225 East Columbus known as Aqua

225 East Columbus known as Aqua New Eastside condos for sale and the best Chicago real estate listings are below.

225 N Columbus known as The Aqua is a striking piece of architecture in the ever more popular New Eastside neighborhood in Downtown Chicago. Named for its dynamic and flowing design, Architect Jeanne Gang aimed to create a building that mimicked the topography of nature while keeping in mind views of the surrounding landmarks, rivers, parks, and the lake. Making lists like Martha Thorne’s “Most groundbreaking structures of the last decade”, no detail was spared in the construction of this architectural gem. The building is 82 stories high with 262 units and home to one of the largest green roofs in Chicago. The unique shape and size of each balcony allow conversation between neighbors and ample space to entertain. Living at the aqua towers places you just steps from all that Downtown Chicago has to offer including world-class restaurants, shops, and theatres as well as landmark sites such as Navy Pier, Lake Michigan, and The Museums of Contemporary art Chicago. The Aqua tower not only includes rental units and condos but also offices and a hotel. Invite friends and family to visit with the comfort of having them stay in one of the hotel rooms in the very building you reside in. Not to mention the plethora of amenities available to residents year-round. The fitness center boasts a running track, indoor lap pool, Pilates room, sauna, steam room, and any state of the art fitness equipment you may desire. For fun and entertainment, there is an outdoor pool, cabanas, fire pits, grills, billiards, a basketball court, a movie theatre, and a media room.
