From Chicago’s leading hotel developer, who created such iconic local projects as The Langham, LondonHouse, Godfrey Hotel and Hotel Julian comes another vision of grandeur—but this time it’s an amenity-rich residential high-rise. The 479-apartment showpiece is designed with all the luxuriousness and attention to detail you’d expect from Oxford Capital Group.
Adjacent to Essex on the Park is the newly revitalized Hotel Essex, a landmarked mid-century modern icon on Michigan Avenue. The sleek, glass and steel structure shined bright when it shot up in 1961. And it will sparkle again come spring of 2019 when Oxford Hotel and Resorts reopens it as its latest luxury lifestyle hotel. While the historic “Essex Inn” sign will remain atop, the brand new Hotel Essex Chicago will be an alluring addition to the neighborhood.
With a bi-level sky bar and a phenomenal restaurant inside, you don’t have to “go out” to have fun. But if you’re up for adventure, there are plenty of places for you and your new-found neighbor friends to get better acquainted. Walk to LH at LondonHouse for cocktails. Brunch at the Art Institute’s Terzo Piano. Or coordinate a multi-family picnic in the park where the kids can run around while you swap parenting tips.
If you like being catered to, you’ve come to the right place. Lavish amenities like a rain shower head, spa and infinity pool wash away the tension. Comfortable seating in the serene, four-story Winter Garden helps you relax and gather your thoughts. And the convenience of a concierge, coffee bar, dry cleaning and referral service give Essex on the Park a hotel-like vibe. Extravagant? Maybe. Well-deserved? Definitely.
As extravagant as the common spaces are, so too is each apartment. Discover thoughtfully designed flooring throughout. Stainless steel kitchen appliances from Bosch® or Whirlpool®. Countertops made of carefully selected quartz. Fixtures from Kohler®. Faucets finished in polished chrome. And a calming shower experience behind a luxe glass door.
