Construction has surpassed the third level for Embry, a 15-story condominium development situated at 21 N May Street near the center of West Loop. Planned by Sulo Development, the high rise will contain a total of 58 for-sale units ranging from two- to four-bedroom houses and ranging in size from 1,828 to 5,187 square feet. The construction of this 207-foot-tall building will fill the space of an old, vacant lot where a two-story masonry structure used to stand.
According to a December 2021 Crain’s article, available unit prices for two-bedrooms start at $2 million, three-bedrooms at $2.3 million, and four-bedrooms at $2.8 million. Some of the unit layouts will be multi-level duplexes, and most residences will have an extra den space.
Kara Mann, the lead designer of the condo interiors, has curated a range of paint choices. Natural wood elements, extra wide wood plank flooring, an Atelier Jouvence fireplace, arched doorways, high ceilings, spacious hallways, and a prep area connected to the kitchen are just a few of the interior features included. Miele, Subzero, and Wolf will be among the brands represented in the kitchen appliances.
Other notable building features include a double-height lobby, 7,000 square feet of common amenity space, an open-air deck with fire pit, indoor/outdoor fitness center and putting green, and a resident lounge.
Lamar Johnson Collaborative‘s design exudes a sense of modern majesty with Art Deco influence. The massing features numerous terraced setbacks and recessed balconies, as well as dark metal spandrels and textured bronze panels on the outside.
For residents looking to take the bus, there are stops for Route 20 just southeast of the intersection of Madison & Aberdeen. Route 8 is also available within 10 minutes by walking east to Halsted & Madison. For those preferring the train, CTA L trains can be caught at Morgan station via a nine-minute walk northeast or Racine station via a 10-minute walk southwest.
The project is being built by McHugh Constection. Work is now in full swing, and sales are set to begin soon; a comprehensive finish is anticipated for spring 2023.
