The façade of the building will be glass, punctuated by green accents.
Construction on the building began in February 2016 and occupancy is slated for mid-2017.
The photo above shows the construction status as of February 12, 2016.
Details of the unit mix and finished have not been released yet.
Expect the building to have a high level of finishes to compete with other newer buildings in the area.
Views. Some of the higher-floor north-facing units will have dramatic views, but most of the units’ view corridors are constricted by neighboring buildings.
Amenities, services, policies
The amenities package for Linea has not been released yet, but renderings show that the building will have a suite of amenities competitive with newer buildings in the area. The building will include over 22,000 sq ft of amenities.
The majority of the amenities will be situated on the top two floors of the building. The building will have a resident café with bar seating and TVs.
Adjacent to the café is a resident lounge with a billiards table and an enclosed outdoor seating area with stairs to a rooftop terrace.
There will be a deck on the same level as the cafe with lounge seating adjacent to an indoor pool with sliding glass walls.
The building will include a fitness center and a media room for those looking to get in a good workout or just lounge around watching a movie.
Above the parking garage will be an additional outdoor terrace with eco garden.
Linea will have on-site leasing, management and parking. The building will be pet-friendly and include a dog spa.
Linea has a convenient location near the northwest edge of the Loop.
Shopping. Grocery shopping is one of the location’s weak points. The nearest full-service grocery, City Target, is a half-dozen blocks away and the grocery department is on the second floor. Mariano’s is nearly a mile to the east, about the same distance as the nearest Jewel. The farmers market at Daley Plaza is a seasonal favorite.
Dining, nightlife. There are abundant options in the immediate area, but many cater heavily to office workers and tourists. For those interested in a beer and a burger, Monk’s Pub is located right next to Linea.
Residents have quick access to the thriving River North restaurant, bar and nightlife scene a few short blocks to the north.
Cultural attractions. Linea is near many of Chicago’s top cultural attractions. The Loop’s theatre district is a short walk away. The Art Institute, Lyric Opera and Chicago Symphony are a few minutes away.
Transportation. Public transportation is outstanding. The CTA El stop at Wells and Washington is two short blocks south and serves 4 different routes, including Orange Line access to Midway Airport. The Pedway, which is accessible across the street, enables all-weather access to the Red Line and the Blue Line to O’Hare Airport. CTA bus routes in the immediate area provide citywide connections.
Metra’s Ogilvie Transportation Center, about a 10-minute walk away, provides connections to west, northwest and northern suburbs.

You might also consider condos for rent – they’re occasionally available at lower rents than you’ll find in the rental buildings.
