Chicago-based developer Fifield Cos. announced that move-ins for the new 310-unit NEXT luxury apartment tower at 347 W. Chestnut St. in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, are scheduled for Sept. 1.
Favorable weather conditions have allowed crews to complete work three months ahead of the originally scheduled delivery date of early 2017.
“Since we broke ground last June on NEXT – one of the first high-rise apartment buildings to be constructed in this area, which was formerly zoned for manufacturing – the immediate area surrounding the building has seen an uptick in commercial development,” Steve Fifield, chairman of Fifield Cos., said. “This activity has made the neighborhood an even more exciting place to live due to its proximity to well-paying jobs, public transportation and expressways, and popular dining and entertainment options.”
Additional amenities will include an outdoor pool, spa and sun terrace, complete with cabanas, a fire pit and outdoor grilling kitchens with pergolas and seating. Residents will also have access to a state-of-the-art fitness club with an indoor/outdoor yoga studio; media room with oversized TV and surround sound; full demonstration kitchen; Starbucks coffee bar; gaming arcade; business center and conference room; pet grooming center; and a “bicycle kitchen” that will include bicycle storage, as well as supplies, tools and air pumps.
Individual residences at NEXT will feature 9-foot ceilings, oversized windows, plank flooring, quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, Grohe faucets, oak-faced flat paneled cabinets and GE stainless steel appliances. Select units also will include private balconies, master bedroom walk-in closets, frameless glass showers and double-bowl bathroom vanities.
