This high-rise residential tower has an excellent downtown location and great amenities for the city dweller. Park Millennium is half a block north of Chicago's hottest new outdoor public space (Millennium Park) and just south of the riverfront where you'll find some of the city's best dining and accommodations. The street address is 222 N. Columbus Drive, which is situated in the New East Side neighborhood, a small pocket of new development bordered by the Chicago River to the north, Lake Michigan to the east, Millennium Park to the south, and Michigan Avenue to the west.
Units in the Park Millennium vary from deluxe studios to sprawling three-bedroom condos. The building's height allows for incredible views and light-filled interiors. Some units have private balconies and large terraces. Residences at Park Millennium have floor-to-ceiling windows and a number of different floor plans to choose from. Finishes are updated and offer comfortable, efficient living.
The building has a 24-hour gym with a 25-meter lap pool and large Jacuzzi. There are men's and women's locker rooms equipped with dry heat saunas. Just past the pool deck is an expansive outdoor veranda with trees, patio seating, barbeque grills and plenty of room to hangout with friends and family. Park Millennium's business center has several high-speed computers, printer, fax, scanner and photocopier, plus its own library of books and novels for resident use. The complex also features a party room for hosting special engagements. It is outfitted with plush furniture, a big screen TV, full kitchen and dining room. The lobby is also elegantly appointed with clustered seating areas and a cozy fireplace. Dry cleaners are conveniently located on the first floor of the building, as is an ATM machine and self-serve laundry center.
Park Millennium is near Chicago's 20-mile lakefront bike trail and fortunately for residents there is a bike room in which to store bicycles between rides. Additional storage lockers and garage parking are also available on-site. Even though there's a huge park down the street from Park Millennium, the development has a dog relief area where Fido can go out quickly when needed. And the Pedway is a handy sheltered passage to Macy's and other great shopping stops when the weather isn't so nice. It connects the Park Millennium with restaurants and retail on Michigan Avenue and the Metra and L stations along Randolph Street.
