Big! Bold! And…Beautiful! The sky-high apartments going up at 2111 S Wabash in Chicago’s McCormick Square area are slated to debut in 2020. With construction now underway, the glassy facade and flashy sawtooth design are beginning to take shape. We think this luxury building is going to be a South Loop head-turner!
The largest residential development in South Loop since 2010, the 24-story tower will deliver 275 rental units to help meet the area’s growing housing demand. Located less than a block from CTA’s Cermak/McCormick Place Green Line station, it’ll join South Loop’s transit-oriented development trend.
Design and Development Dynamics
You really can’t go wrong with Chicago-based Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the mastermind behind the design. SCB is notorious for his creative and unique vision, forward-focused planning, and talent for innovative skyline impact. Some of his past luxury apartments in downtown Chicago include: Moment, Sinclair, and 1001 S State.
Local experts Draper & Kramer have the development side covered.
Fabulous. Inside and Out
The ultra-modern design of the tower is stunning with its asymmetric base and extruding glass face that jets out, capturing a prismatic effect on the outside and creating functional nooks inside the individual residences.
Ranging from 529 to 1,411 square feet, the units will be available in 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom floor plans. Open layouts coupled with floor-to-ceiling windows will give way to breathtaking panoramic views in every direction.
High-end finishes will not be lacking in these new apartments in South Loop. Trendy plank flooring and modern kitchens will include all the bells and whistles like European-style cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and quartz countertops.
We expect unit rent prices will start at $1,800 per month for a 1-bedroom.
On the fourth floor, 25,000 square-feet is devoted to amenities which include a swanky club lounge complete with a bar, co-working space, a game room, a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studios, and dedicated music rooms where residents can practice and perform.
Outside on the terrace, a swimming pool awaits. Lush landscaping outlines dining and grilling stations with cabanas and fire pits.
We anticipate this community will be joining the other pet-friendly apartments in South Loop to accommodate dogs and other furry friends. With lake trails just a tail-wag away, these apartments just might be the perfect new home for you and your pet.
This convenient location is a quick 10-minute walk from just about everything.
Trader Joe’s, Jewel Osco, CVS, and Target are super handy.
Pizano’s Pizza & Pasta, Chicago Oyster House, La Cantina, and Opart Thai House are some of the many eateries in the neighborhood.
Reggie’s Chicago is a local favorite to kick back to some live rock and roll. The Velvet Lounge is a hot spot too.
