On our first day back to work in 2019, we were full throttle ahead on our latest condo project!
Please allow me to introduce you to The Carlyle Residence. The Carlyle building is located just north of the Magnificent Mile in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Designed by Hirschfeld Pawlan & Reinheimer, currently known as FitzGerald & Associates, this building was completed in 1967. Known for their previous work designing what became the Playboy Hotel and is now called the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel, Hirschfeld Pawlan & Reinheimer promised that The Carlyle building would be another example of “unparalleled elegance and comfort.” They did not disappoint, designing a building that featured amenities such as an indoor pool and grand ballroom while showcasing sweeping views of Lake Michigan from each of the 40 units in the building. Today, The Carlyle is still considered one of the most prestigious residence towers in Chicago.
Our apartment includes approximately 3,000 square feet of living space including 3 bedrooms and 4-½ bathrooms. Our scope consists of the gut renovation of Kitchen, Laundry Room, Breakfast Area, and Butler’s Pantry including upgrading HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing, new cabinetry, appliances, and new lighting.
Residing out-of-state for the duration of construction, our clients have engaged Integro to transform their space while managing long-distance communication through various mediums, including weekly video blogs to show construction progress. In collaboration with Beverly Hammel, the goal of this project is to bring these spaces into the modern era while maintaining the historical integrity of the original architecture.
