The Seneca, a historic hotel at 200 E Chestnut St in Streeterville, is being transformed into 260 apartments.
We stopped by a press event yesterday for a look at the renovation efforts, and to view a model apartment furnished by Room & Board. Short-term leases are still available on lower floors while The Seneca is being remodeled a floor at a time, from the top down.
Updated studio, 1- and 2-bedroom, 2-bath units feature wood finish vinyl flooring, updated kitchens with stainless steel appliances, refinished baths and custom window treatments. Amenities will include on-site dry cleaning, a new fitness center and a large rooftop sundeck. The building also hosts Francesca’s Restaurant and the Saloon Steakhouse. Building services will include on-site management and 24/7 door staff.
The video focuses on a one-bedroom model and the rooftop deck, and avoids areas of the building, including the lobby and fitness center, that are being redone.
