SCIO at the Medical District

Chicago, IL

Located between the University Village, Little Italy and Illinois Medical District neighborhoods of Chicago, SCIO at the Medical District contains two 12-story buildings, each comprised of 205 residential units connected by a small entry pavilion with management offices. bKL designed the interior renovation of the two existing buildings and enlarged the central pavilion with a simple glass modernist enclosure, integrating the fabric of the existing buildings with the new mid-century modern inspired interior design.

The new 7,800 square foot amenity building is comprised of a new entrance lobby, a management and leasing office, a gym, study rooms, indoor lounge and gaming space. The outdoor amenity space includes a new pool, lounge area and barbecue grill stations. bKL additionally provided interior design services to renovate the residential corridors and apartment unit finishes.
