When warm weather arrives, the sprawling roof deck at The Lofts at River East is a great spot to hang out, grill a steak, watch a movie in the grassy outdoor theater or watch the steady stream of pedestrians headed past the building to nearby Navy Pier.
You can see a cold-weather, late-December walk around the roof deck in the above video.
Come spring, residents can stroll along the tree-lined Ogden Slip outside the building to the Starbucks in the on-site Target, and pause for an alfresco drink and a bite at Pinstripes before returning to their loft apartment.
In the interim, the slip-level amenities at The Lofts at River East, are an appealing draw.
The rambling slip-side resident lounge has a two-sided fireplace, a bar, and ample seating for small-group gatherings or hosting a party.
Residents navigate a whimsically-decorated hallway to the reach the “entertaining lounge.”
The lounge is spacious enough to accommodate a variety of activities, from quiet study to gathering around the bar and watching sports on a large-screen TV.
Residents who are in the mood for some activity can head for the game room, which has another bar, shuffleboard, a billiards table, a card table and an arcade game.
If game room activities aren’t strenuous enough, residents head for the gym / fitness center.
The fitness center has a wide variety of cardio and strength-training equipment, and the only heavy bags and speed bag in a Chicago rental.
Another fanciful passageway leads to the media room.
The multi-level media room is an ideal gathering spot to watch a sports event or a movie.
There’s a well-equipped bar adjacent to the media room.
The Lofts at River East has character-rich luxury studio to 3-bedroom apartments. Floor plans and near real-time rent and availability info can be accessed online.
