Want a park at your front door? Buy an Aqua townhome in Lakeshore East!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on July 17, 2009

At park level, these nine Aqua townhomes are located under the outdoor deck and ballroom/conference center of the impressive Aqua building.  I am a fan of Aqua’s townhomes because without them, there would be a major blank parking garage wall facing out towards the rest of Lakeshore East.  Props go to architect Jeanne Gang and Studio Gang Architects for integrating these townhomes perfectly.  These townhomes appear to be three or four floors tall and they have an amazing view of Lakeshore East’s six acre park.

I just can’t get enough of the wavy/curvy Aqua building in Chicago’s Lakeshore East neighborhood.  Next time you’re in the neighborhood, I highly recommend you taking a look.  They just opened up their amazing outdoor amenity deck.  I’m jealous…

So who dropped the ball on having a consistant paint color for Aqua?

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on May 25, 2009

While perusing different message boards such as SkyscraperPage and SkyscraperCity, I noticed that some of Aqua’s top floors are a totally different color of white from the rest…and it sticks out like a sore thumb.  Even with this white elephant in the room, pun definitely intended, I still love how Aqua has turned out. 

Aqua is topped out at 80 stories, meaning it wont get any taller, but it still has some work to be done on the inside and the outside.  Aqua, a mixed use building whose sales center is located at 430 E. Waterside Drive, will have retail and apartments in the lower portion of of the building with condos on the upper floors.  The Fairmont Chicago intended to expand its hotel into the first 15 floors of Aqua but recently pulled out of the deal leaving a pretty large chunk of the building vacant.

For any questions regarding the sales of Aqua’s condominiums, give them a call at 312-493-8200.  For rental questions, call 312-278-2782.
