This concrete and glass residential tower brings new life to an underutilized location in Chicago’s burgeoning River North area. NEXT Apartments earned a Three Green Globes Certification from the Green Building Initiative in recognition of its achievements in sustainable construction and design.
NEXT APARTMENTS Height limits in the district allowed the optimization of residential space and the streamlining of the building envelope without compromising style. The tower’s sleek, curved facade and setback penthouse provide a graceful continuation of the developing architectural landscape within this established neighborhood. An abundance of outdoor spaces, private balconies, green terraces and building amenities are seamlessly integrated into the design. The base of the building reflects the scale of surrounding buildings while serving to conceal off-street parking and frame a retail colonnade along the street front. Anchoring the tower to its base is an elevated amenity deck and connecting spaces, which include a swimming pool, hot tub, recreation areas and outdoor grilling.
