River West Luxury Apartments Now Standing Above the Rest at Avenir

It’s like the new apartments in River West couldn’t wait to reach up and grab the title of the neighborhood’s highest building. Groundbreaking just began at Avenir about 12 months ago, but progress has been astoundingly ahead of schedule.  

With the vertical construction now complete, Avenir is really taking shape…and you should see it!  

The Emergence of a Masterpiece 

Designed by Antunovich Associates and developed by Tandem Partners and Rambaud Holdings, these downtown Chicago luxury apartments were destined for greatness from the very beginning.

Magnificently located on Milwaukee Avenue and Carpenter Street, this 23-story glassy brick-based building creatively wraps around an already existing three-story structure for a transit-oriented development that will include 226 apartment units. Ninety-seven parking stalls and 2,300 square feet of retail space are underway too.  

An existing 40,000-square-foot-office building immediately south of the tower will be incorporated into the development. An existing 3-story loft-construction office building will be updated to meet current “white box” standards with new MEP systems and elevator upgrades.

Although this new building was originally called “The Mill”, it’s now been dubbed “Avenir”, a name that suits its character quite well. 

What’s in Store

When designers and developers like these get together, you can count on lots of innovative use of space and a whole host of upscale features.  

An elegant residential lobby on the first floor will welcome you home, while state-of-the-art amenity spaces will entertain and serve you while you’re there.  

Rendering suggests a garden-graced rooftop green spaces on both the 5th and 11th floors.

We anticipate this residence will join the rest of the pet-friendly apartments in River West in making your four-legged friend feel right at home. 

We can’t wait to see what else these new luxury apartments in Chicago’s River West will reveal as they continue to unfold. 

Best-in-the-West Location

River West sits just outside of Fulton and West Loop neighborhoods, with Milwaukee Ave, one of Chicago’s “diagonal streets” runs through the heart for easy and quick access. This enclave neighborhood offers a select, but high-quality selection of restaurants and quality bars.

Start your day with a cup of Joe from Big Shoulders and grab a fresh glazed donut from Dunkin’.  Both are minutes from your doorstep. Just down the street, you’ll find Matchbox, the coolest tiny bar in the Windy City, where you can unwind with a hand-shaken cocktail. 

No need to panic if you’re down to your last squirt of toothpaste or feel a cold coming on, CVS is a quick 10-minute walk.

If you’ve got places to go, dash on down to the CTA Chicago Blue Line station at the corner of Chicago and Milwaukee- it’s right in the heart of the ‘hood.
