An Urban Center on the River“A one-bedroom apartment costs more or less $1,700 per month,” Gil says of the tower units. “It’s a much lower price compared to what you would normally pay in this area, as the building is old and there are a lot of people who value more modern buildings that offer other kinds of services. I have [about a 160-square-foot] balcony, on which my wife and I spend a lot of our time, especially between May and November. “In my opinion, this is a fantastic place,” Gil says. “You’re in the city center, next to the river and enjoying the best architecture. I’m very interested in the architect’s desire to inject life into the Chicago River, which until some years ago was considered a cesspool used mainly for industry. This building was for workers to live in the city. Of course, the apartments aren’t huge, but the idea of moving the city to the river is really interesting.… As it has such a strong aesthetic, many are curious as to how people live inside it.”
