330 W. Chestnut is a proposed 129-unit, transit-oriented, new construction development in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, offering a comfortably scaled apartment building in a blossoming neighborhood that will be seeing great growth from the anticipated Moody Bible property redevelopment.
Inspired by the legacy of the minimally adorned frame buildings of the Chicago School of Architecture, the simple elegance of the Miesian era of Chicago Architecture, as well as the contextual examples of the utilitarian commercial and warehouse structures abundant in the River North neighborhood, 330 West Chestnut aspires to be a contemporary and modern interpretation of the simple frame structures of the Chicago School. The refined proportion and elegant detailing of the massing and the exterior wall offer a counterpoint to the character of the all-glass high rises or the load bearing masonry expression of many buildings in the vicinity.
The building will offer a mix of convertible through two-bedroom units and a full suite of hospitality-style amenities, including a co-working space, fitness studio, resident lounge and a landscaped sky terrace. To explore an opportunity to celebrate the character of this neighborhood, ownership and the design team also intend to work with the community to design a large mural for the opaque section of the North façade.
