The Orchard

Location:Chicago, Illionis
Client: Hines, McCaffery
Project description: Upon its opening in mid-2020, The Orchard Private Residences delivered 32 luxury condominiums to Chicago’s revered Lincoln Park neighborhood. This marks the completion of the ambitious multi-phase redevelopment of the former Children’s Memorial Hospital site, undertaken in a joint effort by McCaffery and Hines.

This boutique residential building was conceived as a modern take on Chicago’s historic Greystone homes, its uniquely curated designs – from custom fabricated gas lamps and ironwork railings, to specially detailed window frames – support the building’s efforts to blend with the timeless atmosphere of the neighborhood.

Developed with luxury in mind, the building’s elevators open directly into units ranging in size from 1,600SF to 3,600SF with two, three, and four-bedroom options. Generously sized living and dining areas with multiple exposures will flow into custom-designed kitchens by Christopher Peacock. The master suites include large walk-in closets, and spa-like master baths complete with Waterworks soaking tubs and marble adorned showers. Secondary bedrooms each have their own private en-suite bathroom. Spacious covered balconies and terraces provide homeowners with an outdoor extension to their living space, and penthouse residents will have private terraces with views to the skyline and Lake Michigan.

The amenities include a beautifully landscaped rooftop garden furnished with a firepit and outdoor kitchens, an intimate, high-performance fitness center, heated garage parking below the building with underground loading, as well a 24-hour door attendant.

The Orchard features approximately 114,000SF of floor area over seven stories and tops out at about 96’-0” above grade. The project broke ground in early 2019.
