The new 41-story apartment tower coming to 200 N. Michigan Avenue is well underway at this point, exciting those keeping an eye on its progress and just waiting for its delivery early next year. Now being called “MILA” (an abbreviation for Michigan and Lake), 200 N. Michigan Avenue is literally just steps from Chicago’s primary theatre district, the Chicago River, Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile and also the city’s major business and financial district, making it a great walk-to-work location as well.
Designed by bKL Architecture, MILA of course has a pretty sleek look and feel from the outside, not to mention developers are also aiming for a LEED Silver certification for the building once construction wraps up for the project. When finished, 402 luxury apartment units will be housed inside 200 N. Michigan, as well as two levels of premium retail space that’s just right up the street from the city’s most celebrated shopping district.
According to some reports, rentals at MILA will average about 800 square feet and contain a pretty nice mixture of studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Aside from that, not much else has been released regarding interior finishes and amenities, but given we’re talking about a high-end high-rise located right in heart of downtown Chicago, you can expect it to be right on par with other recently built luxury rental buildings like 111 W. Wacker, North Water, and 73 E. Lake.
In the meantime, however, keep an eye on its progress by checking out the timelapse video below, which is apparently current through June 15th (as of today).
