Millennium on LaSalle is a luxury apartment rental building in the Loop’s financial district and was originally built in 1902 as the National Life Building, which was designed by Jenney and Mundie. The 13-story building was recently converted from an office building, most recently known as Barrister Hall, into an amenity-rich residential property. The 216 units will include studio, one, and two bedroom apartments as wel as 7,000 square feet of retail space in the ground level.
The contemporary units will have sleek, elegant finishes. Kitchens will feature stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, premium Italian cabinetry, a tile backsplash, and an in-unit washer and dryer. Bathrooms will have marble tile and premium lighting.
Units will also have hardwood throughout and be outfitted with smart home technology. Technology features include integrated USB power sources, a pre-wired media hub, and integrated Bluetooth audio.
The fourteenth floor will feature a portion of the resident amenities including a pool, sports court, fitness center, common lounge, and a landscaped rooftop terrace with grilling stations.
The lower level will house a media screening theatre, two gaming media rooms, a computer room with co-working space, and a music rehearsal and recording room. Residents will also have access to many conveniences on the lower level, including valet dry cleaning and wash-and-fold service, additional storage, 24-hour maintenance, and bike amenities—which include bike storage, a workshop, part and supply vending, as well as other resources.
Pet amenities include a dog run on the fourteenth floor and a dog spa on the lower level.
The renovated lobby will provide a “modern aesthetic within the historic marble-clad space” according to the architecture firm on the job, Fitzgerald Associates. Residents will have a morning coffee lounge on the first floor, as well as outdoor café-style seating, pending approval.
