A recently built residential tower in Fulton Market nods to Chicago's architectural past with matte black finish and arches, similar to our famous skyscrapers.

Stats: Located just south of Lake Street on Peoria, the 43-story building offers 300 units.

  • 20% of units were set aside for affordable housing, which are all sold out.
  • The building has a pool, gym, event spaces and a communal terrace with hammocks.

The big picture: Fulton Market has been the hot spot for new development, especially since the city relaxed zoning rules north of Lake Street.

What they're saying: "One of the important things about this project was to honor the history of Chicago and its architecture," art adviser and building consultant Andrea Hazen tells Axios.

  • Its community spaces set the new luxury building apart from the rest, according to the development's design firm, MAWD.
  • "We call it hybrid hospitality," designer Elliott March tells Axios. "It can be a coworking space during the day and a lounge at night."

  • You can also rent a smaller 3-bedroom flat (1,658 square feet) for about $7,000 a month.

Of note: The one-bedrooms are all rented.
