The Habitat Company’s Hubbard Place Set for Early Autumn Opening
- Aug 23, 2013
Chicago—The doors to Hubbard Place, the newest Chicago luxury apartment community from The Habitat Company, are set to swing open on October 1.
The community, in the trendy and bustling River North neighborhood just north of the Loop, is distinguished by a number of features. The most notable is a 29,000-square-foot amenity level, which The Habitat Company states is the largest and best appointed such amenity space in the entire Windy City.
“River North is an incredibly dynamic environment in Chicago,” Mark Segal, president and CEO of The Habitat Company, based in Chicago, tells MHN. “Our property is across from the East Bank Club, and we’re right on Hubbard Street, which has become a hub for entertainment in Chicago. And, of course, we’re right across the river from the Loop. Residents will be very conveniently located to get to their jobs in the Loop, or anywhere else they want to go.”
The 43-story, 450-unit apartment tower offers distinctive luxury and sophistication in a dozen different high-end rental residence layouts.
Apartments feature designer kitchens, expansive walk-through closets, full-sized washers and dryers, dramatic floor-to-ceiling bay windows with premium solar shades, and private balconies. All units offer sumptuous grey Eligna oak flooring, Snaidero designer Italian cabinetry and quiet closing mechanisms, quartz countertops with glass and stone backsplash and elegant stainless steel sinks and appliances. The building is designed to LEED standards.
The exterior entryway to Hubbard Place reflects a distinct and well-defined philosophy of The Habitat Company. “We look at how our developments impact the greater neighborhood, so we set our building back from the street, with 80 feet of fountains in front of the building, and we’ve also commissioned a 25-foot sculpture that will be part of that park-like setting as well,” Segal says. “It’s just a dramatic way for residents to come home each day. And, of course, in terms of locating the building, given our location we’re able to offer our residents 360-degrees of wonderful Chicago views, including views up and down the river, lake views and views of Chicago’s core.”
The amenity level offers residents an 11,000-square-foot rooftop sundeck with sensational city views, fire pit conversation lounges, private outdoor lounging spaces with multiple grills and extra-large outdoor swimming pool with luxurious chaise lounges. Interior amenities include a yoga lounge, whirlpool spa, sauna, steam room, Kohler Chromalight therapy showers, and entertainment lounge that includes outdoor gourmet kitchen.
“It’s going to be a spectacular addition to River North, and offer a wonderful home to our residents,” Segal says. “It is the capstone of the vision our founder, Daniel Levin, had for this area when he founded the East Bank Club back in the 1970s.”
