CHICAGO, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sienna, Streeterville's newest apartment community, is now open—and it brings a long-awaited mid-rise option to this neighborhood dominated by high-rise towers. Chicago-based Golub & Company, together with Diversified Real Estate Capital, announced today that the first residents have moved into the six-story mixed-use apartment community at 423 Ohio Street. Sienna's limited number of boutique rental apartments offer a spacious, contemporary loft design amidst the lively urban Streeterville neighborhood.
"Sienna puts residents in the center of one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods in a more intimate setting than a typical high-rise building," said Golub & Company President and CEO Michael Newman. "Sienna's relaxed yet upscale approach to city living stands apart in downtown Chicago and will draw new residents, particularly those seeking a non-high-rise option, to this popular area."
Sienna includes five floors of apartments, with 10 residences per floor; the residential floors are complemented by one floor of ground-level retail totaling 5,600 square feet. Open Houses are scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., making a visit to Sienna easy after work.
The one- and two-bedroom floor plans feature oak-tone plank flooring throughout, exposed concrete ceilings, European-style frameless kitchen cabinetry, marble mosaic backsplashes, quartz countertops, stainless steel KitchenAid appliances, porcelain wall and floor tile in bathrooms, in-unit, full-size washer and dryer sets, USB ports in kitchens and bedrooms, and Nest Learning Thermostats.
Sienna's amenities include a rooftop deck with grilling stations and lounge furniture, a fitness center, smartphone video intercom system, automated package pick-up system, bike storage, a dog run and pet grooming station, and Wi-Fi in common areas. The building was designed to meet LEED Silver certification. For more information about features and amenities, including floor plans, visit www.siennachicago.com.
