A full opening is imminent for Old Town Park Phase Three, the third installation of Onni Group‘s mixed-use development in Near North Side. Located at 228 W Hill Street, the near-complete 41-story tower will house a combination of retail, office space, 450 apartments, and six townhouses.
The apartment units will range from convertibles to two-bedrooms. Convertibles begin at $2,000 and span 505 square feet. One-bedroom units begin at $2,779 and range in size from 568 to 786 square feet, including balcony space. Finally, two-bedrooms are priced from $3,521 and span between 915 to 1,269 square feet. Townhome units also accommodate two bedrooms and are priced at $7,500. The remaining available townhome layout is 2,620 square feet. Old Town Park Phase III also includes 55 affordable units via the ARO program. Lastly, the marketing website mentions penthouses in the third tower, though no plans or additional details have been listed.
Apartments come with various in-unit features such as expansive windows with roller shades and 7.5″ wood flooring. The kitchens will come with European flat panel cabinetry, Blomberg and Fulgor Milano appliances, and granite slab waterfall countertops. Baths will offer residents glass-encased showers, composite stone vanity countertops, and large format tiles. Select layouts will also come with balcony spaces. Meanwhile, each of the townhouse residences will come with three habitable floors, ground-level patios, a third-floor terrace, and a private garage.
Residents will find a multitude of amenities, most notably an expansive outdoor deck with a heated pool, a hot tub, loungers, daybeds, grass areas, fire pits, a bocce ball court, outdoor play areas, and various kitchen spaces. Additionally, Phase Three will offer a full spa with steam, sauna, and jacuzzi spaces, various sports courts, a two-lane bowling alley, a sports lounge, and a fully-equipped fitness center. Lastly, the 26th floor will host a covered terrace area with an outdoor bar and fireplaces, a demonstration kitchen, and an attached private dining room. Parking will yield 193 accessory spaces in an indoor garage.
Onni’s larger Old Town Park development contains an additional 31- and 40-story tower, along with the renovation of the existing nine-story Atrium Village Complex. The surrounding land includes a drive up court, various gardens, and open grass areas.
Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is responsible for the overall masterplan, as well as the design of each building. The 447-foot-tall Old Town Park Phase Three adapts to the style of the other towers with reflective glass, metal accents and paneling, as well as the recessed balconies to add further depth to the facade.
The Old Town Park site is situated amongst various transportation options. Closest bus transit can be found for Route 70 at the intersection of Division & Wells, located at the northeast corner of the development. Also nearby are stops for Routes 22, 36, 37, and 156. For the CTA L, occupants and visitors have access to the Red Line at Clark / Division, a five-minute walk northeast. The Brown and Purple Lines, meanwhile, can be found at Chicago station via an 11-minute walk southwest.
The project lies in the vicinity of various points of interest, such as Seward Park one block west and Washington Square Park via a nine-minute walk southeast. A dense collection of retail and dining options also line the nearby Wells Street.
Onni Group is also serving as general contractor for the construction. Since the last update from late March, most of the remaining cladding and landscaping work has crossed the finish line. Tower move-ins are expected to begin early next month.
