ARC at Old Colony

CA Ventures LLC teamed up with Chicago developer, Mr. Keith Giles, to repurpose the historic Old Colony Building into a luxury housing development, on which BKV Group was proud to provide interior design services. This 17-story, “early skyscraper” was built in 1893-94 by Holabird & Roche, and was first landmarked in the 1970’s. Located in the South Loop neighborhood in downtown Chicago, this building boasts 111 units and several great amenity spaces, including numerous gathering spaces, study lounges, blowout bar, clubroom, and a rooftop deck. The building was restored to its historic condition and is full of remarkable details alluding to its past. Salvaged elevator cages and custom “OCB” doorknobs are featured in several of the common areas, while much of the original marble shines throughout the building.
