More Than 1200 Guests Celebrate the Grand Opening of The Sinclair Apartments in Chicago’s Gold Coast
Friends, colleagues, partners and neighbors enjoyed two days of exclusive events at the 390-unit luxury apartment high-rise.
The grand opening of The Sinclair ushers in a new, elevated, modern standard of apartment luxury in the Gold Coast that people have been waiting for.
It’s not an easy task to raise the bar on services and interior spaces in a neighborhood that is known for its grandeur and elegance, but we embraced the challenge and created something spectacular.
The two-evening event celebrated the opening of the building’s six model apartments, furnished and decorated by Morgante Wilson Architects,Brianne Bishop Design, Michael Richman Interiors, Cort Furniture, Brook Furniture, and Modani Furniture, with attendees voting on their favorite model. Morgante Wilson won the design contest on Tuesday evening and Michael Richman won on Wednesday evening. Brianne Bishop was recognized for “Best Design for the Single Girl.”
Guests were treated to pop-up displays of men’s and women’s fall fashions from Trunk Club, with a $100 raffle each night; paddle board yoga hosted by Chicago SUP; chair massages, a juice bar and equipment demonstrations by LulaFit; a signature cocktail; and delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts from Mon Ami Gabi, Café Ba-Ba-Reeba and Catering by Michael’s. Perillo BMW and Bentley Gold Coast luxury car dealerships showcased new automobiles at the building’s entrance.
The grand opening events were also a time for Fifield Realty Corp. to honor the many female employees and consultants who worked on The Sinclair, including Patty McHugh, president of McHugh Construction; Elissa Morgante, co-founder of Morgante Wilson Architects; and Sheyla Conforte, leader of the interior design practice at Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB).
The success of The Sinclair is due in large part to the high-achieving team of female professionals who worked on this project. Thanks to the collaboration of SCB, McHugh Construction, and all our design, finance, leasing and construction partners, The Sinclair offers residents the very best in service, craftsmanship and design.
“This is the third time we’ve decorated a model for one of Randy and Steve’s buildings and each time it’s an inspiring process to deliver a model that reflects the sophistication, comfort, and modernity that is the hallmark of a Fifield building,” said Elissa Morgante, co-principal of Morgante Wilson Architects. “Randy’s style and passion for exceptional design mirrors our firm’s commitment to delivering best-in-class living spaces.”
The Sinclair offers many features renters want today, including white and grey decor and plenty of outdoor living areas!
Residents will have access to skyline and lake views from the Gold Coast’s largest amenity deck, featuring an outdoor pool and spa, sun terrace, lounge seating, cabanas, fire pits, outdoor grilling kitchens with intimate dining areas, gardens, and an 850-square-foot dog run.
Indoor amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness room featuring a Pilates Cadillac Reformer, Power Plate, and separate yoga and private physical therapy studios; 5.1-surround sound screening room; resident lounge with chef’s demonstration kitchen; business center and conference room; dog spa by Baroo; Starbuck’s coffee bar; bicycle kitchen; 24-hour concierge; and secure-access garage. The Sinclair’s amenity spaces showcase notable artwork from renowned artists such as Alexander Calder, Peter Tunney, Ryland Arnaldi, Damien Hirst and Frank Stella.
Residents are steps away from all restaurants, boutiques, nightlife and entertainment available in the Gold Coast. The building is within walking distance of the CTA’s Red Line Division station and bus stops, providing easy access to the Loop, additional transit lines, Midway and O’Hare International airports and neighborhoods all over the city. Adjacent to The Sinclair is a new 58,000-square-foot flagship Jewel Osco grocery store, which connects to the tower via a sky bridge that is exclusive to residents.
