Amenities offer a range of spaces, such as a private club area with an attached kitchen and bar, a fitness center, a bike room, and a rooftop deck with grilling stations, fire pits, and city views.
Sullivan Goulette & Wilson Architecture is behind the masonry design, with a facade comprised of tan face brick and limestone accents. Throughout the design are dark metal trimmings that further provide an industrial aesthetic.
Parking will provide a total of 14 spaces, contained in a ground-level garage. The development is also heavily transit-oriented, with the nearest CTA L Red Line service available less than a two-minute walk north to Sheridan station. As far as bus lines, service for Routes X9, 80, and 151 are all available within a two-minute walk of the property line.
In line with its branded name, the building is within a six-minute walk of Wrigley Field and the surrounding Wrigleyville commercial area. Various parks can also be found nearby, with Gill Park via a five-minute walk southeast and the Waveland Park area via a 15-minute walk east.
