K2, a new 496-unit luxury apartment tower in Chicago’s Fulton River District, Chicago-based Fifield Companies and Wood Partners, one of the nation’s leading multifamily developers, will host a first-of-its kind K2 Designer Showcase May 1 – 3 to celebrate the grand opening of K2.
The K2 Designer Showcase, which is open to the public, will feature seven models from Chicago designers Morgante Wilson Architects, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, Design for a Cure and Brook Furniture Rental. Each night from 6:30 to 9 guests will be able to tour all seven apartment models, which will range from a bachelor studio to a two-bedroom urban retreat.
“To celebrate K2 being the first downtown luxury apartment tower to open this year, we wanted to do something truly unique and this Designer Showcase seemed like an ideal opportunity,” said Randy Fifield, vice chair of Fifield Cos. “Just as K2 is on the cutting edge of apartment finishes and amenities, this Designer Showcase of ‘pop-up’ models is the first of its kind.
“And it’s not as if we’re just showcasing one model, but seven models from three renowned design teams, whose work has appeared everywhere from The Wall Street Journal to Chicago Luxe,” continued Fifield. “K2 is the perfect venue for these award-winning designers to express their vision for what luxury urban living can truly be.”
Three of the models will be permanent, while the four remaining models will be taken down immediately after the event. Common in the retail industry where pop-up stores appear for a limited time and are then taken down, the idea of pop-up models is new to the apartment market and has not been done in Chicago before, said Fifield.
