CHARLESTON, S.C. & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CMK Companies (“CMK”), Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (“Greystar”), and RL Accelerated today announced that pre-leasing of units has begun at 717 South Clark Street, the future Imprint Apartment Homes (“Imprint”).
Located along Chicago’s South Loop, on the historic Printer’s Row, the 349-unit high-rise apartment building offers a variety of luxurious floor plans ranging from 478-square-foot studios to 3,276-square-foot four-bedroom penthouses. The project is being developed by CMK Companies and property management services are being provided by Greystar. Pre-leasing services are available through RL Accelerated, the exclusive leasing and marketing partner for Imprint, which has already secured the property’s first lease. The site is currently available by appointment-only hard hat tours, and first move-ins are expected in the spring of 2020.
“We look forward to bringing such beautiful and high quality apartment homes to Printer’s Row,” said Emily Carnes, Regional Property Manager for Greystar in the Greater Chicago Area. “The development blends traditional luxury elements with appealing modern architecture and a first-class suite of amenities to offer. I have no doubt that the superior design and luxurious atmosphere of Imprint Apartment Homes will stand out as one of the preeminent options for Chicago’s most discerning renters.”
Expertly designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, 717 South Clark Street, Imprint, will be housed in the same location where the Palmer Printing building once stood. The development invokes elements of the building’s printing history and offers residents a number of highly desirable amenities including a fitness center, resident lounge, co-working spaces, dog grooming station, bike storage, community terrace with fire pits, top floor observation deck, library and 24 hour concierge. The property has received certification by Green Globes in recognition of the building’s various eco-friendly design features, which include a green roof, significant energy efficiencies, recyclable collection, air quality management and the use of renewable building materials.
