I visited 73 East Lake, a new apartment tower in the Loop, yesterday and toured the amenities and several furnished models.
The grand lobby is colorful and looks out on Lake St. The building has 24/7 door staff and on-site leasing and management staff directly off the lobby.
Today’s post is a partial look at the ninth-floor amenities level. There’s much more to see, but that will await another day.
The amenities at 73 East Lake are on a vast scale, rivaling any found in much larger buildings. Dip into your vocabulary for words like cavernous and baronial, and you won’t be exaggerating. I’m resorting to panoramic images, despite their distortion, to convey a clearer notion of what I saw. Click any image to display a much-larger version.
A spacious resident lounge has a wall of windows looking onto the outdoor deck. There’s a cyber café at the center of the lounge and a demonstration kitchen and a more intimate seating area at opposite ends.
The indoor pool has three walls of windows.
There’s a sculptural whirlpool and sauna and steam rooms adjacent to the pool as you enter, and a large tiled shower at the opposite end. Note the mezzanine level overlooking the pool.
The pool’s mezzanine level has a resident lounge and a fitness room, one of three on the 9th floor.
There’s a large fitness room with a variety of cardio and strength training equipment, and a separate yoga studio.
The business center has large-screen monitors and two separate conference rooms.
The media room has plush seating, and a projector to fill the screen.
The 9th floor lounge opens to a sprawling deck with gas grills, a fire pit, multiple seating areas and landscaping when the weather warms up.
73 East Lake is pet-friendly and has a private dog run. The building has convertible, 1- and 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartments available for immediate occupancy. Floor plans and contact information are available online.
Note: 73 East Lake is a new YoChicago advertiser.
