offering some of the most panoramic views of skyline and new park, ideal for shared experience among residents and their guests. The project also features multiple communal lounges throughout and shared fire pits on the roof deck, all designed with interaction as the core inspiration.
