The recently unveiled design of The Row Fulton Market, a new Chicago high-rise residential building, draws inspiration from industrial infrastructure and L tracks in the historic Fulton Market District neighborhood. The 43-story, 300-unit rental property is in the city’s former meatpacking district, and its glass-and-steel façade reflects the arched support beams of the L tracks.

The slender tower is set back from a five-story podium that conceals parking and includes residences that front Peoria Street. Together with first-level retail space, the podium apartments help activate the streetscape in a manner consistent with adjacent buildings.

The Row will offer convertible, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, including penthouses, all with sweeping views of the surrounding cityscape, and multiple amenities. The property will include a fitness club; yoga studio; children’s play suite; reservable entertainment suite with adjacent terrace that includes an outdoor kitchen with seating; and multiple lounge and co-working spaces with modular seating and private conference areas. 

The Row Fulton Market is a 43-story, 300-unit residential high-rise under construction at 164 N. Peoria St., in the heart of Chicago’s historic Fulton Market District. Scheduled to open in June 2023, The Row – just steps from the city’s famed Restaurant Row – will offer convertible, one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom rentals, along with a full suite of resident amenities.

Atop the podium, a 13,800-sf landscaped recreational deck on the west side of the building, allowing for maximum sunlight, will feature a lap pool with lounge seating, three outdoor grilling kitchens tucked under pergolas and separated by high planters, with dedicated dining and seating areas, a serene green space with lounging hammocks, and two fire pits with intimate seating that overlooks the city.

A welcoming lobby will include a 24-hour concierge and door attendant, and residents will have access to a variety of services, such as move-in coordination, housekeeping, package storage, on-site dry cleaning, and walking, grooming and daycare services for pets.

Building interiors incorporate mid-century architectural references synonymous with Chicago through the use of warm tones and rich textures in both residences and common areas. The units range in size from 617 sf to 1,929 sf and feature 9-foot-6-inch ceilings; expansive windows, some framed by the steel arches that comprise the building’s façade; 8-inch wide-plank flooring; spacious storage; full-size in-unit washers and dryers; roller shades; and smart thermostats. High-end kitchens will feature Italian laminate cabinetry with back-painted glass uppers; quartz countertops with matching full-height backsplashes. Select residences will have private terraces.
