Two new luxury buildings, known as HUGO, are underway at 411 W Chicago and 751 N Hudson. HUGO (a blend of “Hudson” and “Chicago”) is expected to take about 18 months to complete and, between the two 10 story buildings, will feature a total of 227 luxury rental units, retail space, and amenities upon completion.
Each of the two buildings at HUGO will feature its own amenities. Both 751 N Hudson and 411 W Chicago will be equipped with dog runs, bike rooms, work from home pods, conference rooms, multiple common outdoor terraces, outdoor kitchens will grilling stations, 10th floor skyline amenity decks, and of course, state of the art fitness centers in each building. Additionally, each building will also feature its own unique outdoor spaces, with a 2nd floor outdoor pool deck, cabanas, and fire pits in 751 N Hudson and an extra large, landscaped sun deck with lounge chairs in 411 W Chicago. HUGO will also feature a total of over 18,000 square feet of ground level retail, although the specific commercial tenants have not been announced.
This western portion of River North, bordered by Chicago Ave to the north, Grand to the south, Orleans to the east, and the river to the west, has gained tremendous popularity in recent years. The immediately surrounding area was home to lavish mansions and privately owned condos, but didn’t have much by the way of managed rental buildings until Onni Group’s successful lease up of The Hudson, at 750 N Hudson adjacent to the site of HUGO. With the Groupon headquarters just a few blocks away as well a multitude of other new offices that have recently moved into the area, there has been increased demand for luxury rentals from those who want to live a hop and skip from work. This part of River North is also popular because it has a more quiet, tree-lined, residential neighborhood feel than you would get in the other more lively parts of River North further east. Although quieter, this area still offers the best of River North with excellent restaurants, parks, salons, and coffee shops tucked between each quaint street. It’s no mystery why so many people are eager to call this area home!
