Chicago’s new rental towers continue to lease up at a rapid rate.
The first residents moved into SoNo East, a new 22-story, 324-unit rental tower at 840 N Blackhawk St, just last month, but the building is already 60% leased and 40% occupied, according to a leasing representative.
Studio, convertible, 1- and 2-bedroom units are still available, most for immediate occupancy. The final five floors are slated for completion by early September. The units feature 9-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit washers and dryers, laminated hardwood floors and granite countertops. Most have private outdoor space.
SoNo East’s amenities package includes Club SoNo, a 4th floor area with a billiards room, a café / lounge, a party room with kitchen and serving area, a Wii / poker room, fitness rooms, and an outdoor sundeck with a firepit, barbeque grills, hot tub and a 24 x 70 foot stainless steel swimming pool. The building also has a business center with Wi-Fi, a bicycle storage area, resident storage lockers and a ground-level enclosed dog run.
Resident services include a reception desk and 24-hour door staff.
