While the the 26-story tower rising at State and Huron began its foundation work back in April — pausing briefly in May due to an unexpected gas leak — details surrounding the project such as unit count and programming were still murky with only a single rendering of the tower’s base appearing on developer CA Venture’s website. It is now known that the project headed to 8 E. Huron will contain exactly 102 units and will be exclusively rentals, despite earlier speculation mentioning a possibility of condominiums.
A pair of new twilight renderings of the Valerio Dewalt Train Associates design show ground level retail topped by three levels of parking set to contain 31 stalls (as per permits). The residential portion of the building is wrapped in a floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall system with select units containing private balconies. The building’s residential amenities are primarily concentrated on the 24th floor and include such perks as a fitness center, demonstration kitchen, outdoor grilling stations, and infinity pool.
Pre-leasing in the upcoming tower is slated to begin in spring of 2017 with delivery expected to follow later that fall. Though prices have not been released, it’s safe to assume that the monthly rates at 8 E. Huron development will be steep as rent for Chicago’s luxury apartments soar to another all-time yearly high.
