As the 47-story condo tower known as Cirrus readies to break ground, its developers have released a fresh batch of renderings showing interiors of the Lakeshore East project’s planned 363 units.

Ranging from 650 to 3,000 square feet, the for-sale residences are priced from mid-$400,000 to $4 million. They are offered in one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom layouts, plus two townhome residences at ground level and 15 penthouse units located on floors 42 through 47.

Features include floor-to-ceiling windows, quartzite countertops, high-end appliances, cabinetry, and fixtures. Pre-sales launched in April, and the initial response has been “positive,” according to a spokesperson from LendLease which is co-developing the project with Magellan.

Located steps from Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, Maggie Daley Park, and the Chicago Riverwalk, the development will connect upper Harbor Drive to the Chicago Lakefront Trail with a sloping, landscaped park planned just to the north.

The condo project is expected to break ground at 211 N. Harbor Drive in September, according to LendLease. It will rise simultaneously alongside a new 37-story, 503-unit apartment building slated for the parcel to the immediate west. Known as Cascade, this rental project was awarded its first construction permit on Friday.

Cascade and Cirrus will eventually be joined by a third, unnamed residential skyscraper which will rise 950 feet above Lake Shore Drive. The design of all three buildings comes from Lakeshore East-based bKL Architecture.

Cirrus will offer two “curated finish palettes” with several alternate options.

Kitchens will be outfitted with Snaidero cabinetry, quartzite countertops, and tile backsplashes.
Bathrooms will feature walk-in shower niches with frameless glass doors.
