Wolf Point East, going up in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, introduced the Lake Collection and the Penthouse Collection. The upper-tier floors have upgraded finishes, unparalleled views and consist of expansive floor plans ranging from junior one-bedroom units through three-bedroom rental residences.
“Wolf Point East is one of the more unique apartment towers we have delivered across our global portfolio,” said Will Renner, managing director at Hines. “We are energized by the response so far and look forward to welcoming more residents into newly released units in the building.”
Units located on floors 41 through 55 are part of the Lake Collection and range from $2,695 to $5,605 per month. Select units have already been reserved and residents will begin moving into these units in mid-May. Luxury Living Chicago Realty is exclusively marketing and leasing Wolf Point East and is offering a personalized remote leasing experience during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The Penthouse Collection Units are located on floors 56 through 58. There are only six units per floor that are a unique blend of larger layouts averaging 1,700 square feet. Residents will begin moving into these units in July which offer a differentiated design aesthetic, a long list of unique features and unparalleled views.
Pre-leasing began in November 2019 and first move-ins occurred in January 2020. The 698-unit luxury apartment building offers studio to three-bedroom penthouse floor plans. Studios start at $2,095 per month up to two-bedroom units, which start at $3,995 per month.
“Wolf Point East offers a unique matrix of iconic architecture, unparalleled city views, location and luxury finishes designed for today’s modern renter,” said Aaron Galvin, CEO and founder of Luxury Living Chicago Realty. “Wolf Point East raises the bar for urban apartment living in Chicago while exuding warmth and elegance in the thoughtfully designed floor plans and community-enhancing amenities.”
Wolf Point East also announced the completion of the building amenity program comprising over three floors. The inviting amenities include a full-floor fitness center, a co-working space, an outdoor dog run and elegant gathering spaces for dining and entertaining. The third floor features The Sports Club complete with social games, a golf lounge and an indoor pool with NanaWall system that fully opens onto a furnished sundeck overlooking the Chicago River.
One of the highlights of the amenity spaces is the Mirror Lounge, a unique gathering space with unparalleled views of the Chicago southern skyline, outdoor grills and a private entertaining kitchen. The amenity interiors and model units have been curated by Soucie Horner Ltd.
“Our design for the interior and amenity spaces was all about creating a sense of urban serenity that not only complements the building’s exterior, but also celebrates its unique riverfront location and historic importance to the city of Chicago,” said Shea Soucie, co-founder and principal of Soucie Horner, Ltd. “That meant modern, elegant, comfortable style inspired as much by what makes the building so special, as by the lessons we’ve learned over twenty years designing for the luxury residential market. Applying that inspiration, and that expertise—in collaboration with ownership and the architecture team—made it all sing.”
Wolf Point East is designed by internationally renowned Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects in partnership with Pappageorge Haymes Partners. The development team is composed of Hines, Wolf Point Owners LLC and the AFL-CIO Building Investment Trust.
