Arkadia, 765 W Adams St, is a 33-story, 350 unit apartment tower under construction in the West Loop. The property includes indoor parking for 350 vehicles and 20,500 square feet of retail space.
Construction began in June of 2013 and occupancy is likely late in 2014 or early in 2015.
The building will have a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Floor plans and apartment finish details are not yet publicly available. Renderings of the project indicate that many of the units will have balconies.
Amenities, services, policies
Only preliminary information is available. The building, which is designed to seek LEED Certification, will provide residents with amenities that include a rooftop pool, garden and green roof dog walk, and community party rooms with views of the Loop.
The University of Illinois at Chicago is a few blocks to the south of Arkadia.
The location rates a Walker’s Paradise Walk Score of 91 and a Rider’s Paradise Transit Score of 98.
Views. The building’s location fronting I-90/94 and its orientation on a north – south axis will afford a majority of the units excellent and unbroken views of the Loop skyline.
Dining. There are dozens of restaurants within a few blocks’ radius of Arkadia, and many more in nearby Loop and Fulton River District locations.
Greek Islands is directly across the street from Arkadia, and the popular Meli Café is a block south. Many residents are likely to avail themselves of the seemingly endless array of take-out options at the nearby Mariano’s.
Parks, recreation. Arkadia is two blocks block east of the new Mary Bartelme Park at Adams and Peoria. Heritage Green, a block to the east, is a one-acre passive green space that offers little in the way of recreational opportunities.
Transportation. Arkadia fronts the western edge of I-90/94 and has excellent access to the city’s expressway grid. Metra’s Ogilvie Transportation Center is a half-dozen blocks to the northeast and Union Station is 4 blocks to the east.
Arkadia is one of a number of new apartment projects under construction and proposed in the West Loop.
