Excited about finding your new luxury apartment with superior views and rare waterfront access? River North will soon have a new face with the $1 Billion development of Wolf Point Towers. Located at the confluence of the North, South, and main branches of the Chicago River, the Wolf Point West Apartments will bring new energy to a re-imagined river front.
How expansive is the project? The triangular, almost peninsula like, river bend plot of land will be the new home to three towers. Of utmost interest to the downtown apartment market will be the Wolf Point’s West Apartments located at 326 N Orleans. This could be the site of your new luxury apartment should you choose to occupy one of the 500 luxury rentals in the 50 story (500 feet) residential rental property. Although exact spec finishes and the extensiveness of the building’s amenities are hazy given the current initial stage of construction, expect the finished product to live up to a certain lifestyle standard by way of the Kennedy’s. (*Wolf Point has been under Kennedy ownership since the 1940s.) The West Tower’s neighbors, The South Tower (950 feet tall) and East Tower (750 feet tall), will be mixed-use towers.
Location, location, location! I bet you have never thought of living in a downtown apartment with this location. Situated in a unique bend of River North, renters will have ease of access to all that is the fine nightlife and dining of River North, the shows and glamour of crossing the Chicago River into the Loop for the theater district (or work), and a row or two up the river from the exquisite tastes of restaurant row on Randolph Street. Being near the Merchandise Mart provides a pivotal ease of access for walking to work as well as the brown and purple el lines.
Aside from making a mark on the skyline, the point will be home to over 100,000 square feet of park, landscaped planting beds, river walk, and pedestrian areas. Historically, seagulls have been the only Chicago riverfront residents to enjoy this nook of precious land tucked in the shadows of the Merchandise Mart. Residents of West Tower Apartments of Wolf Point will surely find a gem of their new home with a front row seat to passing boats in the summer months, the shimmer of the night skyline year round, and the majestic glow of a frozen river in the colder months.
The development will redefine riverfront living for residents in the City of Chicago. Pre-leasing for first time residents is slated to begin later this year. Get excited, Chicago, the city is healthily expanding!
