If you’re like me, you probably just smiled and nodded when we described the slanted windows at Solstice on the Park, a 26-story high-rise planned for Hyde Park. It’s a novel idea, I thought, but my head hurt trying to envision sunlight angles at various times during the year.
Luckily Studio / Gang / Architects, the project’s designer, came to my rescue with this helpful diagram. The idea is to angle the windows to shade living spaces during the summer months and capture sunlight during the winter. The graphic also features what looks like stormwater retention systems and a green roof atop the parking deck.
The marketing team is still hoping to open the sales center by May. Right now they’re conducting private showings, according to Waveland Kendt, of @properties. Prices start in the $500s and top out near $2.5 million.
