One year after releasing a plan for a new luxury West Loop condo building, developers have come out with a new proposal, with few visible changes from the original plan. The project is proposed to go in at 900 W. Washington Boulevard, designed by the architectural firm of Northworks.
While the old plan called for 24 units, the new proposal includes 22 units. The new design also includes one less parking space than originally proposed. Perhaps the biggest difference is with the building’s exterior, once specified as a stained or dark painted concrete but now changed to a composite stone that’s more fade-resistant. The Dekton material should help the building stand up better to the elements.
A parking garage on the main level of the building may include public artwork while all elevators will open to “family-style” units. Residents may install auto lifts to create more parking for themselves. Two large duplex penthouses will occupy the top two levels of the building, each with 5,500 square feet of living space. Construction could start in late 2016 and be completed by late 2017.
