The apartment boom in downtown Chicago is not slowing down. And the vast majority of the developments are large high-rises with 300 to 500 apartments each. In a sea of giants, when something boutique pops up in an extraordinary location, like Michigan Ave and 13th Street, it’s definitely worth taking a look.

The Fairfax Luxury Lofts is the newest building to open in the vibrant South Loop neighborhood, and it’s also the most unique. Just seven stories and 30 total units, this property provides an alternative to the renter looking for a minimal lifestyle where the interior finishes are the top priority.


The beautifully equipped kitchens feature 1-inch quartz counters, vast amounts of cabinet space, under-mount sinks and gas cooking with high-end Whirlpool ranges. The baths also have the 1-inch quartz counters and under-mount sinks, gorgeous subway tiles and wonderful lighting. As a bonus, the apartments even feature Whirlpool Duet front-load washers and dryers.

The modern elements of the kitchens and baths truly complement the 100-plus year old building’s original architectural details, such as visible beams in the ceilings, timber structural pillars and absolutely stunning exposed brick. It’s a one-of-kind loft living experience.

The property is currently pre-leasing for late-September and October move-in dates. Each floor at The Fairfax has just five units, with 1-bedroom/1-baths starting at $1550, 1-bedroom + den/1-baths and 1-bedroom + den/2-baths both starting at $2150, and a phenomenal 2-bedroom + den/2-bath coming in at $2495 featuring unobstructed views of Soldier Field, with square footage ranging from 750 sq. ft. to 1250 sq. ft.

The Fairfax is situated walking distance to everything the South Loop has to offer, from the convenient proximity of Trader Joe’s, Jewel, Target and Whole Foods, to some of the city’s best restaurants like Alinea and Mercat La Planxa. It’s also steps away from city’s best landmarks like Grant Park, the Museum Campus and Lake Michigan.

The Fairfax has extremely limited availability so make sure to follow the link below to see photos, floor plan information and schedule a showing.
