While construction workers are still busy putting the finishing touches on the glassy 60-story apartment tower known as Wolf Point East, residents have already started moving into the 698-unit high-rise. Luxury Living Chicago Realty, the development’s exclusive leasing provider, has shared photos of Wolf Point East’s model apartments and sprawling communal spaces.

These plentiful amenities from interior design firm Soucie Horner include an indoor-outdoor pool, a full-floor fitness club, a dog run, a golf simulator, coworking and lounge spaces, and a private patio next to the development’s publicly accessible landscaped riverwalk. At 679 feet tall, the Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed tower also offers some of the best views down the main branch of the Chicago River.

All of these features and such enviable views don’t exactly come cheap. Studios at Wolf Point East start at $2,075 per month, junior one-bedrooms at $2,495, one-bedrooms at $2,595, and two-bedrooms at $3,995 per month. The least expensive three-bedroom unit is offered for $9,250, according to the building’s website.

The eastern building is the second of three skyscrapers planned for the high-profile Wolf Point site—which was long home to a surface parking lot. The newly opened high-rise joins the 485-foot Wolf Point West rental complex, which opened in 2016. The third and final piece of the puzzle, an 813-foot Salesforce-anchored Wolf Point South office tower, is expected to break ground this year and open in 2023.

The land surrounding the confluence of the Chicago River’s three branches has changed dramatically in the last several years. In addition to the multi-building Wolf Point development, the area has welcomed a trio of blue-glass office towers: River Point, 150 N. Riverside, and the soon-to-be-completed Bank of America Tower.

Here’s a first look at what renters can expect at Wolf Point East.
