Discover three stunning new properties on the Windy City’s burgeoning real estate scene.
Bringing a blend of privacy and luxury to the West Loop, 1400 Monroe’s residences emphasize intimacy with a dark palette on both the exterior and lobby of the property. Efficiency is key here, with an industrial aesthetic modernized to match the building’s exterior. The lobby boasts simple, intimate details to maximize the space and design accents, including a moss wall. This property, which sits next to Skinner Park, has layouts for sale from two-bedroom, two-bath to three-bedroom, three-bath, as well as a four bedroom, five bath penthouse. $799,000-$2,390,000, 33 N. Morgan St.
Boasting two 17-story towers, Porte offers a variety of floor plans, including two-story, two-bedroom townhomes and three- bedroom apartments. In both white and gray finishes, the complex presents dual amenity suites such as fitness centers and an acre of outdoor greenery for residents. The West Loop property nods to its neighborhood with Chicago’s largest new mural on its facade, created in collaboration with the B_Line Chicago by Shawn Michael Warren, Jane Barthès, Anna Murphy and Kalan Strauss and featuring an homage to Oprah Winfrey. From $1,699-$7,200 per month, 855 W. Madison St.
Beckoning to River West, Westerly’s brick exterior honors Chicago history with murals by local artist Sentrock that bring a modern dose to the midrise’s aesthetic. Interior Design Principal K. Tyler with Morgante Wilson Architects dubs the inspiration behind the development’s design an “urban oasis.” The units (from studios to three-bedroom apartments), with the model’s decor (at right) by FitzGerald, have floor-to-ceiling windows for ample natural lighting, and amenity options include an adjacent public park, a sun terrace with grilling stations and a penthouse-level event room. $1,366-$4,710 per month, 740 N. Aberdeen St.
