We’ve had our eye on the building – located at 160 N Elizabeth Street – for a couple of years now, and Fulbrix’s development has been fun to see come together. The name Fulbrix is a nod to the neighborhood’s history. “Ful”, after Fulton Market, and “Brix” after the bricks that constructed the neighborhood’s historic warehouses.

Modern New Apartments in Fulton Market
If you want to lease an apartment in downtown Chicago and hope to move into a new place, Fulbrix is the one! Located right on the border of Fulton Market and West Loop, you can claim either neighborhood as your own. Walk to West Loop’s restaurant row (it’s just a block south!) or wander north and explore all the fun Fulton Market has to offer.
Developed and designed by local powerhouse Moceri + Roszak, Fulbrix was certainly in good hands. The firm’s diverse portfolio – including nearby Parkline apartments – showcases everything from stunning residential homes to high-rise apartments. Moceri + Roszak’s signature sleek design and clean lines are all over Fulbrix.
Fulbrix’s Ultra-Cool New Apartments
So what are the apartments like at Fulbrix? In a word: polished.
The apartments at Fulbrix give a nod to the neighborhood’s warehouse roots, but with a modern twist. They boast open floor plans and huge windows that make every unit feel airy and spacious. And the finishes are exactly what you’d expect from a luxury apartment in Fulton Market.
The standout details in Fulbrix’s apartments include:
- Exposed concrete ceilings
- Dark wood grain flooring
- Matte grey and white kitchen cabinetry
- Quartz countertops
- Stainless steel appliances
- Grohe and American Standard fixtures
- Large closets
- Large balconies on select units
- Huge windows with roller shades
If your heart wants to rent a vintage warehouse-style loft, but your head knows a luxury apartment building is the way to go, Fulbrix gives you the best of both worlds.
The kitchens are outfitted with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and chic minimalist styling. Two-tone cabinets and glossy subway tile keep the kitchen aesthetic clean and simple. And since each floor plan is open-concept, you can gaze out your huge floor-to-ceiling windows while you toast your morning bagel.
Fulbrix’s apartments might win you over with their glossy countertops and sky-high views, but it’s the details you’ll use every day that make these units so livable. Laundry isn’t as cool as those exposed concrete ceilings, but having a washer and dryer in your apartment is a true luxury. The storage – including spacious kitchen cabinets and closets (huge walk-in closets in several floor plans), help get you organized and keep your new apartment looking uncluttered.
Floor Plan Options at Fulbrix Apartments
Just like the finishes and design details, the floor plans at Fulbrix are made for modern living. Intent on maximizing space – even in their most affordable apartments – these apartment layouts are brilliantly designed for your work-hard, play-hard lifestyle.
The available floor plans at Fulbrix include:
New Studio Apartments in Fulton Market
Studios are a popular choice in this area, and Fulbrix has met the neighborhood’s need for more affordable units. Take a tour and check out several studio and convertible floor plans – each with a slightly different layout, but the same modern features and finishes.
This 548-square-foot studio apartment at Fulbix has enough space and storage to live comfortably. I love that it has separate living zones carved out, and a wall that cuts the kitchen off from the sleeping area. A spacious closet and in-unit washer and dryer are an extra dose of convenience.
Fulbrix’s designers also understood that renters want enough space in their apartments to work from home. It’s not always possible in a studio, but this unit pulls it off beautifully. Set up your home office in your new Fulbrix studio and enjoy views of downtown Chicago – you’ll be the envy of all your coworkers!
Large One Bedroom Apartments in Fulton Market
How does a little more space sound? Fulbrix has some apartments with really large footprints, and this one-bedroom unit is a real surprise – it’s huge!
Step in and you’ll immediately be drawn in by the huge windows that let natural light flood the open-concept living space. Made for entertaining, the kitchen is massive, with island seating for 4 and room for a large table in the adjacent dining space.
Select units in Fulbrix do have balconies, including this one. Located right off the indoor living area, you can create a cozy outdoor set-up with a couple of lounge chairs or a bistro table. Morning coffee with a view sounds pretty sweet, right?
You’ll also love having conveniences like a walk-in closet, an enormous shower, and yes – a space for working from home!
Building Amenities at Fulbrix Apartments
Can you see yourself living at Fulbrix? I’m about to make the move an even easier decision. Let’s walk through the building amenities you’ll enjoy every day when you sign a lease to rent here.
The amenity spaces are so cool – really beautifully designed and equal parts fun and functional. They include:
- Co-working and business center
- Outdoor work cabanas
- Golf simulator
- Media lounge
- Outdoor pool and spa
- Zen garden
- Outdoor terrace with entertainment areas
- Cabanas and fire pits
- Fitness center and yoga studio
- Dog run and pet spa
The Rooftop Entertaining Area at Fulbrix Apartments
I have to gush about the outdoor space first – it’s just too good! Again, the designers smartly divided the space into different zones. Party by the pool, entertain in the outdoor kitchen space, or get some work done in one of the outdoor work cabanas.
And check out that view – the developer knew exactly where to place the terrace and the result is picturesque views. You can see from West Loop to downtown to South Loop and beyond.
Around the corner, the rooftop pool and spa will be calling your name all summer. The contemporary design, including black metal cabanas and mod lounge furniture, is resort-inspired and super chic.
Work Hard, Play Hard at Fulbrix Apartments
I’m telling you – these post-pandemic apartment buildings are a whole new breed! Not only are amenity spaces back in a big way, but there’s a huge focus on providing the kind of spaces renters really want and use every day.
The Fulton Market neighborhood is a business hub, but with employers offering hybrid and work-from-home options, Fulbrix knew that coworking areas had to be a priority.
Office and coworking spaces are scattered throughout the building, and there’s a dedicated business center too. New apartment buildings in Chicago keep raising the bar on work-from-home offices and this is one of the best. Decked out with private offices and conference rooms, this space was designed with just one thing in mind – work!
If you want a change of scenery, hop into the library or media lounge for a casual vibe. And on those first days of spring when you’re itching to put in that last-minute PTO and sit on the rooftop deck, bring your laptop along instead! Fulbrix has outdoor work cabanas, designed to let you get some work done while enjoying fresh air and sun too.
The gym at Fulbrix is pretty awesome too, with everything you need to stay fit. While some apartment gyms skimp on equipment, Fulbrix had an eye on what residents want – weights! The gym is outfitted with weight machines, benches, and free weights. Plus, it has all the cardio options too. And, there’s a sunshine-filled yoga room where you can take a class or stream online.
