With the first batch of tenants arriving late last year, the City Hyde Park apartments by Chicago’s Studio Gang Architects has been officially open for business for a few months now. The project is one of the those rare designs where the finished product manages to live up to — if not exceed — high expectations established early by great renderings. Photos of the completed building reveal not only the slick geometry of the angular patterned facade, but also a sharp-looking model unit with modern furnishings to match.
With virtually every unit offering a corner view and at least one balcony, monthly rents in the 15-story luxury tower start around $1,800 for a one bedroom and can exceed $4,600 for higher floor three-bedroom example. Developers have designated 36 of the building’s 180 apartments as affordable-rate for qualifying individuals. City Hyde Park’s 50,000 square feet of ground level retail is anchored by a new Whole Foods market.
Along with the new University of Chicago dormitory project, Studio Gang’s next Hyde Park project will be the recently-approved Solstice on the Park residential tower slated to rise just north of Jackson Park.
