The project features 135 fully furnished units with full kitchens, including dishwashers, private bathrooms and views of downtown Chicago. Amenities include wireless Internet access, plasma televisions and DVRs in each unit, an activity center with pool tables and gaming systems, a computer lab, study rooms, a 24-hour fitness center, a high-pressure tanning dome, and a laundry center and trash chute on each floor.
