Belgravia Group has released nine residences for immediate move-in at Renelle on the River, the developer’s 18-story, 50-unit luxury condominium building nestled along the Chicago River and immediately west of the iconic Wrigley Building.
The nine homes, which range in size from 2,249 to 3,434 square feet and are located on floors 3 through 10, are priced from $1,395,900 to $2,495,000. Located at 403 N. Wabash Ave., Renelle on the River was designed as a glass tower by bKL Architects to maximize views of the Chicago River from all residential units. McHugh Construction served as the general contractor.
One of the available homes is a 10th-floor corner residence with three bedrooms, 3½ baths and hand-selected custom paint, wallpaper, closet build-outs and window treatments with motorized shades. The home was curated by Buzz Ruttenberg, founder of Belgravia and an avid art collector. The floor plan features a gourmet kitchen, dining room, oversized terrace and separate family and living rooms. The unit spans the entire south side of the building with floor-to-ceiling windows facing east, south and west, affording stunning views of the Chicago River and many of the city’s architectural landmarks.
“These final homes at Renelle on the River offer an exceptional opportunity for discerning buyers who are seeking a spacious city home with elegant style that they can settle into in time for the upcoming holidays,” said David Goldman, co-CEO of Belgravia. “And with only three to four residences per floor, Renelle is an exceptional opportunity for buyers seeking a more boutique building that lends itself to social distancing without sacrificing a sense of community.”
Built on one of the last parcels of land along this stretch of the Chicago River, and just steps from Michigan Avenue, Renelle on the River is a peaceful oasis with no retail, hotel or apartment component, offering privacy, comfort and peace of mind to the building’s residents. According to Liz Brooks, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Belgravia Group, Renelle has proven popular with buyers throughout the pandemic, with its two most recent sales closing after Labor Day.
“The same qualities that made Renelle so desirable to buyers seeking a sophisticated maintenance-free city home pre-pandemic are even more appealing now,” said Brooks. “From its discrete entrance off Wabash, to the fact that there are only 50 residences, the building is quite intimate, so there’s not a lot of coming and going of big crowds. Our homeowners know each other and take a lot of comfort in being able to enjoy and appreciate the well-appointed amenity spaces—including the rooftop terrace with firepit—with ease.”
Building amenities at Renelle on the River include a 24-hour door attendant, state-of-the-art fitness center with private yoga room, bicycle storage and an outdoor dog run. On the 18th floor is an exclusive suite of owner amenities, including a game room, screening room and kitchen, as well as an expansive 4,500-square-foot rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen, firepit and several separate seating and dining areas, so multiple residents can use the space while maintaining comfortable social distancing.
All immediate-delivery residences in the building have been designed with high-end finishes, including Snaidero Cabinets, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, Dornbrach faucets, Victoria and Albert freestanding tubs and Carlisle wood floors. Homes also come with graciously defined spaces, oversized kitchen islands, 10-foot ceilings, formal foyers, abundant gallery walls for artwork, generous walk-in closets, large laundry rooms, private balconies or terraces, and floor-to-ceiling windows in every room. Belgravia also includes a one-year warranty with all homes and provides a customer care team to service homes after move-in.
