for 65-story Mandarin Oriental Tower, Chicago
CHICAGO, March 20, 2006 - If Millennium Park is Chicago's crowning glory, Chicago can anticipate another jewel for her crown. That became apparent today when plans were announced for a spectacular new condominium hotel to be built adjacent to the city's world-famous cultural destination.
On schedule for completion in the spring of 2009, the 65-story glass and steel high-rise will be called, officially, Mandarin Oriental Tower, Chicago. But a fortunate few will prefer to call it "home".
"Location, location, location," said Gerard Kenny, a partner at Palladian
Development, the Chicago-based private partnership behind the project.
"Residents will enjoy a spectacular city, a vibrant neighborhood, and an
investment managed by the most respected hotel operator in the world."
From the bottom up, Chicago's soaring structure will include 250 guestrooms
and suites at Mandarin Oriental, Chicago; 100 residences at Mandarin Oriental
Tower, Chicago; and 150 Mandarin Oriental Tower Condominiums. All
500 units will be offered for sale, from $500,000 to considerably more
than $10 million.
The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Chicago, on floors 32 through 45,
start at 1,600-square-feet and include a full kitchen. Residents
will be treated as full-time hotel guests. Above, in the Tower Condominiums,
owners will receive their own dedicated concierge service, valet parking,
custom interior design, and access to the hotel's spa and restaurants.
