The residential tower at 600 North Fairbanks combines innovative European design, intelligent architecture, smart floor plans, and an outstanding location in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago.
The exterior of this condominium tower is contemporary and transparent, featuring a curved glass curtain wall at the corner of Fairbanks and Ohio. The taut enclosure defines a simple and elegant solution for high-rise living. Meanwhile, the design of the interior is restrained and minimal, with exposed concrete pillars and floor-to-ceiling glass that allows for maximum visibility and increased transparency.
All units contain outdoor spaces that are inset for privacy and to enhance the sleek façade surface, contributing to the tower’s presence as a beacon for modern living in the heart of Streeterville.
