Embry is the embodiment of excellence, and it’s giving a new name to luxury living in the heart of Chicago’s West Loop!
Clayco’s partner company, Lamar Johnson Collaborative, designed a 16-story modern condominium tower for Sulo Development. LJC leveraged the rich history and distinctive character of the area to craft a dynamic 256,000-square-foot structure that conveys the city’s amazing architectural palette.
Embry West Loop has unparalleled city views and redefines the standard of living not only in the neighborhood but for all of Chicago. The development has column-free unit layouts, oversized terraces, and detailed design along a tree-lined street. With a chef’s kitchen, gym, dog walk, spa, and more, there are various amenities to fit the needs of the unique residents who will enjoy the space.
Great job to the teams who brought such an elegant project to life, including Ventana for windows and curtains, Kara Mann Design for interior design, and the many perspectives and ideas that made this endeavor a success.
Over 80% of the 58 Units are under contract, making Embry one of the strongest-selling condo buildings downtown. According to TheRealDeal, even Gold Glove outfielder Ian Happ closed on a condo unit there! I can’t wait to see how this residential tower continues to transform city life for Chicagoans.
Emily Sisson and I have something in common, and it’s not just the fact that we both love athleticism.
Immigration has always been a critical point of value in America’s prosperity. The “American Dream” would not be possible without the contribution of generations of immigrants to society, not to mention the priceless importance of multiculturalism. Despite this, the rhetoric surrounding immigration and its influence on U.S. institutions and ways of life has become increasingly hostile and rooted in misinformation. I recently read the book “How Migration Really Works: The Facts About the Most Divisive Issue in Politics” by Hein de Haas. I highly recommend it to everyone to better understand migration policies and national impact. As we get farther into this election year, debates surrounding immigration are escalating. Still, people don’t understand the fundamentals of migration or how it truly affects the U.S. To mitigate this, Hein de Haas draws on decades of research to destroy myths and set the record straight. The book highlights tense topics like global migration not being at an all-time high, climate change not leading to mass migration, and immigration mainly benefiting the wealthy instead of workers. He also notes that border restrictions have produced more migration – something that is commonly misreported and viewed as the only “solution” to the migration “problem.”
When our Clayco team finds a company that mirrors our mission and determination, we fortify that partnership by pooling resources on as many projects as possible. Vision Electric & Systems is one of Clayco’s excellent subcontractors that we have had the pleasure of working on several developments with. Subcontractors play a pivotal role by bringing multifaceted advantages and expertise across construction efforts.
