Chicago Condo: 801 South Wells - The Paper Place Lofts
For a home with history, this renovated warehouse from the early 1900s has been beautifully modernized without jeopardizing the building’s distinctive vintage character. The Paper Place Lofts was built in 1915, designed by world-famous architect Daniel Burnham, at the end of the South Loop’s notable era as Chicago’s printing district. Located at 801 South Wells Street, in the Printers Row neighborhood, this unique Windy City residence has just over 100 units and on-site fitness facility and parking.
- Maintenance personal on staff seven days a week
- Fitness center
- Laundry facilities in the building & respective units
- Extra storage space
- Bike room
While much of the structure’s antique qualities have been updated to accommodate the twenty-first century home buyer, The Paper Place Lofts still has distinguishing features that reveal the residence’s age, such as barreled 12-foot ceilings and oxidized metal columns. Of course, the rest of the unit finishes and amenities are anything but old-fashioned. The lofts have remodeled interiors, polished hardwood floors, custom track lighting, upgraded kitchens and bathrooms, all new cabinetry and name brand fixtures. And, adding to the units’ edgy, urban loft feel are exposed brick walls and ductwork, multi-paned windows and interior support pillars. The floor plans incorporate open layouts, with combined living, dining and kitchen space.
