A first look at The Parker, the West Loop’s newest apartment tower

Chicago Architecture dubbed The Parker, 730 W Couch Pl, a “wonderfully-curved residential tower,” and that it is. Booth Hansen, the award-winning architects for The Parker, described it as having a “dynamic form,” and that it does.

One of the many things that’s wonderful about The Parker is the way its curved shape affords most of the apartments access to spectacular views.

The view to the northeast is as dramatic as the view to the east.

Residents who opt for west-facing apartments will be able to enjoy the skyline views from a 29th floor resident lounge, pictured above during a hardhat tour of the building.

West-facing apartments look out on Google’s new Chicago offices and the Pink / Green Line CTA stop at Morgan St, a few minutes’ walk from The Parker.

The West Loop location, a short block from Randolph Street’s “restaurant row,” is as wonderful as the views, and as dynamic as The Parker’s facade.

The Parker is slated to welcome its first residents June 22 to a mix of studio to 3-bedroom apartments. Pre-leasing rents range from $1,750 to $1,900 for studios, $1,825 to $2,995 for 1-bedrooms, $2,825 for 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartments, $3,095 to $3,895 for 2-bedroom, 2-baths, and $4,295 to $5,250 for 3-bedroom, 2-baths.

Apartments will have high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit washer / dryers, plank flooring, and a choice of finish packages.

The Parker’s extensive amenities will include a sun terrace with an outdoor pool, a fitness center, a Fitness-on-Demand private room, a business center, a lounge with a coffee bar, a media room, and an indoor / outdoor rooftop lounge.

The pet-friendly building will have a dog walk, indoor bike parking, resident storage, covered parking with electric vehicle chargers, and online-concierge service.

The pre-leasing office for The Parker is open Monday through Friday from 9 to 6 at WeWork Fulton Market, 220 N Green St. Email info@theparkerchicago.com for additional information.
