Situated at the southeast corner of Chicago Avenue and Wabash Avenue within Chicago's Gold Coast area, The Bernardin is just one city block from Chicago's premiere shopping district, The Magnificent Mile.
The Bernardin was fashioned to be Chicago's first boutique apartment residence. Intended to serve those seeking to live in a building with all of the amenities of an owner-occupied building, The Bernardin exceeded all prior standards of luxury rental living. Its Italian-inspired, multi-colored facade featured shutters, flower boxes, cornices, and other architectural details. The rich European look extended to the interior spaces with lush fabrics, natural stone and jewel tones selected by Intra-Spec, the award-winning firm that counts the Hotel Burnham as one of its many successful interiors.
Residents can access the services of a full-time concierge; an amenity-level floor with a gymnasium, pilates studio, party room, business center, a landscaped garden and lap pool; guest suite; enclosed parking and much more. In-house retailers Devon Seafood Grill, White Hen Pantry, Bank of America, and One Hour Cleaners provided added convenience.
