While sensational views are key when it comes to Chicago living, so are the added amenities for many prospective residents. For some, that means seeking out things like swimming pools that not only add value to rentals, but also pool decks with plenty of space to enjoy the skyline and surrounding scenery.
With that in mind, there are a select number of Chicago apartment buildings with the best swimming pool decks in the city.
111 W. Wacker
One of these is located at 111 W Wacker, within the OneEleven development. This luxury apartment building enjoys a resort-like indoor swimming pool and spa that opens up to an accompanying sundeck with the inclusion of a glass, retractable wall.
With two levels of outdoor sundecks it’s easy to see that a major draw of the sleek building is its abundant outdoor lounging and entertaining space.
Exhibit on Superior
The next exceptional property is Exhibit on Superior, a 34-story apartment tower located in the Near Northside. The sophisticated building provides a full floor amenity deck with views of a private park and the city.
The property’s outdoor lap pool, fire pits and outdoor hot tub are surrounded by lounge seating, with plenty of room to soak in the sunshine and the skyline views. The floor is complimented by an array of other amenities just inside, including a lounge, library nook and game area, along with other extras.
Marquee at Block 37
In addition, Marquee at Block 37 is a 38-story tower, right in the Loop. Close to a number of Chicago attractions, shops, restaurants and entertainment offerings, the building includes several terraces, serving up dramatic city views.
The outdoor swimming pool and sundeck features cabanas, while there’s also a rooftop spa terrace. Other extras of the property include a steam room and sauna, grilling stations, plus a fitness center and fire pits.
