Alright, you won’t be able to see the field from the rooftop pool at The Residences at Clark and Addison, but isn’t a chance to live this close to Wrigley Field good enough?
The Lakeview neighborhood is pricey, the median rent for a one-bedroom is $1,658 and climbing, but there is a lot to choose from with inventory up 44.4 percent from a year ago, according to apartment finder service HotPads, owned by Zillow Group.
The Residences, a joint project from M&R Development and Bucksbaum Retail Properties, is definitely on the higher end of Wrigleyville apartments and it’s expected that luxury will be made clear in price when leasing by RMK Management Corporation begins in June. The first tenants will be able to move in beginning in August, just in time to see the Cubs off into post season.
The 148 apartments designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz range from studio to two-bedroom floor plans. The sleek, concrete and hardwood units feature a customizable wall slat system. Near the entryway, it can be arranged to hold planters, hang coats, or even convenient bike storage.
The amenity space features an indoor clubhouse, a large-screen TV, a kitchenette and lots of seating clusters. The gym and yoga studio open out onto an outdoor deck with a pool, hot tub, a fire pit and grill stations. There’s a sauna, steam room and a dog run too.
On there’s retail which so far features a Shake Shack, a Harley-Davidson store, a 10-screen CMX Cinemas luxury movie theater, a Baseballism apparel store, and a Lucky Strike Social with bowling, a game room and live music.
The building will also hold 64 precious parking spaces for residents and then another public parking garage with 341 spaces.
