Exterior walls have reached the fourth floor of 1404 W Monroe Street, a seven-story residential building in West Loop. Developed by JK Equities and marketed as 1400 Monroe, the development will provide 42 condominium units, parking for 42 vehicles, and 22 reserved bike spaces.
Each residence will come with a private terrace or balcony, and include a mix of features such as MoJo Stumer interior design, Lutron Caseta smart home technology, recessed lighting, and precise airflow control. Kitchens will come with large islands, quartz countertops, and high-end appliances like Thermador, Bosch, and Kohler. Baths will also feature elements such as additional quartz counters, designer porcelain, and Kallista fixtures in the master bath.
Units prices range from around $600,000 for a two-bedroom unit, to over $1 million for three-bedrooms and $2 million for a four-bedroom penthouse. Floor space varies between 1,244 total square feet to 3,887 square feet for the larger penthouse layout with four bedrooms, five baths, and a rooftop terrace space.
Booth Hansen is the project architect, whose massing includes vertical bays with integrated balconies, as well as setbacks for the second-floor terraces. The exterior will utilize a gray-toned brick facade and warehouse-inspired windows with dark metal accents.
