After having just completed a high-rise building in River North, apartment megadeveloper AMLI is preparing to have its AMLI Lofts development in Printer's Row completed by this July. Adding 398 rental units and 5,000 square feet of streetfront retail to the corner of Clark and Polk should be a boon for the Printer's Row neighborhood of the South Loop, but what might be even more enticing to prospective renters is that the development plans to offer some unique amenities aimed at folks in the high tech and web industries like gigabit internet service, electric car charging stations, a dog run and fitness center with a yoga studio. The development also boasts its transportation options, and relative proximity to several nearby educational institutions. Considering the downtown area rental development boom is largely attributed to millennial tech sector workers who see high-speed connections as necessary for life as air conditioning and running water, the amenity may be a wise investment for new developments to offer prospective tenants.
