VISTA Property Tops Out Construction on River North Rentals

Developer VISTA Property and its general contractor, Skender, recently topped out construction at 741 N Wells St., a new mixed-use multifamily rental building in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. Designed by Antunovich Associates, the 21-story, 201,000-square-foot development will include 168 apartment units and communal tenant amenities. 

“We are thrilled to be adding another beautiful mixed-use property to one of the city’s most vibrant and lively areas,” said Ark Latt, chief development officer, VISTA Property. “Our thanks goes out to the teams at Skender and Antunovich Associates for their hard work throughout this process, and to the 2nd Ward alderman and community for their ongoing partnership and collaboration.” 

The multifamily building will include 50 studios, 101 one-bedrooms and 17 two-bedrooms, along with a rooftop terrace with pool, meeting facilities, exercise area, bicycle storage and parking for roughly 50 vehicles. Luxury Living Chicago has been engaged to handle leasing.
