If you’re wondering what is being built at Wolf Point, the small peninsula where the North, South and East branches of the river meet, that would be Wolf Point East, River North’s newest luxury apartment building that broke ground in June 2018. Based on what we know about Wolf Point West, which opened in 2016, we’re really excited to see what Wolf Point East will have to offer.
What Can You Expect?
We already know that Wolf Point East will have 60 luxurious stories and 698 various layouts with unobstructed views. Residents can choose between a studio, convertible, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom or 3-bedroom layout. The existing Wolf Point West stands at 48 stories ― that gives you a really good visual of how these two towers are going to change the community in such a positive way.
We also know that Wolf Point East will offer 40,000 square feet of amenities on floors six, three and forty. What does that mean? Imagine Soldier Field, end zone to end zone, filled with an outdoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, business lounge, gourmet kitchen, dog run, golf simulator and so much more. The Chicago Riverwalk will see significant beautification in this area, including new landscaping, a waterfront park, and retail shops.
We haven’t mentioned Wolf Point South, but we’ll leave that for another day, as the ground hasn’t broken just yet. If you’ve been in this area of River North before, you’re familiar with the Merchandise Mart, the East Bank Club and many bars and restaurants that the community has to offer. This part of River North is a short walk across the Kinzie Street Bridge to Fulton River Market District and West Loop. The Franklin Bridge will take you to the Loop, so anyone looking for an easy commute, look no further!
