With the issuing of a permit that will allow Florida-based Dolce Living Communities Residential to convert a vintage office tower into stylish new apartments and additional ground level retail space, the Loop’s on-going transformation into one of the hottest places to call home in downtown Chicago seems to be pushing forward as we navigate the first month of 2017.
The building, which is located at 29 S. LaSalle, was originally designed by Jenney & Mundie and first completed all the way back in 1902. But now, roughly 114 years later, a totally revamped interior is on the way for 29 S. LaSalle, which according to reports is being designed by renowned Chicago-based architectural firm FitzGerald Associates Architects.
Permit documents have the total number of units being reduced from 216 down to 207, and per Crain’s Chicago Business, the renovated building will also feature a range of luxury lifestyle amenities, which will include a rooftop swimming pool and sundeck, extra lounge space, a screening room and two media rooms, and even an on-site dog run.
29 S. LaSalle was originally purchased by Dolce Living Communities Residential all the way back in January of 2015. No further information is available about the cost of the redevelopment or when construction is expected to wrap up.
