Last week we were invited to the Grand Opening of 1225 Old Town; the newest, full amenity rental apartment building on Wells Street.
It was an easy commute for us, as our office is just right down the street. I got to watch every stage of the construction as it went up. So I was excited to see the finished project.
Not familiar with the area or this new fabulous apartment building that went up? Here is a rendering of the completed project. Drive down Wells Street and you can’t miss it…
They did a phenomenal job with the decor of the lobby, pool deck and recreational/party room. There was a full kitchen with island, fireplaces, flat screen TVs, not to mention the floor to ceiling windows with panoramic views.
Some of Old Town’s most popular restaurants were being featured at the event. Kamehachi had an amazing sushi station set up, equipped with a sushi chef and made to order sushi rolls!
Tokyo 21 brought the most amazing bacon and crab rangoons! Those were definitely a favorite among the guests.
Our friends at Pure Kitchen Catering were also passing some of their mouth-watering hor d’oeuvres. I tried so many, but I remember the meat ball being one of my faves! Benchmark was making their famous Korean Tacos in the kitchen for the guests to try. And O’Breins had a sandwich and hot wings station set up! We ended our feasting session with some Pinkberry fro yo – Chocolate Hazelnut…yum!!
By the way, Pinkberry does cater too!
The ambiance of the pool deck was set with the sounds and skills of Fig Media Djs. Ambient music mixed with a chic pool deck and outdoor fireplaces? Are we really in Chicago right now?
Thanks to my friend Billy for taking most of these pictures! He was in town from New York, we recruited him for the night and he seemed to really enjoy himself!
Looking to live on Wells in the heart of Old Town? Check out 1225 – they offer 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms with all different views of the city. On-site gym, parking and even a grocery store on the first level (Plum Market coming Spring 2013).
