The division between indoor and outdoor spaces continues to blur, with operable glass walls and wide French doors bringing the outdoors into indoor spaces. No longer is the back yard only for single-family developments.
Multifamily construction is evolving to accommodate this desire to create a connection between the indoors and outdoors. Condos extend to the balcony, common rooms extend to the roof deck, exercise rooms extend to the pool and living room extend to the courtyard.
No matter which version of housing is being constructed, the consumer demands this element. This is where the homebuyer can be social, foster friendships among neighbors, and feel like they are part of the community. Amenity spaces have never been more important or more in demand.
Hubbard Place is a 44-story, 450-unit apartment community in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, an established tech hub in the downtown area.
The building has an entire floor dedicated to communal and entertainment amenities, including a spa, billiards room, fitness center, and media, club, and conference rooms. Additional amenities include a swimming pool with a sun deck, landscaped garden, fire pit, and open-air kitchen on an outdoor deck on the 9th floor.
Seat walls and room divisions were created on the roof deck with Unilock® wall systems. The paver pattern directs pedestrian flow and creates distinct spaces using different colors and textures of Unilock Umbriano® and Series™ products.
The building aimed to establish connections between Hubbard Place residents and local merchants, with thoughtful design that took an inclusive view of the surrounding community.
Taking the community approach even further, the 44-story tower features a lushly landscaped park open to residents and community members.
This LEED Silver-certified project offers luxury living and sophistication in rental residences.
