Construction has reached the 11th level for Embry, a 15-story condominium development situated at 21 N May Street in West Loop. Sulo Development has planned the high rise, which will contain 58 units available for sale. These houses come in two- to four-bedroom varieties and range in size from 1,828 square feet to 5,187 square feet. This new 207-foot tall building will occupy the space of an old, vacant lot where a smaller two-story masonry structure used to be located.
According to Crain’s December 2021 article, available two-bedroom unit prices start at $2 million, three-bedrooms at $2.3 million, and four-bedrooms at $2.8 million. Some units will be multi-level duplexes, and most residences will have an extra den space in addition to the main living rooms.
The interior design by Kara Mann, has a range of paint schemes to choose from. Other in-unit amenities consist of natural wood elements, extra wide wood plank flooring, an Atelier Jouvence fireplace, arched doorways, high ceilings, and spacious hallways. The kitchen appliances will include brands such as Miele Subzero and Wolf among others.
Within the 7,000 square feet of common areas, there will be an open-air deck with a fire pit, an indoor/outdoor fitness center, a putting green, and a resident lounge.
The design of Lamar Johnson Collaborative blends contemporary architecture with West Loop’s industrial influence and notes of Art Deco style. The exterior features an array of terraced setbacks, inset balconies, and textured bronze metal paneling.
