Groundbreaking – June 2023 | Completion – 2026
Another landmark tower signed its utilities deal this October – E11even Residences Beyond. Developers PMG and E11EVEN Partners broke ground on the highly anticipated tower just this June.
As per the deal, the highly exclusive E11even Residences Beyond will rise 65 stories with 558 ultra-luxury, turnkey residences, 7,119 square feet of nightclub/bar/lounge, and 21,611 square feet of retail. Boasting the same epic team as its sister tower, E11even Hotel & Residences, Sieger Suarez Architects also designed the Beyond tower, featuring the same sleek, all-glass structure.
New York’s award-winning AvroKo Hospitality Group will be handling interiors at E11even Beyond. Each fully furnished residence will feature flooring selections curated by AvroKo, custom imported ITALKRAFT millwork and cabinetry, custom countertops & backsplashes, PMG's smart home technology system, and more.
The highly exclusive, “members-only” experience at Beyond will give residents access to E11even Hotel and Residences’ amenities via a one-way-only access-controlled sky bridge (but not the other way around). Exclusive amenities will include a rooftop helipad, resort-like sun lounge deck with a 93-foot pool, fully-staffed executive office suites, and more.
Developers recently announced that the Beyond Tower will also be home to The Clayton - a Chicago-based elite social club. The private club will occupy 10,000 square feet of social space on its second floor.
Owners at E11even’s Beyond tower will also be allowed short-term rentals with a minimum stay restriction of 30 days to maintain a sense of privacy. Follow the link for more details on the location, building amenities, and features of E11even Residences Beyond.
Prices start in the mid $300,000s, with a choice of studios to two-bedroom residences, penthouses, and a presidential collection.
