The mixed-use tower at 741 N Wells Street in River North is nearing the end of its construction phase, with the last of the facade installation now underway. Developed by Vista Property, the 21-story building spans 201,000 square feet and will feature 168 apartments atop 4,000 square feet of ground-level retail.
Once complete, the tower will stand at 255 feet and offer a range of floor plan sizes, including 50 studios, 101 one-bedroom units, and 17 two-bedrooms. The apartments will be equipped with nine-foot-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Residents can expect a variety of amenities such as a rooftop terrace with a pool, co-working spaces, and a fitness center. Additionally, the building will contain parking for 53 vehicles and storage for 150 bicycles.
Antunovich Associates, the architectural firm behind the project, has designed a facade featuring loft-inspired windows, dark metal elements, overhanging balconies, and a serrated exterior along Wells Street. The top floor is set back from the south to allow for the pool deck.
In terms of transportation, the site is closely connected to several bus options, such as Routes 22, 66, and 156, all within a five-minute walking distance. The Chicago Station, serving the CTA Brown and Purple Lines, is a two-minute walk west. Additionally, the Chicago station for the Red Line is a seven-minute walk to the east to State & Lake.
Overseen by general contractor Skender, the project has an estimated budget of $48 million. Leasing is expected to begin starting next year.
