If you’ve had your eye on a move to Chicago’s Fulton Market District, I have good news. This pocket neighborhood in the West Loop, which has seen tremendous growth over the past several years, is home to a brand-new luxury apartment building. After much anticipation, One Six Six apartments will welcome new residents in late spring of 2023.
The newest luxury apartment building in Fulton Market, One Six Six stands 21 stories tall at 166 N. Aberdeen Street. The glassy building holds 224 spanking new apartments and has retail space waiting to be leased on the ground level.
WHO DEVELOPED ONE SIX SIX APARTMENTS?
Chicago real estate developer MCZ Development was the original team behind the One Six Six project. They saw potential in the building site – a former Fabbri sausage plant – and got the project off the ground in 2019. But in late 2021, the building was sold to international real estate developer and property manager, Greystar for a cool $16 million.
Architecture, design, and planning firm SCB took the lead on the design of One Six Six. Nationally known for their work on luxury apartments, cool corporate offices, and retail spaces, SCB knocked Six One One’s design out of the park.
THE AMENITIES AT ONE SIX SIX LUXURY APARTMENTS
In this post-Covid world, a focus on shared community spaces in luxury apartments is back, and I’m thrilled! SCB created indoor and outdoor amenities at One Six Six that you’ll enjoy on the daily.
ENTERTAINMENT SPACES AT ONE SIX SIX
Here in Chicago, we gobble up all the outdoor time we can, so having space outside to enjoy is a must. Take one look at the third-floor deck at One Six Six, and imagine yourself soaking in the summer sun and floating in the luxury rooftop pool. The resort-style outdoor lounge is an excellent space for entertaining too. Invite your friends over to hang out in a private cabana, then host dinner under the stars.
Not only does One Six Six have the prettiest rooftop deck in all of Fulton Market, the indoor lounges – yes, as in multiple spaces – are really stunning. If you’re an entertainer, your favorite space will be the private dining room, which includes a culinary kitchen. Or, host a poker night in the game room. Even the lobby is beautiful, with a fireplace and cozy lounge chairs ready to welcome you home each day.
FITNESS AND COWORKING AMENITIES AT ONE SIX SIX
One of the most coveted luxury amenities in any apartment building is a fitness center, and One Six Six delivers. The athletic club has everything you need to stay in shape and sweat it out. It’s stacked with Echelon bikes, treadmills, free weights, and even a punching bag.
If you’re looking for an apartment near West Loop with a great coworking space, One Six Six is it. Located on the first floor, the shared office space has several seating options and is decked out with everything you need to work comfortably. Collaborate with coworkers around the conference table or shut out distractions in one of the private offices. I think the very best feature of all though, is the bank of windows that keeps the space full of natural light.
THE BEST DOG-FRIENDLY APARTMENT IN FULTON MARKET
Yes – One Six Six welcomes you and your dog. And, it caters to them too.
Living downtown with a dog is easier than ever, with dog-friendly amenities becoming more common in luxury apartments in Chicago.
