The Sinclair is a 36-story, 390-unit apartment tower at 1201 N LaSalle. Groundbreaking at the property took place on December 9, 2015. Pre-leasing begins early in April of 2017 for August 1, 2017 occupancy.
The Sinclair is the newest rental high-rise in the Gold Coast, and the first rental building built in the Gold Coast in nearly 30 years.
The Sinclair replaces a recently-demolished 29,000 square-foot Jewel-Osco on the site with a 55,000 square-foot Jewel-Osco.
The Sinclair has studio, one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floor plans. The top three floors feature two-, three- and four-bedroom penthouse units.
High-style apartment finishes include floor-to-ceiling windows, plank flooring, quartz countertops, glass tile backsplashes, wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances and in-unit washers and dryers. Some of the units have private recessed balconies and master bedroom walk-in closets.
Floor plans and near real-time rent & availability info can be accessed online.
Views. East- and south-facing units offer the best views, especially from higher floors.
Amenities, services, policies
The Sinclair has, by far, the most extensive amenities in the Gold Coast.
The Sinclair has a sprawling, south-facing pool deck with cabanas, a whirlpool, a fire pit, a grilling area, flat-panel TVs, and a private dog park.
The fitness center has a separate yoga studio
The nicely-equipped party room has a demonstration kitchen, and can host a variety of gatherings in style.
Additional amenities include a wi-fi lounge with coffee service, a media room, a business center with a conference room, and resident lounges. The Sinclair has a bicycle kitchen with bicycle storage, supplies, tools and air pumps.
The building is pet-friendly and has on-site management, maintenance and leasing staff, and 24/7 door staff.
The Sinclair has an attractive, steps-to-everything location. Any attempt to describe the richness and variety of the immediate area, which has strong appeal to all age groups, is bound to fall short.
Shopping. The Sinclair has convenient access to several major grocery stores, in addition to the popular seasonal farmers’ market on Division St.
Residents of The Sinclair will have on-site access to a grocery store. A new, flagship Jewel-Osco is nearing completion on the site.
Treasure Island, which bills itself as “America’s most European supermarket,” is just southwest of The Sinclair.
The new, upscale Plum Market is a few blocks west on Wells St, just north of Division. A new Target recently opened on Division St, seven-tenths of a mile west. A number of convenience stores and delis are near the building.
Dining, nightlife. One of the densest, most interesting restaurant and nightlife clusters in Chicago is a short walk southeast of The Sinclair.
The triangle-shaped Mariano Park is great for people-watching or relaxing before or after dining and drinking.
Parks, recreation. Residents at The Sinclair have good access to a variety of parks and recreational activities.
Oak Street Beach, with its spectacular views of the Lake Shore Drive skyline, is two short blocks east.
Resident kids and their visiting friends will head for Goudy Square Playlot on landmark-laden Astor Street, a few minutes’ walk from The Sinclair.
Transportation. Public transportation is excellent.
The newly renovated CTA Red Line stop at Clark and Division is right outside the building.
A variety of CTA bus routes criss-cross the area along Division, State and LaSalle Streets.
Access to I-90/94 and the rest of the city’s expressway grid can be slow along Division St during peak hours. If you’re southbound or headed for the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290), the Ontario St ramp is a better option.
Rentals are typically available in a number of nearby condo buildings, sometimes at lower rents than in the managed apartment buildings.
