A pre-opening look inside Old Town’s newest apartments


The new 16-story apartment tower at 1225 N Wells St in Old Town, is ahead of its construction schedule and prepping to begin welcoming new residents in July. The leasing office at 1212 N Wells St has been busy, and apartments are renting more rapidly than initially expected.

Several lower floors were already nearing move-in condition when I visited, and the 250-unit building was buzzing with activity. David Bach, an associate with Hines Interests showed me around for this video tour.

The amenities level will host an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, a fire pit, stainless steel grills, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a private movie theater, a demonstration kitchen, and a cyber-café and social lounge.

In addition to having a high-end grocer — Plum Market — in the building, residents will have a selection of bars and restaurants directly across the street — and scores more within easy walking distance. Public transportation via the CTA Red and Brown Lines is a few minutes’ walk, and parks and beaches are nearby.
