Project Description

This 380,000 SF Mixed-use structure shares a prominent urban site with Kenzo Tange’s 1990 headquarters for the American Medical Association. Siting of the building preserves the notable ground level plazas, water features and colonnades. The tower configuration complements the massing of its neighbor and provides stunning views of Chicago’s Loop, Magnificent Mile and Lake Michigan.

The Hotel Palomar, a four-star brand of Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, is on the fourteen lower levels, and includes the signature Sable restaurant, ballroom and full conference facilities, indoor swimming pool, fitness center and rooftop deck.

Each residential unit on the top eighteen levels has a private balcony and two all-glass corners. Residential floor plates are small, with seven units on each level.
