Parkline Chicago Switches Condo Units to Rentals as Downtown Market Heats Up

Parkline Chicago developer Moceri + Roszak has completed construction on the Loop residential tower’s  24 condominium residences and will now lease those units as ultra-luxury apartments to capitalize on the booming downtown apartment rental market. Named the “Penthouse Collection,” the 24 high-end apartments sit atop 189 rentals that reached full lease-up in July.

 “When you look at the data on the recent lease-ups in the Chicago area and the tremendous success we’ve had leasing our existing apartments at Parkline since we started in February 2021, it makes sense to shift our for-sale condos to ultra-luxury rentals,” said Thomas Roszak, FAIA, partner of Moceri + Roszak and principal of Thomas Roszak Architecture, Parkline’s architect. 

He added, “The valuation of the building simply has greater potential with the upper-level residences renting as penthouse apartments rather than being on the market as condos. The shift is a logical, calculated business decision.”
