If you haven’t noticed, there is much development all over the city of Chicago, but especially in the trendy and prospering West Loop. Union West at 933 W Washington is co-developed by ZOM Living and Verde Communities and designed by bKL Architecture. The design firm is also responsible for Coast, Wolf Point West and Exhibit on Superior, so we’re definitely excited to see what’s in store for Union West. While pre-leasing begins this coming Spring and residents move in later this fall, this luxury community already boasts some serious bravado!
West Loop’s New Luxury Apartments
Located at the corner of Madison and Morgan, Union West’s two 15-story towers will offer 357 rental units, perched atop of a shared podium that houses 255 parking spots and roughly 12,000 square feet of retail space. Above the podium and between the towers is a landscaped amenity space, bridging the dual-towered community. Paying homage to Chicago’s architectural blend of new high rises and old industrial, the structure features a glass top portion and is anchored by a brick base.
What To Expect:
Union West will offer Studio, Convertible, 1 Bed, 2 Bed, 3 Bed floorplans as well as coveted Penthouse units. Standard fixtures will include:
- European style kitchen with quartz countertops and Italian cabinetry
- Floor-to-ceiling windows
- 9’ ceilings
- Plank flooring
- Private terraces in select units
- Keyless entry system
Based on the renderings, the podium that sits between the two towers will house an outdoor pool with lounge seating and cabanas, plus a private landscaped sundeck featuring private seating and BBQ grills.
West Loop Location
Let’s not overlook Union West’s prime location. West Loop is known for its trendy restaurants, art galleries, and shopping, but its convenience is pretty stellar. Within walking distance (about 5-10 minutes) is Restaurant Row, Whole Foods, Mariano’s and CTA’s Morgan station for all your commuting needs.
We’ve got a few local spots you definitely shouldn’t miss in West Loop:
City Winery is a 30,000 square foot venue offering an extensive collection of wines and beers, in addition to fine Mediterranean cuisine. The space is home to a variety of events: from culinary & wine classes and tastings to live entertainment. Give their pulled lamb sandwich a go, you will not be disappointed!
Au Cheval is an upscale “diner” and bar serving up divine burgers and fried chicken with a twist (check out general jane’s honey fried chicken with chili, cilantro and sesame seeds). This trendy spot has a refined and edited beer collection and offers dairy and gluten-free menus.
With its farm-to-table menu, The Publican offers seafood and pork-focused dishes and global brews. Reminiscent of European brew halls, communal seating is what anchors this hip spot. You can’t go wrong with any of their seafood fares, but don’t miss out on Sunday brunch!
