A fresh look at the West Loop’s Presidential Towers

Presidential Towers has had nearly a complete makeover since the time of my last visit.

About two-thirds of the property’s 2,346 apartments have been renovated, and the rest are scheduled for renovation. Changes include the replacement of carpeting with hardwood-like flooring in living areas, updated kitchens and baths, opening kitchens to the living areas in some floor plans, and washer / dryers in some units.

The original floor plans were fairly spacious and included closet space that may make renters in newer buildings envious.

A large landscaped sundeck was created in space that had previously been unused.

Interior concourses and individual building lobbies have been transformed. Different designers were chosen to create a unique look for each of the four tower lobbies.

A 28,000 square foot Walmart Neighborhood Market and a 52,000 square foot Formula Fitness Club have opened at Presidential Towers, and additional changes are underway in the retail space. Walmart delivers to PT residents and maintains extended hours for residents only.

Also a change, the streets outside the complex were a lively scene at the time of my visit.
