Located at 29 South LaSalle in the heart of Chicago’s Loop, Millennium represents the complete conversion of the existing 13-story office building to a highly amenitized development that blends contemporary finishes and conveniences with captivating historic elements. 216 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments are planned. Units will include the latest in “smart” mechanical systems and technological conveniences, including integrated USB power sources throughout, a pre-wired media hub, and bluetooth audio. The ground floor will include approximate 7,000 SF retail space.
A new 14th floor amenity level will be added to the building and will include a pool, a lounge, a sport court with fitness room, a dog run, and landscaped roof deck. In the basement, residents will have access to a large screening room, two console game media rooms, a computer LAN lounge, a musical practice space with recording booth, a dog wash room, laundry/dry cleaning valet, and secure private storage. Bicycle storage in the basement will connect to a first-floor bike workshop via a stair with bike-friendly ramp. The workshop will offer part & supply vending, work stands, and convenient digital media resources for entertainment and technical reference.
The lobby will be renovated with new contemporary finishes, furniture, and lighting–providing a modern aesthetic within the historic marble-clad space. A coffee / media lounge will be created on the first floor, and the development team is seeking approvals to include access to outdoor cafe-style seating in the adjacent Arcade Place. The building will feature approximately 7,000 square feet of retail space.
The building–built as the National Life Building–was designed by Jenney & Mundie and completed in 1902. The building was renovated in 1940 and was most recently known as Barrister Hall.
