Pearl Properties selected Eimer Design to help renovate the historic Bonwit Teller Building and an adjoining property into 100 market rate apartments. Working together to resolve miss-aligned floor levels between buildings identified an opportunity for a 7,000 square foot amenities space on the 3rd floor which became the center of interaction and activity. Accessing this level became a challenge as both properties have retail condominiums at street level. The resolution was creating a minimal street level lobby that leads to an exterior catwalk rising on the building exterior which leads to a 3 level interior atrium space. The lobby, amenity space, corridors and units are stylized based on inspiration from Bonwit Teller fashions of the 20’, 30’s and 40’s.
