Situated at the southeast corner of Chicago Avenue and Wabash Avenue within Chicago's Gold Coast area, The Bernardin is just one city block from Chicago's premiere shopping district, "The Magnificent Mile". Among the world-renowned destinations within close walking distance are the Park Hyatt and Peninsula hotels, Ralph Lauren and RL restaurant, the historic Water Tower and Water Tower Place mall as well as Michigan Avenue's top tourist destination, American Girl Place. Northwestern Hospital and Loyola University Water Tower Campus are also within comfortable walking distances.
The Bernardin is fashioned to be Chicago's first boutique apartment residence. Intended to serve those seeking to live in a building with all of the amenities of an owner-occupied building, The Bernardin exceeds all prior standards of luxury rental living. Its Italian-inspired multi-colored facade features shutters, flower boxes, cornices, and other architectural details. The rich European look extends to the interior spaces with lush fabrics, natural stone and jewel tones selected by Intra-Spec, the award winning firm that counts the Hotel Burnham as one of its many successful interiors.
Residents enjoy the services of a full-time concierge; an amenity-level floor with a gymnasium, pilates studio, party room, business center, a landscaped garden, lap pool, guest suite; enclosed parking; and much more. In-house retailers Devon Seafood Grill, White Hen Pantry, Bank of America, and One Hour Cleaners provide added convenience.
Built in 2005, the Bernardin has 171 residential units, 201 parking spots, and 20,000 square feet of prime retail space.
