Exhibit on Superior: an upscale residential high rise with a bespoke soul

Opening in January 2017, Magellan Development’s First Smart Living Concept Brings an Elevated Artsy Flair to Chicago’s River North Neighborhood

CHICAGO — January 9, 2017 — Home. It’s the basecamp between work and play. It’s the blank canvas that each person paints to be their own unique work of art. It’s where life happens. For those looking to feather a swanky yet modestly priced nest in the Windy City, new Exhibit on Superior is the ultimate destination for smart living.

Unlike any other residential building in the city, the amenity-packed, 34-floor tower located in the heart of River North possesses an inimitable modern free spirited vibe through and through. Built with an artistic lens by Chicago-based real estate leader, Magellan Development, the 298-unit apartment building is skillfully curated to inspire. Designed by bKL Architecture, prospective residents can choose an apartment to suit the unique way they live. From tastefully simple studios to sleek convertible, 1- 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, every space is decked out with a host of smart and stylish features, including keyless entry, plank flooring, contemporary dark wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances and in-unit washer and dryer.

Efficient use of space for greater personal customization is the name of the game — in some apartments, kitschy Murphy Beds transform from desks to an oasis of peaceful slumber. But at Exhibit on Superior, the simplified design sensibilities of smart living never means sacrificing beauty for functionality. No detail was overlooked when conceiving all living and community spaces. Exhibit on Superior was designed from the ground up with one purpose: to let residents be themselves in the most comfortable, relaxing, inspiring way possible.

With a nod to its artistic name, Exhibit is conveniently located steps from many of the city’s most acclaimed galleries and restaurants. “We created Exhibit on Superior to fill a gap we see in the River North rental market. Most buildings are the same stereotypical high-rise, we wanted to do something different, and create an attractively priced, unique living space with superior amenities befitting a River North lifestyle,” said Jim Losik, National Marketing Director, Magellan Development. “Our philosophy is simple: Live Smart, Live Beautifully.”

Funky, creative communal and private spaces encourage residents and visitors alike to explore and connect with one another. The fifth floor, a full-floor amenity space dubbed Howie’s — a wink to the retro Howard Johnson formerly housed at the location — invites residents to make the space their own. Imaginative yet authentic elements like reclaimed wood, a vintage soda machine or a rope-draped ceiling surprise residents and guests at every turn.
Howie’s includes a fully equipped fitness center, tech lounge and charge “bar,” game area complete with retro Donkey Kong and life-size wall Scrabble, as well as private work and meeting rooms, private dining room and a party suite. The outdoor space is luxuriously outfitted with a 75’ lap pool, hot tub, grilling stations and fire pits. And at Exhibit on Superior, pets are welcome — very welcome. A doggie spa and gated outdoor dog walk make
the high rise a pet-lover’s paradise, while those who prefer to live without furry friends can be accommodated on fur-free floors.

To appeal to socially-conscious residents still seeking style, Exhibit on Superior offers ample green-living. A LEED Silver building, Exhibit provides an eco-friendly choice among the many residential high rises in River North including energy efficient appliances in every apartment to electronic car charging stations. Exhibit on Superior is green, inside and out.

On the west side of the building, a landscaped plaza continues the trend of the building by incorporating a unique and artistic element: a Magellan Development-commissioned sculpture by Swedish artist, Pål Svensson, to inspire all residents, visitors and the entire neighborhood.
“As we open our doors, we’ve already received an incredible amount of interest from people excited and ready to move in and bring the community to life,” said Deanna Yates, Property Manager. “We believe it’s the people that make the place – we designed Exhibit to appeal to a diverse and eclectic resident.”
