With Loop living all the rage, State Street is the new Michigan Avenue and Marquee at Block 37 is its most primo new property.
From studios to expansive three-bedroom units (shown), Marquee’s apartments boast floor-to-ceiling views of the heart of the city.
Just a few years ago, the Loop was all but abandoned after working hours. But today? It’s the new locale du jour, and Chicagoans are flocking to live downtown like never before.
People want convenience at their fingertips, and more and more, Loop properties look increasingly attractive: From State Street shopping and straight-from-Broadway theater to nearby public transit and total walkability, people want to live in the Loop. Enter Marquee at Block 37, the city’s latest luxe rental property.
Situated on State Street within the Block 37 development in the heart of the Loop, it gives residents immediate access to Block 37’s bountiful retail outlets and movie theater, as well as the Eataly-style food court Latinicity, and that incredible convenience sets it apart from other Loop luxury rentals. “Marquee residents can live, work, and play—literally—under one roof,” says Stephen Sise, Senior Vice President of Portfolio Management with leasing and management firm Golub Realty Services.
“Within an elevator ride, they can go to the AMC Dine-in Theatre, eat at Latinicity or Magnolia Bakery, make a quick shopping trip to Anthropologie, Zara, or Sephora, and access the red and blue line or their office buildings via the Pedway without ever going outside.”
Sleek kitchens come complete with stainless steel appliances, white quartz countertops, and Leedo cabinetry.
Location isn’t the only advantage to life at Marquee, which rises 34 stories and features 690 apartments ranging from studios starting at $1,930 to three-bed, three-baths from $6,832 (rates subject to change).On the fifth floor, the tower has a stunning outdoor pool and sundeck with cabanas, fire pits and grilling stations, as well as a dog run and wash for pet-owning residents.
Inside is a cinema lounge, coffee bars, game room, and event room with catering kitchen. The 38th-floor penthouse level boasts a fitness center (which offers seven complimentary fitness classes a week) plus a rooftop hot tub and terrace, steam room, and sauna.
Additionally, the fifth floor business center and conference room make hosting meetings easy, and Pressbox, an automated dry cleaning service, caters to residents as well. Says Sise, “We think this building holds appeal for everyone from Millennials who are searching for a home in a true live-work-play neighborhood, to young families who want the convenience and family balance that being right downtown provides—and even Baby Boomers who are choosing to move and rent in the city in greater numbers than we’ve ever seen before.” 25 W. Randolph St., 312-372-3737
