The building will include 10,000 square feet of ground-level retail space and 72 parking spots.
The unit mix includes studios, convertibles, 1-, 2- and 3-bedrooms. Floor plans and details of unit finishes have not yet become publicly available.
Amenities, services, policies
According to the developer, the building will have “boutique hotel inspired amenities including a fitness center and large shared terraces.”
Wells Street north of Division St (1200 N) is one of the most interesting and attractive pedestrian-scale venues in Chicago.
Nearly all of the funky vibe that made the strip a tourist mecca in the 60s and 70s has vanished, but a few traces remain.
Walk Score gives the location a “Walker’s Paradise” score of 97 and an “Excellent Transit” score of 89.
Shopping. Grocery shopping doesn’t get much more convenient than having Plum Market, a full-service high-end grocer across the street. Jewel and Dominick’s are a few blocks in either direction on Division St, and the original Treasure Island is a few blocks north on Wells St. A new Target is nearing completion several blocks west on Division St. Walgreen’s pharmacies are nearby on Division St and Wells St.
Wells Street is home to an eclectic array of boutiques and other retail establishments. Big-box retailing is available at the nearby Clybourn Corridor, and Scott Residences is within walking distance of Oak Street boutiques and Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile shops.
Dining, nightlife. Wells Street is a destination restaurant row, with a wide and growing variety of eating and drinking establishments and outdoor dining along its broad sidewalks. A new Hash Browns Café is opening soon at Division and Wells.
Just east along Division is another strip of bars and restaurants. Head a block south on State St toward Rush St and the dining and nightlife scene intensifies even further.
Transportation. Public transportation is excellent. The Clark & Division Red Line stop is two short blocks from the building for quick connections to the Loop.
North / south and east / west CTA bus routesare a block from 1225.
Cross-town access to I-90/94 on Division St can be time-consuming, but southbound travelers may save time by heading for the Ontario St on-ramp.
The building’s most direct competitor will be 1225 Old Town, directly the across the street. The only other new rental high-rise in Old Town is SoNo East, but it’s in a very different location. Eugenie Terrace, a few blocks north in Lincoln Park, is also a competitor.
You might also consider condos for rent in nearby buildings – they’re occasionally available at sharply lower rents than you’ll find in the rental buildings, in part because they don’t offer comparable amenities packages.
