Jupiter Realty Company Announces 'Topping Off' of 215 West Apartment Tower
CHICAGO, Oct. 19


Jupiter Realty Company today announced the "topping off" of their 50-story apartment tower in Chicago's Loop. Don Smith, a Jupiter principal, noted "the pouring of the 50th and final floor of the 389-unit building marks a significant milestone in the construction process for what is on track to become the newest and one of the few LEED certified high-rise rental residences in Chicago and the first apartment building to be built in the central Loop in 15 years."

I like the black panels on the garage levels. Not quite understanding that last picture though. Looks like the entrance to a bomb shelter.

The building has a "door-cierge"

215 received its certificate of occupancy through the 31st floor last week an we stopped in for a first look.

Shot a video interview with the door attendant who bills herself as Chicago's first door-cierge.

Looks open for business now, sidewalk cleared away. I can't say I love the design though. Looks odd with Washington Block right next door.

What I don't like about this project is how much space is occupied by the spiraling entrance to the parking garage. Is that really necessary? I guess they figured "oh, it's Well Street, so who cares."

They were forced to do the Wells St entrance because they wouldn't grant them permission to have the entrance and exit on Washington.
