Alta @K Station

Distinguished Building Award Submission

Alta @K Station is a high-rise luxury apartment complex with 848 luxury apartment units in two towers, 692 parking spaces, and 12,000 s.f. of retail space along Kinzie Street. Echoing the strong massing, decorative crown, and verticality of Chicago’s deco buildings of the ‘20’s, the reinforced concrete, glass, and aluminum buildings rise above a common base containing lobbies, parking, and a 32,000 s.f. amenity deck, which serves to connect the two towers at the eighth level. The 37 –story and 41 –story towers are situated to permit spectacular views for the units in all directions, and to minimize the presence of the parking garage on the street frontages. Special features include an expansive, lushly landscaped deck with an Olympic size swimming pool, hot tub, fire pit, a two-sided basketball court and gym, fitness center with juice bar, locker rooms with saunas, party room wit kitchenette, stadium theater for 24, lounge and billiard room with bar.

Located in the West Loop - a component of the $750 million, mixed-use, master-planned K Station development - Alta @ K Station has earned distinction as Chicago’s first LEED Gold certified rental residence in a major thoroughfare with convenient access to public transportation.
