Onni Development Group is behind the 410-foot-tall tower, which will house a total of 373 apartment dwellings. These units will vary widely in size, beginning at 400-square-foot studios and span up to 1,600 square feet for three-bedroom penthouses. Amenities will include a sprawling third-level pool deck and a host of interior common areas.
Updated renderings and plans have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 640 W Washington Boulevard in West Loop Gate.
