The Hudson is a 25-story, 240-unit apartment tower with ground-floor retail under construction at 750 N Hudson Ave in River North.
Building permits for the property were issued in July 2015. The photo above shows construction progress as of October 9, 2015. First occupancies for the building are slated for 2017.
Details of the unit mix and apartment finishes are not yet available. Expect The Hudson to be competitive in its offerings with newer buildings in the area.
Building renderings show recessed balconies.
Views. The Hudson is surrounded by mainly low-rise buildings to the east and north, which will afford the building with sweeping views of the skyline from higher floors.
Amenities, services, policies
The amenities package at The Hudson is not yet publicly available. Expect the building to have a suite of amenities comparable to newer buildings in the area.
The Hudson is situated on Chicago Avenue between Hudson Ave and Kingsbury St, blocks away from dense nightlife and tourist attractions.
Shopping. Grocery shopping and retail outlets are several blocks from The Hudson.
The River North Gallery District has dwindled in the economic downturn, but remains a vibrant scene.
Dining, nightlife. River North dining, bar and nightlife options are within a short walk or cab ride of The Hudson, and coffee shops and sidewalk cafés are a short walk away.
If you crave Italian, Club Lago is three blocks from the building.
There’s a small park three blocks south west of The Hudson. The popular 3-acre Montgomery Ward Park on the Chicago River is a quick walk from the building.
Ward Park is primarily a passive recreation space sloping down to the river, but it does have an excellent children’s playground and it hosts a number of Night out in the Parks events.
There’s a dog-friendly area just west adjacent to Ward Park.
Transportation. Public transportation is decent.
The Chicago Ave stop on the Brown and Purple lines is about a 10-minute walk from the building, and there’s a Starbucks adjacent to it.
CTA bus routes on Chicago Ave provide frequent (although not always rapid) access to Streeterville and North Michigan Ave, and busses along Wells St and LaSalle Blvd connect to Loop and Near North destinations. Taxis regularly cruise the area.
Zipcar car sharing locations are nearby.
Access to the city’s expressway grid is excellent, via the nearby Ohio / Ontario off / on ramps to I-90/94.
