With a highly efficient floor plan and floor-to-ceiling glass, SoNo West offers Clybourn Corridor residents a unique high-rise experience in a low-rise environment. Located near the North and Clybourn shopping district and Goose Island, the building has emerged as an economic catalyst for the neighborhood. Recent zoning changes have limited the heights of newer buildings in the area, and as a result, SoNo maintains exceptional and unobstructed views of the Chicago skyline.

A slim concrete floor slab and elegant structural engineering allow for tall ceilings within the units; the prefabricated window walls that form the façade provide generous daylighting. Steel framing used in the concrete slab formwork remains integrated into the façade, an expression of the efficient construction method. The spacious, welcoming lobby brings greenery inside, and a cool color palette carries through from public spaces to unit interiors. Lounge covered balconies extend the living experience outside while providing shelter from the elements.
