Lendlease Development, Magellan pre-selling units at Cirrus
By Jesse Wright, Staff Writer|May 1, 2019
Lendlease Development, a leading international property and infrastructure group, along with Magellan Development Group, announced in April the start of pre-sales for Cirrus, a 47-story, 363-unit luxury condominium tower at 211 N. Harbor Drive, along Chicago’s lakefront in the Lakeshore East community. Scheduled to begin construction this summer, with first deliveries in fall 2021, Cirrus is part of a three-tower addition that represents one of the final phases of the Lakeshore East master plan.
“With Cirrus, we’ve worked with our partners to carefully design a tower that complements this idyllic site at the prominent juncture of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River,” said Tom Weeks, executive general manager of development at Lendlease in a press release. “In addition to being thoughtfully placed to maximize views of the lake, river, skyline and adjacent Cascade Park – a public green space for the entire neighborhood – Cirrus fills a void in the new-construction condo market with a range of floor plans and price points that presents a unique opportunity for the downtown buyer, especially in such a prominent location.”
Buyers can choose from one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom condos, as well as two townhome residences at ground level and 15 penthouse residences – including one duplex – located on floors 42-47. Units will range in size from 650 to over 3,000 square feet and be priced from the mid-$400,000s to over $4 million.
All residences will showcase one of two curated finish palettes with several alternate options available. Nine-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows will highlight the panoramic views.
Cirrus residents will enjoy 48,000 square feet of exclusive amenities. In the lobby, residents will have access to a 24-hour concierge and lounge with an open, circular fireplace. An adjacent outdoor pool overlooking Lake Michigan will include a deck with seating and cabanas. Other amenities include an indoor pool lounge, private workspaces, conference rooms, a social lounge with fireplace, conservatory overlooking the adjacent park, dry-cleaning lockers and a package room. Additional owner amenities will be located on the 41st floor, including a wine cellar with tasting room, separate show and prep kitchens with a dining area and chef’s corner lounge, and an east-facing outdoor terrace with barbecue and fire pit.
Cirrus will share additional amenities with Cascade, an adjacent 37-story, 503-unit apartment tower that will break ground simultaneously and be developed by the same partners. These common areas, which will be located in a shared podium, include a 25-yard indoor lap pool, heat therapy pool and splash pad; children’s playroom; fitness center with adjacent yoga/spin studio, HIIT training area and locker rooms; massage and steam rooms; game room with golf simulator and billiards; screening room; shop space; music room; multi-purpose community room; dog-washing station; and indoor dog run.
