A new 56-story apartment high-rise is now open on Michigan Avenue. Essex on the Park just welcomed its first residents two years after the project originally broke ground.
The new tower includes an impressive four-story enclosed atrium, infinity-edge swimming pool and valet parking. In addition, the building offers a fitness center, a dog run and pet grooming station, a demonstration kitchen and a party room.
The property includes space for nearly 480 luxury apartments with floor-to-ceiling glass in everything from a traditional studio floor plan to a penthouse duplex with private terraces. Essex on the Park also holds the honor of a Well Certification, the first apartment building in Chicago to receive the distinction.
Located just across from Grant Park, the new apartments sit next door to the former Essex Inn Hotel. Recently rebranded as Hotel Essex, the property is currently in the midst of a $75 million renovation project.
