This project by Belgravia Group and JRG Capital Partners will yield 72 total condominium units, divided between four separate layouts. Of these layouts, there will be one three-bedroom layout and three four-bedroom layouts.
The sole three-bedroom option (referred to as “Typical Plan”) comes with three full-sized bathrooms, two balconies, and an office. These units span 2,160 square feet and begin at $836,000.
The second of the four options is the four-bedroom “End-Unit Plan”, equipped with four full-sized bathrooms and two balconies. Residents will have the option to extend the main area into what would be the fourth bedroom, or replace the fourth bedroom with a media room. These two other variations shrink the fourth full bath into a powder room and use the extra space to carve out a small office. Regardless of the configuration, this floor plan totals 2,390 square feet, with prices beginning at $1.25 million.
The remaining two options are each referred to as a “Duplex Penthouse”, both containing with two balconies, a family room, an alcove seating area, and a sizable private terrace. This second-level outdoor space comes with a built-in gas grill, a sink and countertop, longe space, and sweeping city views. Duplex Penthouse plans vary between 3,103 and 3,157 square feet, and begin at $1.66 million.
Interior features consist of 10-foot-high ceilings, a kitchen island, a walk-in closet in the master bedroom, and recessed lighting. Notably, all units except for the End-Unit Plan include light courts near the middle. Given the high length-to-width ratio, these window-lined shafts help provide more natural light to the bedrooms that do not directly face the street or alley.
Within the Typical Plan and End-Unit Plan kitchens are Bosch appliances, while each Penthouse Duplex offers Sub-Zero and Wolf. Quartz countertops can be found in both the kitchens and baths. Baths also come with walk-in showers, custom contemporary vanity cabinets, porcelain tiling, and frameless wall-mounted mirrors.
As far as amenities, the building will contain a fitness room, a co-working space with private and meeting areas, a secure package room, and a heated parking garage with 76 spaces.
With Sullivan, Goulette & Wilson Architects behind the design, the building’ brick aesthetic adapts easily to the surrounding neighborhood, while still exhibiting several stand-out aspects. Notably are fortress-like archways near ground level, expansive warehouse-inspired windows, and large vertical bays. Up close, the facade will involve a tan-hued face brick, complemented by dark welded metal trim.
Closest bus access comprises of Route 126, with eastbound service adjacently north at Jackson & Racine and westbound service adjacently south at Van Buren & Racine. Routes 7, 8, 55, and 60 are also within walking distance. For rail transit, residents will find access to the Blue Line via Racine station via a three-minute walk south. Racine station is just a four-minute ride from LaSalle station, the Blue Line’s first stop in the loop.
Since August’s article, the dramatic presence of the edifice has taken shape as the highest-reaching beams roughly outline the eventual roofline. The project is one of several recent residential projects to expand West Loop’s density further to the southwest, not even taking into account the massive wave of development on its northern end. With Maris Construction as the general contractor, this latest West Loop project is expected to open in 2022.
