A modern classic in the heart of the West Loop.
Sulo Development approached LJC with the challenge to design a luxury condominium tower to follow the success of their previous residential project, Hayden. LJC drew on the history and character of the West Loop, and designed a dynamic, forward-looking building with an attention to detail and elegance. The result is Embry West Loop – with gracious unit layouts, unparalleled city views, and a meticulously detailed exterior. Embry sets a new standard of living in the neighborhood and all of Chicago.
Embry West Loop is a sixteen-story, 256,000 SF condominium tower with 58 units, including Duplexes, 2, 3, and 4-bedroom units, and two penthouse units.
Embry was designed from the inside out, with attention given to column-free unit layouts, large private terraces, and views. The lower-level units engage the tree-lined street and vibrant West Loop neighborhood, while upper-level units have oversized terraces with east views to the city skyline. The building features private elevator access, and amenities including an outdoor terrace, chef’s kitchen, gym, and dog walk and spa.
Extensive landscaping along the street and on the building podium enhances the quiet, residential street. The plantings respond to the seasons, providing ever-changing character to the building façade along May Street. It’s not another glass box tower; instead, the pleated bronze exterior catches light and shadow of the changing sun, and features oversized picture windows which frame views of the neighborhood and skyline.
In addition to the architecture, LJC designed the landscape and collaborated with KARA MANN on the interiors and finishes. The team worked extensively with Ventana to design and detail the exterior integrated window wall.
With sales already underway, construction will start Fall 2021.
