Located at the corner of Hubbard and Wells Street, Hubbard221 puts residents in a prime location in the River North neighborhood. See what our expert brokers have to say about this brand new building!

Darrell Scott: The first time I visited Hubbard 221, I could tell right away they went above and beyond on their interior finish package.  The building went with a smaller lobby, one floor of amenities, and ‘knocked it out of the park’ on their finishes.  I think that’s what renters are looking for nowadays.  They want their apartment to feel like home, and it gives the sense of a high-end condo building:  smart layouts, nice kitchens and baths, floor to ceiling glass, and big balconies on select apartments.  I’m very impressed with this property!

Tristen Heimann: With a fair amount of previous developments in the outlier neighborhoods, Hubbard221 is Centrum’s first downtown highrise, and they pulled out all the stops! It’s a perfect balance of contemporary finishes of raw luxury materials combined with efficient and spacious layouts. The progressively clean lobby also complements the location and vibe of River North. Certainly going to be one of the most premier buildings in 2018.

Jill Scott:  From the high-end finishes to the central location, Hubbard221 is one of the best new buildings! I especially appreciate the furniture piece that’s included in the studio units to divide the bedroom from the living room. I have not seen a building include furniture before and think it’s a great addition.

Sean Holland: It’s a boutique feel, so the door staff is definitely going to know your name. The building is super high-quality; it’s right on the train but because of the sound engineering it’s almost silent.

Travis Smith: Not only are the floor plans and finishes of Hubbard221 well thought out, but the location is ideal for those who want to be next to everything! The building itself is more of a boutique style too which makes it feel more exclusive than most of the other buildings in the neighborhood.

Sam Kahn: The finishes are top of the line.   The high-end luxury feel with the appliances, flooring, color tone make this building resemble a condo one would purchase in the city.  Combine that with the A+ location of River North, close proximity to the trains at the Merchandise Mart and this building checks a lot of boxes!

Madeline Sears: I love the high-quality finishes and the location!
