Germain House’s loft apartments feature exposed brick and beams, high-end finishes and natural oak floors. The boutique, refined loft building will include a rooftop deck with co-working space, Pressbox dry cleaning, Package Concierge, pet wash, secure building entrance, and a communal lobby.

Residents of Germain House can expect modern kitchens with open shelving, Quest soft-close grey cabinetry, quartz countertops, and Samsung stainless steel appliances. The curated finishes include white oak hardwood throughout, IOTAS smart home features, in-unit washer/dryer, ceiling heights between 12 to 16 feet, and select floor plans provide walk-in closets, double vanity sinks, and frameless glass showers.

“We are excited to deliver a unique, luxury offering in the downtown Chicago rental market with Germain House,” said Jason Fishleder, Principal of Rockwell Partners and Head of Acquisitions. “We’ve worked to celebrate the original building’s architectural character while creating apartments and community spaces that residents will be proud to call home.”

Originally built as a lumber yard in 1886, Germain House’s location has seen many adaptations over time. In 1916, the industrial structure became home to the Central Leather & Embossing Company, a manufacturer of leather goods. The company name later changed to the Germain Company. Along with the renovation and expansion of this historical building, the surrounding River West area has changed greatly in recent years.

Luxury Living Chicago Realty is the exclusive leasing and marketing team for Germain House. Aaron Galvin, founder, and CEO is confident that the building’s aesthetic will attract new residents. “While Chicago’s market is filled with new inventory, Germain House will undoubtedly appeal to renters seeking a unique apartment living experience, ” said Galvin. “The lofted floor plans, soaring ceilings, and luxury finishes create one-of-a-kind homes, in a neighborhood that has seen a lot of growth in the last couple of years. More and more renters are including River West in their search and this boutique building will stand out.”
