Exhibit on Superior

Chicago, IL

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.

Catering to the creative professional, the edgy interior of this residential building creatively uses a concept of “smart-living” throughout the entire tower.

The artistic, textured residential lobby entrance provides an open communication between the building’s indoor and outdoor presence. Outside, a park features extensive landscaping and a dog run that is accessible to the public.

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. Additional amenities include a spa, sauna, fitness center, arcade games, quiet library zone, and lounge that all have direct access to the landscaped podium roof deck and outdoor lap pool.

This project is LEED Gold certified.
