A few weeks ago, representatives from White Oak Realty Partners, CA Residential, LLC, Power Construction, FitzGerald Associates Architects, the 27th Ward, and Greektown community groups gathered to celebrate the topping-off of the 33-story, 350-apartment Arkadia Tower, located at the southeast corner of Adams and Halsted Streets in Chicago’s West Loop / Greektown neighborhood. During the event, members of the development, design, and construction teams were invited to place their signatures upon the final piece of steel structure before it was hoisted to the top of the tower.
Visible from Chicago’s bustling I-90/94 corridor, Arkadia’s façade will be a gateway marker welcoming visitors to Chicago’s Greektown neighborhood. Contemporary design elements contribute to a modern but contextual building for the neighborhood, which will include 350 rental apartments in studio, one-, and two-bedroom formats and 20,500 SF of street-level retail space. The building will provide residents with several amenities including a rooftop pool, garden and green roof, dog walk, and community party rooms with fabulous views of the loop. The building is designed to seek LEED Certification and includes a green roof, energy-efficient window-wall system designed to minimize solar heat gain, high-efficiency HVAC and low-environmental-impact materials and finishes.
