North Michigan Avenue's first skyscraper in more than five years, new luxury rental MILA makes an impressive debut.
Bountiful roof space—including FORTY+ONE outdoor lounge, pictured—is just one of the luxe amenities of MILA, which sits a stone’s throw from the Magnificent Mile.
Chicago’s latest luxury rental is perfect for residents who love retail therapy. Located at 200 N. Michigan Ave., MILA is a stone’s throw from the city’s shopping epicenter of the Magnificent Mile across the Chicago River; there’s even retail space in the building’s first and second floors. But this—the first skyscraper to go up on Michigan Avenue in more than five years—is more than a rental for those looking to walk to Nordstrom or to work. With Millennium Park, the Theater District, and the Riverwalk all steps away, this property is for those looking for a lifestyle change.
“The Loop’s population continues to grow, as residents increasingly look for an ‘ondemand’ lifestyle—everything they could need outside their front door or with a push of a button,” says Chad Broderick, Vice President of the developer of MILA, the John Buck Company. MILA delivers that lifestyle with a bounty of luxe amenities, including on-site concierge and 24/7 door staff; pet salon and grooming station with outdoor dog run; bike storage with tune-up station and bike share; state-of-the-art fitness center; and, on the 41st floor, outdoor rooftop lounge FORTY+ONE, which includes a rooftop pool and sundeck, bocce ball court, fire pits, and outdoor televisions.
Units at MILA boast gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The city’s downtown parks, museums, and restaurants are all within walking distance from MILA as well; the building itself has about 20,000 square feet of retail for residents’ use, including a Starbucks. MILA was designed by BKL Architecture as a modern reflection of the neighboring Carbide & Carbon Building to the north. The interiors of the units are just as modern; designed by Phillip Koether Architects, all have sleek stainless steel appliances, minimalist white and light gray walls, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase phenomenal city views, and kitchens that feature stylish accents like subway tile backsplash, not to mention abundant counter space on a kitchen island.
“Despite all the cranes and new deliveries in the city,” sums up Broderick, “Chicago’s renters are still demanding a well-located luxury product.” From Broderick’s perspective, MILA is it. “We saw an opportunity to create value on what had been an underutilized site; from the amenities, the address, the location, and the views, there is just so much that separates this project from the competition.” 201 N. Garland Ave., 312-884-0088
