The new residential block flanking the Eisenhower Expressway is just a few months away from taking a bow. 1035 West Van Buren Street has narrowed down its occupancy date to August, just five months from now. It also has a real name: Landmark West Loop.
The location of the Morris Adjmi Architects-designed building is in the more residential area of the rapidly transforming Near West Side, so it has all the benefits of proximity to downtown, but in a more neighborhoody setting than the one coming together in the nearby Fulton Market area. In addition to providing quick Blue Line, Divvy, and Uber access to The Loop and the West Loop, it’s also walking distance to U.I.C., and the Illinois Medical District.

Related Midwest Begins Pre-Leasing at Landmark West Loop Apartments in Chicago’s West Loop
300-unit luxury rental tower offers walkable urban lifestyle near Fulton Market and Illinois Medical District
CHICAGO (March 15, 2017) – Related Midwest today announced the start of pre-leasing at Landmark West Loop, the developer’s 30-story, 300-unit luxury rental tower at 1035 W. Van Buren St. in Chicago’s West Loop. Related expects to top-off the tower later this month, with first occupancy planned for August 2017.
“We know there is rising demand for luxury apartments in this corner of downtown, which borders the Illinois Medical District and offers proximity to jobs throughout the West Loop and Fulton Market,” said Curt Bailey, president of Related Midwest. “The same energy and creativity that has fueled the neighborhood’s growth permeates every corner of Landmark West Loop, resulting in a new level of luxury rental housing that, until now, hasn’t been available in the West Loop.”
Slated to be the first West Loop rental tower to deliver in 2017, Landmark West Loop will offer a mix of studio, convertible, one- and two-bedroom apartments, along with two- and three-bedroom penthouses. Residences will range in size from 500 to 1,960 square feet, including penthouses, with pricing starting at $1,650 per month for studios, $1,825 for convertibles, $2,150 for one-bedrooms, $2,925 for two-bedrooms with one bath, and $3,295 for two-bedrooms with two baths. The six penthouse units are priced from $4,595 per month.
All Landmark West Loop apartments will feature 9-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing city views, custom plank flooring, solid-core wood interior doors, spacious closets, in-unit laundry and resident-controlled Nest thermostats. In addition, residences will showcase high-end kitchens with custom storm gray-colored cabinetry, quartz countertops, white subway tile backsplashes, open shelving, high-performance Bosch appliances, and mobile stainless steel islands in select plans. Baths will feature quartz countertops, custom-designed vanities and walk-in showers with frameless glass surrounds.
“Landmark West Loop will deliver a five-star residential experience inspired by our two pioneering rental communities, 500 Lake Shore Drive and OneEleven, yet uniquely tailored to this location,” said Bailey. “With companies like McDonald’s and Dyson moving their headquarters to the West Loop, and Google and Motorola already well established in the area, Landmark West Loop will appeal to professionals seeking a casual yet refined urban lifestyle that allows them to transition from day to night without ever leaving the neighborhood. It’s also ideal for those in search of luxury housing near the adjacent Illinois Medical District and University of Illinois at Chicago campus.”
Residents of Landmark West Loop will have access to more than 12,000 square feet of amenity space, including a landscaped sun deck with pool, spa, private cabanas, lounge areas with fire pits, outdoor kitchens with grills and an 850-square-foot dog run. Indoor amenities include a poolhouse with ping-pong, shuffleboard and arcade games; a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio; demonstration kitchen with adjacent entertaining area for private events and cooking classes; community-supported agriculture (CSA) room with seasonal programming; Living Library with lounge seating, a fireplace and communal workspaces; full-service pet spa and grooming station; and secure bike storage room. Residents can also take advantage of 24-hour concierge service, move-in coordination by RelatedStyle Services, on-site dry cleaning and laundering by Pressbox, and secure package delivery by Luxer One.
Landmark West Loop is designed by New York-based Morris Adjmi Architects, whose previous projects include 837 Washington, an award-winning office building across from the High Line in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, and the Wythe Hotel, a refurbished factory on the Brooklyn waterfront. The interiors, designed by New York-based Reunion Goods & Services, were designed to complement Adjmi’s steel, brick and glass exterior, which is reflective of the neighborhood’s industrial past.
“We’ve put creativity into every detail, using honest materials to create a lively and sophisticated atmosphere,” said Carrie Dessertine, partner at Reunion. “The result is an innovative, elevated and handsome design that blends past with present, reflecting the broader evolution of the West Loop as a home for makers and innovators.”
Reunion’s interiors were meticulously crafted with livability in mind, according to Dessertine. The design of individual residences is carried through to the amenity spaces, creating a sense of home throughout the building and fostering a sense of community among residents. Common areas and amenities will feature a curated selection of eclectic furnishings and fixtures from emerging designers, with an emphasis on the flow of light and natural elements both indoors and out.
“We designed Landmark so that every time you turn your head, there’s an unexpected moment,” said Ann Thompson, senior vice president of architecture and design at Related Midwest. “It’s an experience that distinguishes this community from any other in the West Loop and is on point with where the neighborhood is today – and where it’s going – without being too trendy.”
In addition to offering convenient access to the Illinois Medical District, University of Illinois at Chicago campus and jobs throughout the West Loop, Landmark West Loop is steps from public transportation, with the UIC-Halsted Blue Line station less than two blocks away. New residents of the community will have the option to receive a complimentary one-year Divvy membership upon signing a 12-month lease.
